Springfield entered the final weekend of the DIII men's volleyball season the heavy favorites to repeat, and they didn't disappoint. The Pride swept Stevens, 3-0, to win the national championship Saturday evening, just 24 hours after sweeping Vassar in the semifinals.
Springfield has won five of the seven national championships since DIII men's volleyball gained an official NCAA championship in 2012. It was their fourth sweep in the national title.
Springfield didn't lose to a single DIII competitor this season, finishing with a 31-2 record. National Player of the Year Figueroa Velez played like the master he is all weekend.
Stevens hit under .100 during the three-set sweep in the title match, while Springfield hit above .350, winning 25-20, 25-14, 25-9.
