"As a program, we're so proud to have the opportunity to represent alumni, staff, the Athletic Department, along with the entire University who have committed so much time and energy towards the success of the program this season," Portland head coach Michelle French said. "The student-athletes have showed an unwavering dedication to who they wanted to be this season on and off the field. It's incredible to see them be rewarded for that commitment."
The Pilots have put together a stellar season, going 11-4-3 for their best record by win percentage since 2013. They made their way back into the top 25 this year after sitting outside the top 25 every year since 2014. They went a perfect 9-0-3 at home this season, their first undefeated year at home since 2010 and are ranked 41st in the latest RPI rankings.
Portland has a rich playoff history, with the Pilots making the tournament 21 times in its program's history with a 49-17-5 record overall. They've won two national championships, once in 2002 and again in 2005, and are one of only seven schools to have multiple national championships." (Promo Copy)
