WUSTL secured its second-straight conference title and gained an automatic bid to the 2013 NCAA Division III Women’s Soccer Championship with a 4-0 win at New York University Sunday, Nov. 3, in Riverdale, N.Y.

The University Athletic Association Championship is the fourth in six seasons for head coach Jim Conlon and the ninth in school history.

WUSTL is off to a 16-1 start. The Bears have outscored their opponents 64-4, posting shutouts in 13 games. WUSTL suffered its lone loss of the season against then-No. 1 Wheaton College.
