A seven-year run as U.S. Lacrosse Women’s Division Intercollegiate Associates national champions came to an end Saturday for the Cal Poly women’s lacrosse club team, which lost the WDIA National Championship at Invesco Field in Denver to Colorado State, 8-5 in overtime.

The defeat also brought to a close the Mustangs’ 28-game WDIA winning streak.

Colorado State, which became the first WDIA champion besides Cal Poly, scored the contest’s final six goals.

Cal Poly, which held a 3-1 halftime lead, failed to score in the game’s final 23 minutes.

The Mustangs, who advanced to the championship by edging UC Santa Barbara 11-10 in overtime Friday, placed Kaitlin Chandler, Molly Sauer and Paige Spalding on the all-tournament team.
