Over the last eight seasons, the Pointers have posted a 191-42 overall record. They have been incredibly tough against non-conference competition with a 84-9 record over their last 91 games with two of the losses coming in the 2003-04 final four when the Pointers placed fourth in the country after winning the WIAC regular season and tournament titles.

In 1987, the Pointers won the WWIAC title and finished 27-2 overall under coach Linda Wunder en route to their first national title. They beat Concordia-Moorhead (Minn.) 81-74 in the championship game in Scranton, Pa. and also played three home games before reaching the final four. Donna Pivonka and Karla Miller were both named to the alltournament team. The Pointers finished runner-up in the WIAC regular season and postseason tournament in 2002, but still earned an at-large bid to the national tournament and took full advantage. They defeated St. Lawrence (N.Y.) 67-65 in the finals in Terre Haute, Ind. to finish the season 30-3. Along the way, the Pointers ousted fourtime defending champion Washington (Mo.), snapping the Bears’ 70-game home court winning streak.

Carry Boehning was the tournament MVP and Tara Schmitt also earned all-tournament accolades. In 2004-05, the Pointers featured the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Division III National Player of the Year in Amanda Nechuta, who led the WIAC in scoring three straight seasons and earned the opportunity to play in the WBCA all-star game against the nation’s top Division I players at the 2005 Women’s Final Four. 19
