Eight years. Seven national championships. It's been an incredible, historic — you name the adjective — run for the Northwestern women's lacrosse program, which claimed national crown No. 7 in May to highlight the 2011-12 Northwestern athletic year. The seven championships rank second all-time behind perennial power Maryland's 10, won from 1986-2010. Even more impressive, the one year during the streak that Northwestern didn't win it all, it lost in the 2010 title game to Maryland.
