HOLLAND, MICH. (AP) - George Fox won its first NCAA Division III women’s championship Saturday, beating Washington, Mo., 60-53 behind Kristen Shielee’s 17 points to finish the season at 32-0.

Elise Kuenzi added 14 points and Sage Indendi 13 for George Fox, the sixth unbeaten Division III national champion. The Bruins, of Portland, Ore., hadn’t advanced past the round of 16 before this season.

Zoe Unruh and Janice Evans scored 11 points apiece for Washington (26-5). The Bears, of St. Louis, were denied their fifth national title and first since an unprecedented four-year reign in Division III ended in 2001.

The title game was played before a crowd of 1,830 at DeVos Fieldhouse at Hope College.
