Only 4 schools have had more than 1 3-time champ (Iowa, Ok St, Iowa St AND Lock Haven). Interesting that Lock Haven is one of only 4 schools with more than one 3-time champ.
    All of Jaworsky's were at UNC. I believe he missed AA as a freshman, transferred and then won it the next three years.

    Am I missing something here? The only 3 time champ I see from Lock Haven is Gray Simons (Lock Haven) 1960-1962, who is the other?

    You're absolutely right. I guessing scrolling down, I thought I saw Lock Haven twice. My bad. Thanks for the correction.

    Shane--thanks for the clarification about Jaworsky. I wasn't sure if his first had come at OSU, but obviously not. How many starters transfer from OSU to UNC? I know that Meade transferred to WVU, but his case was a bit particular.

We're obviously hoping that the current team will get our first of many 3-time NCAA champs.

    I was looking on the Minnesota website and note that Minnesota has had 4 2-time NCAA champs but they've never had a 3-timer either.

    I know that Iowa, Ok St, Iowa St (and presumably Oklahoma) have had quite a number of 3-timers (and 4-timers in the case of Ok St and Iowa St). What other schools have had a 3-time NCAA champ? I can think of Caruso from Lehigh, Hubbard from Michigan, Kemp from Wisconsin, Ricky Bonomon of Bloomsburg off the top of my head.
    I see Andy Matter's name listed here. How about Brett Matter?

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
