FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Gene Doris, Fairfield University Athletic Director and chair of the NCAA Division I lacrosse committee, presented the University of North Carolina captains and squad with the championship trophy after the Tar Heels 14-13 overtime victory over No. 1 seed in Maryland at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
The first unseeded team to win the title, North Carolina became the first school since Princeton in 1994 to capture both the men's and women's championships in the same year.
The Tar Heels also won the championship on the 25th anniversary of its last title in 1991.
Doris is in his fourth year on the lacrosse committee and in his first year as chair.
The Stags captured the CAA (Colonial Athletic Association) regular season title this season -- their third straight regular season championship -- before falling to No. 11 nationally ranked Towson in the CAA tourney.
Doris has been the Stags athletic director for 22 years.
