In 2012 the team posted its best finish ever with an impressive 19-3-1 overall record and was undefeated in league play. The team won the MCCAC state tournament and the NJCAA Region 21 tournament earning a second bid to the national championship tournament. This year the team won the first round and competed in its first national final four (semifinals). The team is currently ranked sixth in the NSCAA national poll, and fifth in the NJCAA poll. Overall the team has won six MCCAC state titles, competed in seven NJCAA Region 21 finals, won two regional titles (2010, 2012), played twice in the national tournament in the last three years, and has named five All Americans since 2009. In the past two years the team has posted just one loss in conference play.
