Division III women's soccer tournament history

The first Division III women's soccer championship was held in 1986. UC San Diego won five national championships before leaving for Division II.  TCNJ (formerly Trenton St.) and Wheaton (Ill.) have collected three titles, but Messiah holds top bragging rights with five championships, all coming in an eight-year stretch from 2005 to 2012.  The last three years have had first-time champions, the first time that has happened since the years three, four and five of the women's tournament.
