U.S. Rep. Andy Barr stopped by Transylvania’s campus Monday morning to honor the 2023 national champion Pioneers for their undefeated season and NCAA DIII win.
Barr, who represents Lexington and Kentucky’s sixth congressional district, presented each of the women’s basketball team members with a copy of the Congressional Record honoring the team in April.
“This team and its perfect season, culminating in a championship, brings pride not only to the Transylvania campus, but to the city of Lexington and the commonwealth of Kentucky,” Barr said. “I congratulate coach Fulks, all the staff members, and especially the players on winning the NCAA championship and having such a memorable season.”
The Pioneers capped off an undefeated season, winning the school’s first national championship April 1 in Dallas, defeating the Christopher Newport University Captains 57-52.
