 CONGRATULATING ASHLAND UNIVERSITY WOMEN'S BASKETBALL TEAM FOR WINNING 
                     NCAA DIVISION II CHAMPIONSHIP

  (Mr. GIBBS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute.)
  Mr. GIBBS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor and congratulate the 
Ashland University women's basketball team for winning the NCAA 
Division II Championship. The Ashland Eagles earned Ashland 
University's first basketball national championship with a 71-56 
victory over New York's Dowling College on Friday, March 29, 2013.
  I would like to congratulate the Eagles MVP, AU senior Kari 
Daugherty, for contributing 26 points to the win. Ms. Daugherty was 
also honored with the Player of the Year title for the division.
  I would also like to congratulate Coach Sue Ramsey for leading her 
team to victory. This sportsmanship, determination, and hard work 
displayed by the Ashland Eagles throughout the season has been 
unparalleled. This momentous accomplishment deserves the most sincere 
congratulations, and we're very proud of Ashland University and the 
Ashland Eagles.
  Go Eagles.
