City Congratulates Drury Panthers National Title

The City of Springfield congratulates the Drury Panthers on today's exciting win in the NCAA Division II championship game.

"Our most excited congratulations to Coach Hesser, the Panther team, and the entire Drury family on their victory and the NCAA Division II national championship," says Mayor Bob Stephens.

"I personally don't think I've seen a more exciting game. The Panthers only led for 68 seconds, but the last second is the one that counts. All of Springfield is proud of the Drury Panthers tonight!"
