The Brandeis Athletics 2012-13 season started with one UAA soccer title followed by a pair of deep runs into the NCAA tournament in the fall; saw the revival of a dormant program and a historic road trip in the winter; and concluded with a record-breaking burner on the basepaths and a tremendous doubles tandem in the spring. In one of the most decorated campaigns in recent memory, the Judges produced six All-Americans during the year. To honor the end of the 2012-13 campaign, here are 13 top moments from the past academic year.
