The Mean Green finished the season with a 13-4-2 record and lost one match in conference play, finishing 8-1-1 in the team’s last year in the Sun Belt. UNT moves to Conference USA in 2013-14.

This is the team's seventh championship in UNT soccer history. "Winning championships never gets old," observed Head Coach John Hedlund.
