WACO, Texas (KWTX) President Donald Trump tweeted his congratulations to Baylor’s Lady Bears Monday evening.

The team returned to Waco earlier Monday with the championship trophy from the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament after defeating Notre Dame 82-81 in a game that wasn’t decided until the finals seconds.

“Congratulations to the Baylor Lady Bears on their amazing win last night against Notre Dame to become the 2019 NCAA Women’s Basketball National Champions!,” the president wrote in the tweet.

The Lady Bears have now won national championships under three different presidents.

They brought home their first in 2005 when George W. Bush occupied the Oval Office and their second in 2012 when Barack Obama was president.
