SD Lagunak women's team represents SD Lagunak in women's football. It currently plays in Primera División, the country's top league.[1] Founded in 1990, it was the first women's football team in Navarre. It has been more successful than its male counterpart, having played seven years in top flight and reached the national cup final three times as of 2011.


The first success of SD Lagunak was reaching the 1998 Copa de la Reina's final after beating defending champion RCD Espanyol in semifinals. They lost 4-0 to Atlético Málaga, who also won the league that year. Two years later they again reached the final, but were beaten by Levante UD.

When the Spanish league was unified in 2001 Lagunak started in Primera Nacional, the second category. It reached the Superliga in 2003 after topping its group and beating FC Barcelona and Atlético Jiennense in the promotion play-offs.[2]

In 2006 it qualified for the Copa de la Reina for the first time in the Superliga era following Estudiantes Huelva's relegation. Lagunak defeated CF Puebla and Rayo Vallecano to reach its third final. This time the result was a tie (2-2), but Lagunak lost in the penalty shootout. However, in the 2006–07 season, Lagunak ended second to last and was relegated. The next year Lagunak won the Group A and beat Atlético Málaga and CD Arguineguín to regain its spot in the premier category.

For the next three seasons Lagunak avoided relegation. In 2011 it qualified for the Copa de la Reina, where they were defeated by Athletic Bilbao by an 11-1 aggregate.
