Lindenwood Win Women's 7s Championship

Lindenwood have capped off an excellent season with the College 7s National Championship. The Lions were extremely impressive over the weekend where they were rarely challenged. They gave up 10 total points in pool play while scoring 110. In the knockout rounds that simply continued as they beat some very good teams. In the end it came down to them and rivals Life with the Lions winning 31-12. To reach the final Lindenwood blanked Michigan 17-0 in the quarterfinals and then beat a very good Central Washington team 21-0 in the semi-finals.

Life's path to the finals almost didn't happen as they met UC-Davis in the quarterfinals. The Aggies had only qualified for the quarterfinals as one of the top third place teams but they put a scare into the Running Eagles with Life only winning 19-17. Life then beat Dartmouth 33-10 in the semi-finals.
To make the semi-finals Central Washington beat Army 17-12 and Dartmouth beat Penn State 20-14. Army would go on to win the Plate by beating Penn State 21-17. Davenport won the Shield.
