Roller Hockey – National Championships (2002,2003,2004,2005,2006,2007,2008, 2010, 2013)
The year was 2002 and the Lindenwood Roller hockey program was in its third year and began one of the best and longest national title runs in the country. During the 2001-2002 regular season the Lions were 25-2. Then the Lions defeated the Michigan State Spartans in the national championship game.
The championship was the first for the program and laid the groundwork for one of the most successful programs in the country. Lindenwood went undefeated in 2003 and continued its winning run the next five years, winning the national championship from 2004 to 2008. With a one-year break, they came back in 2010 and 2013 to make it nine national titles!
Shotgun Sports – National Championships (2004,2005,2006,2007,2008,2009,2010,2011,2012,2013)
In the history of collegiate sports, only a handful of teams have won 10 consecutive national championships – at any level. Lindenwood shotgun sports is an esteemed member of that list.
Lindenwood shotgun sports compete in American trap, American skeet, Olympic trap, international skeet, and sporting clays.
