Harvard pulled off a major championship double, beating Lindenwood in the final of the CRAA Women's Premier 7s to bookend their fall 2023 NIRA D1 title.

Playing at Aveva Stadium in Houston, Harvard topped the 10-team field that included NIRA (NCAA Varsity) teams plus D1 Elite programs Lindenwood, Life, and Penn State.

In a wild barnburner of a D1 Elite final, Life University somehow got by Lindenwood to win their first-ever Women's D1 Elite Championship.

These two teams had been in the final against each other five previous times—every final since the 2017-18 season (2020 was COVID-canceled), and Lindenwood has prevailed each time.

The history of the D1 Elite finals is one of Lindenwood beating Life University.

While there was no final held in the 2019-2020 season due to COVID, from the 2017-18 season through the 2022-23 season these teams have met every year in the D1 Elite championship game. Lindenwood has won every single time.

It will be Life vs Lindenwood in the Women's D1 Elite collegiate final yet again.

Life beat Central Washington 28-3. It took a while for the Running Eagles to get their pace up, It wasn't until past the midway point of the first half that Life took the lead—an early CWU penalty goal put the Wildcats ahead.
