GRR: Lindenwood Women
Lindenwood beat Central Washington and BYU beat Grand Canyon in the latest action in D1 Elite Women.
With the win, Lindenwood joins CWU and Life with two wins, but Lindenwood has no losses and has defeated both of those other two-win teams. BYU improved to 1-1.
The D1 Elite women's slate of games this past weekend resulted in two shutouts.
For Central Washington, the Wildcats defeated Grand Canyon 79-0 in Phoenix. Meanwhile, defending champions Lindenwood looked very impressive in a 27-0 defeat of longtime rivals Life University at Lindenwood's campus.
The battle of the two major national champions ended up in Lindenwood's favor Saturday but it was certainly a close-run thing.
In a game that carried all the drama that it deserved, Lindenwood University emerged 16-15 victors over Life in the 2022 Women's D1 Elite final.
Held during the CRAA Fall Classic at the Matthews Sportsplex near Charlotte, NC, the final once again produced Lindenwood as the champions, but it was a close-run thing.
The seeding for this fall's D1 Elite will be based on the regular season and we have a better idea of where everything will shake out.
Not every one of the four teams will play the other three. Penn State doesn't play Lindenwood but have already played the other two; meanwhile Lindenwood, Life, and Central Washington all do play each other and Lindenwood plays Life twice.
