GRR: Lindenwood Women
The D1A playoffs start this weekend with the four teams in that division playing semifinals Saturday and the final on CRAA Finals Weekend on April 30.
Lindenwood faces Penn State in St. Charles, Mo. Lindenwood is 11-0 and has logged impressive wins over women's clubs Life West, Chicago North Shore, Chicago Lions, Colorado Gray Wolves, and the St. Louis Sabres.
Lindenwood University women's Head Coach Billy Nicholas has been hit hard by the COVID-19 virus.
Lindenwood University won the 2021 CRC women's bracket with a tense, physical 10-7 win over Life University.
Lindenwood and Life look the business in the Women's CRC Saturday, with both teams winning comfortably as they rolled through the first day of competition.
Life shut out Allegheny 45-0 and Iowa State 46-0 to make it to the semifinals. Life was very physical in contact and it was often their defense that produced their scoring opportunities.
The Women's CRC in New Orleans may well be a foregone conclusion in terms of who makes the final, but we could have a dark horse or two.
Lindenwood's 15s team has been dominant this season, and while that doesn't necessarily mean the Lions will roll through a 7s tournament, history tells us that Lindenwood, paced by MA Sorensen Award-winner Richelle Stephens, will be fully prepared.
