Women's Field Hockey

Lindenwood field hockey competes as an NCAA Division II independent program against mostly NCAA Division II and Division III opponents, as well as Division I competition, including in-state programs at Missouri State and St. Louis University. The Lady Lions have posted a record of 30-31 over the past five seasons. After dismal seasons in 2004 and 2006, the team has recorded plus .500 records 2007-2009. In 2010 the LU athletics department identified field hockey as one of the sports moving to NCAA Division II, placing field hockey in the same division as rival Bellarmine University. LU field hockey will be eligible for NCAA post season play in 2013; it would be the first season in program history that LU could compete for a championship due to the NAIA not sponsoring a championship for field hockey.

Famous quotes containing the words women and/or field:

    Somehow we have been taught to believe that the experiences of girls and women are not important in the study and understanding of human behavior. If we know men, then we know all of humankind. These prevalent cultural attitudes totally deny the uniqueness of the female experience, limiting the development of girls and women and depriving a needy world of the gifts, talents, and resources our daughters have to offer.
    Jeanne Elium (20th century)

    My prime of youth is but a frost of cares,
    My feast of joy is but a dish of pain,
    My crop of corn is but a field of tares,
    And all my good is but vain hope of gain:
    The day is past, and yet I saw no sun,
    And now I live, and now my life is done.
    Chidiock Tichborne (1558–1586)
