To start the season the Lindenwood-Belleville Lady Lynx had something to prove after finishing sixth last season at the USCAA Championships with a record of 1-3. So after receiving the bid this year to the tournament the Lady Lynx took an all business approach and knew they could not waste this opportunity.
After defeating the No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 seeds on the first two days of the tournament, the Lady Lynx of Lindenwood-Belleville defeated No. 7 Ave Maria to bring home the 2013 USCAA National Championship Title. It marks the first National Championship for a female sport at Lindenwood – Belleville.
