The Lindenwood athletics department has become one of the most successful collegiate programs in the country. As a way to honor the top individuals and teams that have helped build the program to this level, Lindenwood has announced that it is establishing an Athletics Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame committee, which is led by Director of Athletics John Creer, is currently taking nominations for the 2007 induction class. Nominations can be made in the four categories of student-athlete, coach, meritorious service, or team.
The committee will begin reviewing nominations in May and will announce the inaugural Hall of Fame inductees over the summer. The honorees will then be honored during Homecoming ceremonies on Oct. 19-20.
For more information on the Athletics Hall of Fame, or to nominate a person or team, visit the Hall of Fame website at www.lindenwood.edu/athletics/halloffame.
Lindenwood currently sponsors 38 athletic programs, the majority of which compete in the NAIA and the Heart of America Athletic Conference.
Since 1998-99, Lindenwood has finished in the top-five every year in the NACDA Directors’ Cup, which annually honors the most successful programs in the NAIA. In that span, Lindenwood has won two Directors’ Cups, 21 National Championships and 85 conference titles.
