A Look Back At 2016

2016 MIC Champions

2016 USA Gymnastics Women's Collegiate National Champions

Lindenwood won the 2016 USA Gymnastics National Championships on their home court. The Lady Lions won in thrilling fashion, winning by 0.075.

Lindenwood's Andavea Alexander recorded a 9.975 on the floor in the USA Gymnastics Team Semifinals, the highest score in any event in program history. Alexander was given one 10.0, also the first time a Lady Lion had received a perfect score from one judge.

Lindenwood's inaugural gymnastics class finished their final year of eligibility. The eight gymnasts built the foundation for future teams, and also graduated with two MIC Championship rings and two USAG national title rings.
