LWC Wins in competition.

LWC Wins in competition. 15

16 Bragging RIGHTS On June 1, the Blue Raiders received the Mid-South Conference President’s Cup at the conference’s summer meeting in Bowling Green, Ky. It was the sixth overall time LWC has won the MSC President’s Cup, which is presented to the season’s overall best program. Then 13 days later, LWC athletics was crowned as the top program in the NAIA when the Blue Raiders captured the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Learfield Directors’ Cup. It was the first time the Blue Raiders won the Directors’ Cup, and it was only the sixth time in the 21-year history of the Directors’ Cup that an NAIA program has won it. “It goes without saying that these two awards were the result of a true team effort,” said LWC Athletic Director Willis Pooler, who has led Blue Raiders athletics since the 2003-04 school year. “Lindsey Wilson has the best intercollegiate sports program in the NAIA because we have the best coaches in the NAIA, the best facilities in the country, and we are blessed with an incredibly supportive administration. “But, at the end of the day, the reason Lindsey Wilson athletics stands out across the nation is because of the more than 700 young men and women who are the student-athletes on over two dozen teams. They are the ones who put in the time and dedicated themselves to creating one of the nation’s elite intercollegiate programs.” LWC WINS LEARFIELD DIRECTORS’ CUP Lindsey Wilson is the sixth NAIA institution to win the Learfield Cup. “ ...we want them to excel in their chosen profession, be responsible family members and leaders in their communities. To me, that’s the true mark of a national championship intercollegiate athletic program.” Willis Pooler LWC Athletics Director Before the 2015-16 season, LWC had finished second twice (in 2014-15 and in ’12-13) and third twice (’13-14, ’05-06) in the Directors’ Cup. But what made winning the Directors’ Cup even more impressive in ’15-16 was that LWC did it without winning a team NAIA national championship. That’s a testament to Pooler’s leadership. Since Pooler was named athletic director of his alma mater in 2003, the number of LWC student-athletes has increased more than 70 percent, which included bringing back a 75- year-old dormant football program in 2010 and adding men’s wrestling, and men’s and women’s swimming. “It’s always been extremely important to me that Lindsey Wilson have a strong comprehensive intercollegiate athletics program,” Pooler said. “Everyone knows Lindsey Wilson because of the 13 combined NAIA national titles our men’s and women’s soccer teams have won. And Lindsey Wilson has a rich basketball history that dates back to the 1930s. But over the last decade, people know about the Blue Raiders because we are strong in every sport. Throughout the year, all of our student-athletes compete for conference and national titles, and that is a testament to our outstanding coaches.” Although no Blue Raider team won an NAIA national title, the Blue Raider cycling program – which is not a sanctioned NAIA sport – had another banner season.
