Lindenwood made the jump from the MCLA to NCAA D2 and 2012 will be their first season under the NCAA banner. It will also be their first year rocking these killer white and gold Gait Recon gloves. The gloves aren’t Gait’s newest model, but from what we hear they are a pretty protective glove that performs well. And that’s what matters most, right?
Lindenwood will take on Lees-McRae, Shorter twice, Dominican U. twice, Notre Dame de Namur twice, Adelphi, Colorado Mesa U. twice, Adams State twice, Wheeling Jesuit, Belmont Abbey and Pfeiffer. Teams are taking off in NCAA D2, and while many of these guys are relative newcomers, Lindenwood has a tall task ahead of them. Thankfully, they’ve had a strong MCLA team there for years, so the potential for depth and conversion players is ripe, especially in this first year.
The gloves were posted on the school’s women’s Facebook page, but also the assistant coach. So we’re pretty sure they are the men’s gloves. But they could be the women’s goalie gloves. Or both. Either way, they’re fresh.
