WEST MONROE, LA - Sabrina Bice did it again.
Bice captured her second straight USA Cycling BMX individual national championship on Sunday at the 2017 championships. She becomes the 18th individual national champion from the Lindsey Wilson cycling program.
Lindsey Wilson cycling finished second in the team competition, behind national champion Marian (IN).
Bice was dominant in the two-day event. She finished first in the finals on Saturday and Sunday -- winning a total of eight races over the two days. She scored the most points on the women's side during the championship to claim the individual national title.
"Sabrina's performance this weekend was nothing short of domination," Lindsey Wilson cycling coach Charles Mooney said. "She experienced a little adversity on Sunday but took it one race at a time and was able to reach her goal of becoming a two-time national champion."
Bice joins Joe Haley as the only Lindsey Wilson cyclists to capture two individual national titles. Haley captured the 2000 dual slalom title and the 2001 downhill championship.
During Saturday's races, Bice was joined by Elida Beeman (third), Adrian Sanders (sixth) and Heather Collman (seventh) in the women's top-eight.
In the men's races on Saturday, a pair of Blue Raiders recorded top-eight finishes. Ryan Denty and Corey Ross finished seventh and eighth, respectively.
During today's races, Bice led a trio of Blue Raider women in the top eight. Bice finished first while Beeman posted a fourth and Sanders a sixth-place finish. Beeman completed the championship in fourth overall.
Dustin Hammond led the Blue Raider men on Sunday with a fourth-place finish. Ross ended in sixth during the final day's race.
"For the most part BMX racing is an individual sport but Collegiate BMX brings in the team aspect," Mooney said. "It took the entire team to accomplish our goals this weekend. When we started the academic year I had 14 individual student-athletes and by the end of the season we came together as a team.
"I am really proud of this team for their leadership and effort on and off the track," Mooney added. "The weekend was a success."
