Lincoln earned his second consecutive All-CAA second team accolade in 2011 following his transfer, after two seasons, from the University of Denver. The 2008 and 2010 USILA All-America honorable mention was tied for the team lead with 29 goals and added 11 assist for 40 points while starting all 16 games.

He also scored four goals against Princeton and tallied three assists against St. John’s and two versus Air Force. Lincoln picked up 21 ground balls on the season including five against Drexel.
Card earned his third consecutive USILA All-America honorable mention accolade as a senior last year. In 2011, he earned his fourth All-CAA award including his third first team honor. Card, who was also named to the 2011 USILA North-South Senior All-Star Game, led the Pride in scoring last year with 29 goals and 17 assists for 46 points while starting all 16 games.
Card, the 2009 CAA Player of the Year, recorded eight multi-goal games and dished out multi-assists in five games in 2011. He concludes his career ranked second in goals (122), fifth in points (182) and 11th in assists (60) on Hofstra career charts. Card, who was also the 2008 CAA Rookie of the Year, recorded a point in 44 consecutive games to close out his career.
