1999 Season
Lindsay Eddleman capped one of the greatest careers in Nebraska history by leaving as the school's all-time leading scorer with 127 poinots on 50 goals and 27 assists. Eddleman's 50 goals ranked second in the NU record book, while her 27 assists ranked third.

Her 88 games started ranked second and her 88 games played ranked third in Nebraska history.

With a pair of two-goal games against Oral Roberts and Portland, Eddleman pushed her career total to 10 multiple-goal games.

1998 Season
Eddleman earned first-team All-Big 12 honors for the third consecutive season after ranking second among the Huskers and seventh in the league with 27 points on 11 goals and five assists. Eddleman's season got off to a slow start after breaking the fifth metatarsal in her left foot on July 17, while playing for the Denver Diamonds. She had a screw inserted into her foot on July 21, which forced her to miss the first start of her Husker career in the season opener against Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

She returned to the starting lineup in Nebraska's second game, a 4-1 win over No. 8 Clemson, but the injury kept her out of the scoring column until the Huskers' seventh game, an 11-0 rout of Loyola-Chicago. She scored all 11 of her goals in NU's final 16 games, including two-goal performances against Loyola-Chicago, Missouri (regular season) and Texas A&M in the NCAA Tournament.

Eddleman earned a spot on the Big 12 All-Tournament team by scoring the Huskers' first goal in a 3-2 triple-overtime win over Texas A&M, but she received a red card in the 103rd minute and was forced to sit out Nebraska's 4-0 win over Missouri in the Big 12 title game. She enjoyed her best game of the season with five points on two goals and a game-winning assist against the Aggies in the NCAA Tournament, which helped her earn third-team All-Central Region honors.

Following a spectacular freshman season, Eddleman finished her sophomore campaign as the Huskers' third-leading scorer with 26 points on 12 goals and two assists. She earned first-team All-Big 12 honors and third-team All-Central Region accolades.

Her best performance came at No. 4 Duke when she recorded the second hat trick of her career with three goals to lead Nebraska to a 5-0 win. She added two goals in the Huskers' 5-1 sin over No. 15 Michigan in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. She scored four game-winning goals on the year.

1996 Season
Eddleman produced Nebraska single-season freshman records of 42 points and 17 goals, while helping the Huskers to a 23-1-0 record. She was Nebraska's second-leading scorer with 42 points and earned second-team All-America honors and first-team freshman All-America accolades.

She was a first-team All-Big 12 and first-team All-Central Region pick. She scored four game-winning goals, including the Huskers' only goal at the 117:47 mark against Texas A&M in the Big 12 championship game. She set the NU record for points in a half, scoring seven points on three goals and an assist in the first half of a 10-2 win over Colorado.
