Wisconsin-Whitewater coach Lance Leipold has reached 100 wins faster than any other coach in NCAA history.

With the Warhawks' 52-3 win against Wisconsin-Eau Claire on Saturday, Leipold improved to 100-6 as a head coach. Leipold has guided the Warhawks to five Division III national championships since taking over as the team's coach in 2007.

The previous mark was set by Hall of Fame coach Gil Dobie, who reached 100 wins in 108 games while at Cornell in 1921.

"It's something that will sink in probably further down the road," Leipold told the school's official athletics website. "I'm very fortunate for the opportunity to be the head coach at UW-Whitewater. We have players that have played hard and bought into the philosophy, and we have a great group of assistant coaches who we've been able to retain. They've done an outstanding job."

Leipold's 100-6 record (.943 winning percentage) leads all active NCAA Division II and III coaches, according to the school's athletics website. Leipold also boasts a playoff record of 29-1 (.967 winning percentage).
