he women’s lacrosse team ended the 2012 season with a 10-7 record and placed fifth in the East Coast Conference.
The team, in its third season, has progressed from their last season record of 9-8. They began the season with a new coach and a more experienced group.
The Lady Knights wrapped-up their regular-season play on a western road trip to ECC rivals Lake Erie College on Saturday and Seton Hill University on Sunday.
On Saturday morning, the Lady Knights won their game against Lake Erie, 19-10. Five players on the team scored at least three goals and junior Heather Rosen led the team with eight. Both sophomore Taylor Sommers and freshman Shannon Doody earned the team four goals each. Junior midfielder Sarah Boucher scored three goals and one assist. Junior Kayleen Keity also scored a hat-trick for Saturday’s win.
On Sunday morning, the Lady Knights traveled to Greensburg, Pennsylvania to play against Seton Hill. The Knights lost, 12-6. By the first half of the game, only junior Melissa Montreuil scored one goal, unassisted.
Rosen received player of the week honors on April 30 with a pair of 10-point games and four-plus goals in all three outings. This resulted in a 2-1 week for the Lady Knights. Rosen scored six goals and four assists against St. Thomas Aquinas April 26, adding to senior Meghan Monahan’s two goals and two assists.
Midfielder Monahan, along with senior Nicole Foy were honored that day before the St. Thomas Aquinas match for their career accomplishments, and for helping build the program in just its third year of existence. Monahan ranked fourth in goals with 29 goals this season, scoring an overall 47 points for the Lady Knights.
The ECC does not have a conference playoff for women’s lacrosse and only the top three teams of the conference advance to the NCAA tournament.
Similar to last season, C.W. Post and Dowling College are at the top of the standings. Dowling took the title and participated in the NCAA Tournament last season.
