Around the MIAA
The Adrian College women’s lacrosse team suffered two road losses in conference play last week to drop to 1-3 in the MIAA. The Bulldogs fell to Albion 14-3 on Tuesday before losing at Hope 11-7 on Saturday. Senior Annie Rice continued to lead AC’s offense, finishing the week with five points from the two games.
In two consecutive games, women's lacrosse's junior goalie Allie Ray (Port Jefferson Station, N.Y.) became the program's all-time leader in saves and tied the program's single-game save record. Ray made 17 stops in a loss at Calvin on Tuesday to break Stephanie Herman's record of 467, then saved 26 shots against Kalamazoo on Saturday, tying the single-game record also held by Herman.
The Knights defeated Alma 21-1 on Tuesday (April 2) and fell to Albion on Saturday (April 6) in tough battle of 11-10.
The Hornets split their games at Hope and Alma this week. In the 15-7 loss to Hope, Rachel Madar found the back of the net three times while Marianna Olson and Rose Bogard each scored twice. In the 19-8 win over Alma, Madar tied the school record with nine goals. Senior Amanda Moss added five goals in the win. Madar is now second in the MIAA in goals scored (41) and draw controls (93). The Hornets play host to Saint Mary's on Wednesday before travelling to Calvin on Saturday.
The Olivet College women's lacrosse team fell to Saint Mary's, 24-0, in its only game last week.
The Belles earned conference wins over both Olivet and Trine to move to 3-0 in MIAA contests this spring before falling in a non-conference tilt against the University of Chicago. Erin Doyle surpassed the 200-point plateau as the sophomore notched 19 goals and 6 assists on the week. Kate Kelly had 32 draw controls - more than the Belles' opponents combined - while posting nine goals and seven assists. Rachael Leonard became the third player in program history to surpass 200 career ground balls as the senior collected five against Chicago on Sunday. Emily Kraker saved 53.1 percent of the shots on goal faced.
In their lone contest of the week the Thunder faced off against Saint Mary’s. Despite a strong second half in which the Thunder outscored the Belles 5-3, Trine came up short in the match falling 16-7.
