Women’s lacrosse team begins nine-game road trip

The Women’s Lacrosse team dropped its fourth straight match after beginning a nine-game road trip starting out east with a match against Georgian Court in Lakewood, New Jersey. The Wildcats fell by a score of 15-1 to the Lions (1-6). Sophomore Shelby Klotz had the lone goal for the Wildcats at 8:37 in the second half.

Two days after, the Wildcats dropped their fourth straight contest by a score of 16-9. Freshman Graison Ringlever scored six of the nine Wildcat goals in the loss to the Shepherd University Rams (1-6). Ringlever put the ‘Cats on the board at 15:57 of the first half after the Rams scored the first five goals of the contest.

Although the Rams scored again less than three minutes later, the Wildcats weren’t going down without a fight when senior Blair Osgood tallied the next two goals followed by Ringlever’s second of the game to pull the Wildcats within two. Ringlever’s sixth put the Wildcats back within four but the Rams ended up pulling away at the end scoring three unanswered goals.

The Wildcats will continue the road trip when they take on Wheeling Jesuit University (2-5) in Wheeling, West Virginia on Saturday. From there the team will travel to South Euclid, Ohio to face the Falcons (1-1) of Notre Dame College.
