March 4, 2014
WASHINGTON – George Washington lacrosse heads to Annapolis, Md., on Wednesday to face its first nationally ranked opponent of the season in No. 20/13 Navy. Action at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium is slated for 4:30 p.m.
GW (3-1) looks to extend its two-game winning streak after defeating Liberty (21-10) and Davidson (8-7) last week. The Colonials out-scored their opponents, 29-17, over the week and held its competition to a .415 shot percentage. GW was led to consecutive victories by reigning Atlantic 10 Player of the Week junior Jamie Bumgardner (6g, 9a, 15pts) and Defensive Player of the Week sophomore Julia Lawson (8gb, 5dc, 5ct).
Bumgardner – who set single-game program records against the Lady Flames with 12 points and six assists – currently leads the conference and the nation with 4.0 assists per game and ranks atop the A-10 and third in NCAA Division I with 16 total assists. She is also tied for fifth in D-I in points per game (6.75), tied for ninth in the country in points (27), and she leads the league in both categories. Juniors Rachel Mia (10g) and Allie Rash (7g, 2a) are both key components to the Colonials’ attack and Mia is tied for third in the A-10 with 5.5 shots per game and fifth with 2.50 goals per game.
Junior defender Jenn Seitz (6gb, 3ct) paces the A-10 with 17 draw controls and she averages 4.25 draws per game. Classmate Mackenzie Jones has made 19 saves in 210 minutes of work between the pipes and owns an 8.86 goals-against average.
Unbeaten Navy (5-0) enters Wednesday’s contest ranked No. 20 by the IWLCA and No. 13 in the Brine Media Poll. Loren Generi (21g, 19a) and Katie Gallagher (9g, 10a) lead Navy’s offense with 40 and 19 points, respectively, while Aimee Gennaro (11g, 6a) has registered 17 points and Jill Coughlin has chipped in 13 goals. Goalkeeper Annie Foky has set aside 12 shots and owns a 5.00 goals-against average in 44 shots faced.
