WASHINGTON – The George Washington lacrosse team travels to Emmitsburg, Md., on Wednesday to face Mount St. Mary’s at the Waldron Family Stadium at 4 p.m.
The contest marks the first time this season the Colonials (4-2) will compete outside of Washington, D.C., as their season-opener at district foe Howard was their lone road match-up in their first six games.
The Buff and Blue are riding a three-game winning streak and are coming off an 11-9 win over Holy Cross on Thursday in the first meeting between the two programs. Senior Nicole Lacey led GW with a team-high four goals while junior Jordy Bathras added three goals an assist. Senior goalkeeper Jess Hicks matched her season-high with 10 stops on the afternoon.
As a squad GW is third in the Atlantic 10 and tied for 10thin all of NCAA Division I with 10.83 caused turnovers per game. Sophomore Jamie Bumgardner leads the league and is tied for 15th in Division I with 13 assists on the year, and Lacey sits second in the A-10 and is tied for 23rd in the country with 4.33 draw controls per game.
Five Colonials players have tallied double-digit points on the season, led by Bumgardner (5 g, 13 a) and Lacey (14 g, 2 a) with 18 and 16 points, respectively. Bathras (11 g, 1 a) has tallied 12 points, followed by sophomore Rachel Mia (11 g, 0 a) with 11 points and freshman Olivia Boudreau (7 g, 3 a) with 10.
Mount St. Mary’s (1-5) is coming off a 16-7 loss at Villanova on Saturday in which six different players scored for the Mount, paced by sophomore Erin Seipp with two goals. Junior Lindsay Diaz (10 g, 2 a) leads the squad with team-high 12 points on the year, while Mount St. Mary’s goalkeepers Sarah Jane Leder and Steph Rurkowski combined for the only shutout in the Northeast Conference so far this season against Delaware State. Leder has started all six games for the Mount between the pipes and has stopped a NEC-best 47 shots.
The Colonials lead the all-time series with the Mount, 8-3, and have come away victorious in the past two meetings. Last season GW downed Mount St. Mary’s, 16-8, at home.
