Lacrosse Set to Host Davidson for Senior Day

April 24, 2018

OPENING DRAW: The George Washington lacrosse team will wrap up its season on Saturday when it hosts Davidson at 12:45 p.m. for Senior Day at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.

SENIOR SALUTE: Prior to Saturday’s contest, the Colonials will honor seniors Jocelyn Donohue, Camaryn Kerns, Brooke Sands, and Adele Wise in a Senior Day ceremony.

RELAXIN' AT THE VERN: Saturday’s game will feature a free food and drinks for the first 200 fans in attendance.

LAST TIME OUT: In their last road contest of the regular season, the Colonials (9-7, 2-6 A-10) fell to Duquesne, 20-13, on Sunday afternoon at Rooney Field. Seven different Colonials found the back of the net in Pittsburgh, with Donohue pacing the squad with four goals and Kerns following closely behind with her seventh hat trick of the season.

SAVING THE DAY: Freshman keeper Jenna Oler hit a pair of career milestones over the weekend. Against Saint Joseph’s, Oler made a program-record 25 saves between the pipes. The Columbia, Maryland, native surpassed Lisa Pagano, who previously held the single-game saves record, dating back to April 2002 when she stopped 19 shots against Howard. On Sunday at Duquesne, Oler broke another GW record after making 12 saves in the crease to total 212 saves on the season, a mark that ranks first on GW’s single-season saves list. The freshman topped Emily Fortunato, the previous record holder, who stopped 162 shots in 2004.

HITTING 100: Donohue’s first goal of the game against Saint Joseph’s on Friday marked the 100th goal of her career. The Amherst, New Hampshire, native ranks seventh on GW’s career goals list. The senior co-captain paces the team with 46 points (43g, 3a) and has registered multiple goals in 15 of 16 games. Donohue also hit the 100-point milestone earlier this season after netting her first of four goals against St. Bonaventure on March 31.

ABOUT DAVIDSON: Six different Wildcats (9-7, 4-4 A-10) scored multiple goals as Davidson cruised on the road to a 15-2 victory against St. Bonaventure on Sunday afternoon. Davidson controlled possession the majority of the game, leading in shots (37-12), ground balls (25-15), and draw controls (16-3).
