Carrier Sets NCAA Consecutive Goals Record

from staff reports

St. Mary's senior midfielder Lauren Carrier (Crownsville, Md./Old Mill) set the NCAA Division III women's lacrosse record for consecutive games with at least one goal Thursday night as the Seahawks notched a 17-10 non-conference victory over Washington (Md.) College at Lawrence E. Knight Stadium on the grounds of Broadneck High School.

The new NCAA mark is 46 consecutive games with at least one goal as Carrier surpassed the old mark of 45 set by Liz Baumbach of the University of Scranton from March 28, 2001 to May 10, 2003.  Carrier started the streak as a freshman on April 15, 2006 with one goal and one assist in a 10-9 loss to the University of Mary Washington.

The contest's ninth goal gave Carrier the NCAA record as she took a feed from Branch at 5:28 to give the Seahawks a 6-3 halftime lead.

In 58 career games, Carrier has 193 goals, 51 assists for 244 points.  She has moved into fourth place on the CAC career goals list and is closing in on the CAC career points list (Mary Washington's Bridget Geiman is currently sixth in career points with 269).  Carrier is a three-time All-CAC player (2x first team and second team in 2006) and 2008 All-American.

Carrier is also a two-time first team All-CAC selection in women's soccer, including 2008 CAC Player of the Year.
