TCNJ Cruises in First Game with Top Rank

from press releases

WAYNE, Pa. - Coming off of its biggest win of the season, The College of New Jersey women's lacrosse team avoided a letdown against Eastern University as the Lions rolled to an 18-5 victory over the host Eagles on Tuesday.

Prior to the win, the Lions (10-0) moved into the top spot in the latest IWLCA Division III. Tuesday's win sets up TCNJ's next big test as the Lions head to Salisbury University for a showdown with the Sea Gulls on Saturday. Salisbury started the week ranked first, but switched places with the Lions when the new poll was released with only two votes separating the two institutions.

With the loss, Eastern is now an even 5-5 on the year.

Sophomore Alison Jaeger (Hampton, NJ/North Hunterdon) led a balanced Lion attack with four goals, while Rachel Gordon (Cherry Hill, NJ/Cherry Hill West) and Lisa Seldeen (Wayne, NJ/Wayne Valley) each finished with three goals and one assist. Robin Deehan (Morris Plains, NJ/Academy of St. Elizabeth) chipped in with a four-point effort scoring twice and setting up two goals.

Sophomore Mary Waller (Bel Air, MD/C. Milton Wright) garnered the win with four saves.
