The Gettysburg College women's lacrosse team continued to ride on the wings of destiny this spring by blowing out Trinity (Conn.) College 17-3 in the NCAA Division III Tournament Regional Championship Sunday afternoon and clinching a spot in next weekend's national championships hosted at the Bullets' very own Clark Field.
Seniors Hollis Stahl and Lauren Woodman led Gettysburg's scoring barrage with four goals and sophomore Hannah Church chalked up a career-high seven points on three goals and four assists. Senior goalie Kristen Krammer polished off an outstanding weekend in the cage with eight saves.
Gettysburg (18-3) advances to its fourth semifinal in five seasons and joins a familiar crew as Hamilton College (20-0), Franklin & Marshall College (16-3), and Salisbury University (19-1) also breezed by their opponents on Sunday. Those four teams made up the semifinals of the 2009 women's lacrosse championships, with Franklin & Marshall taking the title. It will be rematches on both sides of the bracket, as the Diplomats meet the Continentals at 11 a.m. and the Bullets face the Sea Gulls at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 22. The two winners will square off for the Division III title on Sunday at noon in a game televised by CBS Sports.
More information and details about the championships are available.
