Women's lax struggles

By Thomas Walter


On the road once again, the women’s lacrosse team dropped its third straight contest to Duquesne last weekend 18-4. 

The Dukes were the more experienced and talented team, with Clare Hurley, Caitlin Prince and Amanda Kidder each scoring hat tricks.

One of the few positives for the Bison was Emily Kookogey ’15, who emerged as a strong offensive presence in the fourth game of the young season. She netted two goals, which were the first of her career. Caroline O’Neill ’15, the starting goalie for the Orange and Blue, also posted a career-high 13 saves on the day.

Despite the rough start to the season, the Bison realize there is still much time to improve, especially given the age of the team.

“We have a young team and we will learn something and grow and improve from every game. It is always hard losing big but one important characteristic of our team is that we never give up,” defender/ midfielder Andrea Feldman ’14 said. “We need to take one aspect of the game at a time and improve on that. We are all looking forward to proving ourselves in the games to come!”

The Bison travel to face Manhattan this weekend in Riverdale, N.Y.
