It was a tough week for the women’s lacrosse team as it recorded three losses versus Davidson, Navy, and Loyola. In an especially tough game on March 11, the Orange and Blue faced off with Davidson. After outscoring their opponents throughout the first half of the game 9-3, the Bison were shocked after Davidson came roaring back in the second half. The game ended with a score of 11-12, the Bison falling just short of the win. Emily Kookogey ’15 marked four goals and Gretchen Richter ’18 had three on the day for the Orange and the Blue.

In the match against Navy on March 14, the Bison were handed a difficult loss with a score of 21-4. With Richter in the center, the Orange and Blue were able to grab seven draw controls. Kookogey, Cori Thielemann ’15, and Christina Manis ’17 scored the goals for the Bison on the day. Navy was able to capitalize on the 18 turnovers committed by the Bison, and ultimately earned the win.

Facing Loyola Maryland on March 18, the Orange and Blue were unable to rally behind Maddy Molinari ’17’s three goals, and fell 15-7. Goalie Elizabeth Duswalt ’17 was able to make 13 saves in an effort for the Bison, and teammates Sam Rickels ’16, Mary Margaret Kenney ’18, Ally Furbay ’16, and Richter also contributed with goals. After committing 19 turnovers, the Orange and Blue were unable to comeback and Loyola was able to emerge victorious.

The Bison have now dropped to 2-7 on the season, and look to avenge their losses at home in Lewisburg versus Colgate and Lehigh on March 21 and March 25.
