The women’s Lacrosse team started the season off with a statement to put in the history books. Playing against Felician University on Feb 19, junior goalie Taylor Young nearly broke the record for saves in a single game with a 25-save effort. The record is 26 saves, held by Katie Laird. Young’s goaltending moved her into second all-time for saves. Third place is held by Paxton Boyers with record of 24 saves.
“Going into the game I set high standards for myself and my teammates who worked hard and pushed me as well as we kept the pace the entire game,” Young said.
Young faced 59 shots in the 17-9 loss. Although the Battlers fell short to Felician, Young was ecstatic about breaking Boyer’s mark of 24 saves.
“I want to thank my teammates, parents, and coaches for pushing me to become a better player every day,” Young said.
The women’s team are back at it again Thursday at 4 p.m. for their home opener for the season.
