Rock lacrosse team sets single season win record

The Slippery Rock University lacrosse team established a new single season win record Saturday when they beat Seaton Hill 14-13. The team ended the year with a 12-5 record,

During the Senior Day game, The Rock tied the game with 23 seconds left and scored the game-winner with six seconds on the clock.

The win gave the SRU team the record breaker for wins in a single season set in 1983 and tied last year.

Saturday's game was also filled with individual milestones:

  • Laubach broke the single game school record with 15 draw controls, increased her single season record to 104, and broke her career record with 153, passing the previous record of 151.

  • Quinn became the second player in school history to record 150 career goals, joining all-time, record-holder Halls, who finished her career with 215 goals and 263 points.

The 2012 senior class, which helped lead the program from an 0-17 season the year before they arrived, leaves with their names littered throughout the record book:

Halls and Quinn rank first or second in nearly every scoring category; Emma VanDenburg, a physical education major from Rockport, N.Y., has the career record for assists and ranks third in scoring; Katie Roof, an environmental management graduate student, from Port Republic, Md., is the sixth player in school history to record at least 100 points; and Samantha Eddy, a business major from Selden, N.Y., ranks in the top-10 in at least five statistical categories.
