WASHINGTON - BIG EAST women's lacrosse teams begin league play this weekend. No. 8/8 Georgetown starts conference action on Friday, March 22, against Cincinnati and then hosts #20/20 Louisville on Sunday, March 24. The Cincinnati game is scheduled for 4 p.m. and the Louisville game is set for 1 p.m. The Hoyas are 2-1 at home this year.
Georgetown completed a two game road trip last week and recorded a 1-1 record. The Hoyas took on No. 12/10 Johns Hopkins on March 13 and won a 15-8 affair. On March 16 GU lost at No. 3/3 North Carolina. At JHU Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor), a current selection to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll, set a new career high with five goals and also contributed an assist. At UNC the Hoyas took a 1-0 lead and had to mount a second half comeback to close the Tar Heel margin to 11-10 but ultimately lost 17-11 Junior Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation) set a new career high by netting three goals.
The Hoyas rank second in the BIG EAST for goals per game, averaging 13 per contest. Tarzian is GU's goal leader with 17 and ranks 10th in the conference (2.43 gpg). She also is sixth for points per game (3.71 ppg). Second in goals for GU is Freedman with 16 and Jackson places third with 10. Freedman has two game winning goals and had converted 6-of-9 free position shots.
Junior goalkeeper Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) is climbing up the all-time saves chart, sitting at ninth with 203 career saves. She is only the ninth Hoya to ever crack the 200 saves mark. Black recorded a season high with nine saves at UNC. She has 42 saves and faced 151 shots. Black has combined with her starting defenders, Ashley Hunter (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes), MJ Coyle (Kensington, Md./Holy Child) and Casey McGowan (West Islip, N.Y./West Islip) to limit opponents to 10.29 goals per game.
Controlling the draw for Georgetown has been a trio of Hoyas, Freedman, Thomas and Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep). Freedman has 19 draw controls while Bozel has 17 and Thomas 12. The Hoyas have been ahead in draw controls in 5-of-7 contests.
