Hoyas Hold On Against Marquette on Senior Day
The Georgetown University women’s lacrosse team held on to defeat the Marquette University Golden Eagles (6-10, 3-3 BIG EAST), 13-12, Saturday afternoon at Cooper Field. With the tight victory, the Hoyas improve to 4-2 in BIG EAST play and 6-9 overall.

Sophomore attacker Taylor Gebhardt (Baldwinsville, N.Y./C.W. Baker) led the way with five goals, while senior attacker Kate Snouffer (Baltimore, Md./Bryn Mawr School) and sophomore midfielder Francesca Whitehurst (Baltimore, Md./Roland Park Country School) both tallied hat tricks. Snouffer also added two assists and Whitehurst managed one. In total, 10 Hoyas scored a point in the victory.

On defense, senior goalkeeper Maddy Fisher (Ellicott City, Md./Mount Hebron) was awarded the victory with eight saves to her credit. Freshman midfielder Natalie Lynch (Smithtown, N.Y./Smithtown West) posted three caused turnovers in the win.

Whitehurst and Gebhardt lead the team in scoring with 39 points apiece. Whitehurst has 24 goals and a squad-high 15 assists as well as a team-leading 53 draw controls. Gebhardt has posted a team-high 32 goals and seven assists after tallying a career-best five goals in the Cincy win. Sophomore attacker Morgan Ryan (Maplewood, N.J./Oak Knoll School) has tallied 25 goals and nine assists for 34 points to round out the top three. There are nine Hoyas currently registering double figures in points.


 

 

On defense, Fisher has 85 saves to her credit, playing a majority of the minutes in goal. Senior defender Jenny Schwalje (Setauket, N.Y./St. Anthony’s) has forced a team-best 18 caused turnovers.

Marquette is coming off of a tough 17-14 loss at UConn on Wednesday. Senior attacker Julianna Shearer became the first Golden Eagle to register 100 career goals as she notched a season-high seven points, including a game-high five goals in the loss.

The Hoyas are 4-0 all-time against the Golden Eagles and 2-0 on the road. Last year, GU won, 13-12, at Cooper Field as Gebhardt and Whitehurst posted three goals and an assist each. The year prior in Milwaukee, the Blue & Gray came away with the 8-7 victory.

The BIG EAST Championship picture is coming into focus. A Temple win locks up postseason berths for the Owls, Florida and either Georgetown or Denver, with just one slot remaining up for grabs. Should GU and Denver (vs. Villanova) wins accompany a Temple win on Saturday, the postseason field would be solidified with the Hoyas, Pioneers, Owls and Gators, though seeding would not yet be determined.

The opening draw at Marquette University on Saturday is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET. Live stats and a webcast will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
