BALTIMORE -- Former Carthage standout Katie Ferris and the University of Massachusetts take on Loyola in an NCAA Division I first-round women's lacrosse matchup today at Ridley Athletic Complex.
Ferris holds the single-season goal records for UMass with 55, set last weekend. She needs four more points to tie the school record for points in a single season. Ferris has 70 points so far.
The UMass women's lacrosse team is a mosaic that keeps adding more pieces.
The 16th-ranked Minutewomen (16-2), who demolished Richmond, 16-12, to capture their third straight Atlantic 10 tournament championship, next hosts Canisius in an NCAA play-in game tomorrow (1 p.m.) at McGuirk Stadium in Amherst.
Last week, junior attack Jesse O'Donnell earned MVP honors of the A-10 tournament after scoring five goals against the Spiders. UMass senior attack Jackie Lyons added a pair of goals and became the school's career scoring leader with 220 points. Freshman attack Katie Ferris chipped in three goals and tied the UMass single-season goals mark of 52.
