WINTER PARK, Fla. (March 3, 2024) – The seventh-ranked Rollins women’s lacrosse team survived a slugfest with visiting Southern New Hampshire on Friday, holding on for a 25-20 win. The 25 goals are tied for the second-most in a game in program history. The Tars are now 7-1 on the season, while the Penmen drop to 1-1.

Jorie Alf has a game-high six points on five goals and an assist, while Lauren Noonan tallied four goals and an assist. Sydney Nickel tallied three goals and Aleksa Allen has two goals, an assist, and two caused turnovers. Holyn Trautwein led all players with 19 draw controls, and Anya Studebaker (6-1) got the win, saving nine of the 29 shots she faced in 60 minutes of play.
