Springfield, Ohio – The DePauw women’s lacrosse squad capped its inaugural season with a 22-3 North Coast Athletic Conference loss at the hands of Wittenberg on Monday, April 29, on Edwards-Maurer Field in Springfield, Ohio.

The triumvirate of Mary White, Natalie Swiler and Jamie Powell each scored goals in the contest and Carey Kunz added an assist.
Wittenberg’s Beth Hubbard and Logan Warye each registered four goals in the game, game-highs for both teams. Alie Marousek and Kellen Morrissey tallied four points apiece, scoring three goals and dropping one assist.

At the conclusion of their inaugural season, there have been many successes for the DePauw women’s lacrosse team. Not only did they pick up their first 50-point scorer in Elizabeth McCracken (30 goals, 20 assists), but they also had three players score 25 goals or more (Powell, Swiler, McCracken).
DePauw laid the groundwork for future success for the program, picking up their first victory, first NCAC triumph and leading the country in a variety of categories through the first four weeks of the season.
