Women's Lacrosse Captures Third Straight Win

Hokies sweep Davidson, 21-11.

April 1, 1998

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Junior Catherine Augustyn registered a match-high six goals to lead the Virginia Tech women's lacrosse team to a 21-11 victory over Davidson at Tech Park Wednesday.

Augustyn was one of four Hokie players with multiple goals as Tech recorded its third straight win to improve to 5-4 on the season. The loss drops the Wildcats to 3-4 on the year.

After exchanging goals with Davidson in the first two minutes of play, the Hokies went on a 6-0 run to take a 7-1 advantage with 18:12 remaining in the first half. Five different Hokies found net in the stretch, including three by Augustyn. The Wildcats, however, closed the Tech advantage to 9-6 with 3:45 remaining in the first half as junior Amanda Fleck added two goals in the comeback. Tech then closed the half on a 4-2 run to lead 13-8 at intermission.

The Hokies grabbed two more goals in the early going of the second half before Fleck answered for Davidson with her third goal of the day, closing the Wildcat deficit to 15-9 with 19:26 remaining. Davidson would score only two more goals as Tech goalie Melissa Wagner recorded a season-high 20 saves to preserve the Tech lead.

In addition to Augustyn, Tech got three goals from senior Amy Mantooth and sophomore Dawn Will. Fleck led all Davidson scorers with four goals.

Tech returns to action again on Saturday, April 4, when the Hokies face La Salle at Tech Park. First draw is scheduled for 1 p.m.
