Women's Lacrosse Captures Fourth Straight Victory

Tech downs La Salle.

April 4, 1998

Virginia Tech got five goals from sophomore Maeghan O'Doherty to down La Salle, 15-4, in women's lacrosse action at Tech Park Saturday afternoon.

The win was Tech's fourth straight, tying a school record set by the 1996 squad. The Hokies are now 6-4 overall, just one win shy of the Tech record for wins in a season. With the loss, La Salle falls to 1-5 in its first season of collegiate lacrosse.

O'Doherty (Annapolis, Md.) scored Tech's first goal as the Hokies jumped out to a 3-0 lead before the Explorers' Jennifer Heigel answered with one of her two goals to cut the LU deficit to 3-1. La Salle, however, was unable to get any closer as Tech countered with a 6-0 run to lead 9-1 at the intermission.

Tech continued its run in the second half as the Hokies outscored La Salle 6-3 down the stretch to clinch the win. Tech's goalkeepers Melissa Wagner (Pasadena, Md.) and Stacey Rainbolt (New Carrollton, Md.) combined for 15 saves in the win.

Seven different Hokies scored in the affair with O'Doherty and Dawn Will (Phoenix, Md.) leading the way. Will, now ranked seventh in the nation in goals scored, finished with four goals and one assist.

Heigel and Mary Quinlan each had two goals for the Explorers while freshman goalie Nicole Travaglini finished with 13 saves in the losing effort.

The Hokies continue their homestand Saturday, April 11, when they face Ohio State at Tech Park. First draw is scheduled for 1 p.m.
