NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (May 8, 2013) – Making its first-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament, the Sewanee women's lacrosse team fell at nationally-ranked Christopher Newport 23-6 Wednesday afternoon at Captains Field.
The Tigers end their season with a 13-7 record and as the Southern Athletic Association (SAA) Champions.
CNU (18-2) jumped out to a quick first half lead after the Captains netted four straight goals.
Unfortunately, that would be the only offense Sewanee would have in the first half. CNU closed the first with 11 straight scores.
The Captains opened the second half on a 5-0 run, before Sewanee came alive with four consecutive goals.
Juricic would also add one final goal for Sewanee with 23 seconds left.
Jessica Singer and Ashton Marshall led CNU with four goals each.
Wednesday also marked the final match for seniors Vietor, Arnold, and Anna Morrow.
