Marquette Women's Lacrosse West Coast Road Trip

The Marquette University women’s lacrosse team will face St. Mary’s (Calif.) on Sunday, March 10 in Moraga, Calif., as the squad opens a nine-day, three-game West Coast road trip against the Gaels at St. Mary’s Stadium.
“We have to stay focused and on track as we begin our road trip Sunday at St. Mary’s,” Marquette head coach Meredith Black said. “This is the ladies’ first spring break trip so they have to realize that they are still in season and stay focused on the task at hand. We have a great opportunity in front of us and it will be exciting to go out to warmer weather.”
The Golden Eagles (2-2) evened their overall record with the first home win in program history on Sunday, March 3 against Detroit Mercy, 11-10, at Valley Fields. Freshman Hayley Baas led the way for MU with four goals and an assist, while redshirt freshman Anna Muzika scored the game winner with 1:11 remaining after Marquette rallied from a five-goal deficit.
Freshman Claire Costanza leads the Golden Eagles’ attack through four games with 14 points on five goals and nine assists. The Webster, N.Y., native ranks 25th in NCAA Division I through games of March 3 with 2.25 assists per game.
St. Mary’s dropped its last game on Tuesday evening to the University of California (18-9) after picking up its first win of the season on March 1 over UC Davis (16-15, OT). The Gaels are being outscored by an average of 7.5 goals per game this season, which also includes a 19-6 loss to San Diego State and a 17-8 defeat at the hands of USC.
Amanda Cross leads the Gaels (1-3) against Marquette with a team-high 13 points. Jillian Chong is tied for the team lead with Cross with eight goals, while Jaclyn Biggers has tallied six markers and 21 draw controls.

The top five positions remained the same atop this week’s US Lacrosse Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Associates (WCLA) Division I poll… Colorado State again garnered unanimous No. 1 support following a March 2 rout of Texas A&M… In a statistical oddity, Brigham Young went up from No. 8 to No. 6 and Texas went down from No. 6 to No. 7, despite the fact that the Longhorns beat BYU 9-8 on March 2… Florida Club will have been idle for exactly a month when they draw Central Florida next weekend… UConn Club debuts in this second poll of the season after beating Syracuse Club on March 3… Dropping from this week’s top 20 was Georgia Tech after the Yellow Jackets lost 10-11 vs. Wisconsin… Conspicuously missing from this list is defending national champion UC Davis. The university canceled the team’s season after an unspecified disciplinary ruling.

UC Davis Club Women's Lacrosse

Defending WCLA Division I champion UC Davis Club has canceled its 2013 season after a disciplinary ruling from the university. The nature of the disciplinary ruling or what conduct prompted it has not been disclosed by the school or team.
UC Davis spokesperson Julia Ann Easley cited the “independence with which club sports operate” and referred the matter to UC Davis Women’s Club Lacrosse Co-Presidents Amy Corstorphine and Jamie Yates.
“At this time, the team has accepted a disciplinary ruling from the university and we are working cooperatively with them to move forward in a positive manner and make this a positive learning experience for all club members,” Yates said in a statement. “This is the extent to which we wish to comment.”
UC Davis is a member of the Western Women’s Lacrosse League. Commissioner Jennifer Lee, who is also the coach at Santa Clara, said UC Davis released a statement on the team’s behalf.
“The UC Davis Women’s Lacrosse Club will not be competing in the 2013 season, the club is working cooperatively with the university to move forward from this incident in order to make this a true learning experience for all club members,” the statement said. “We appreciate all the support and apologize for any inconveniences that we may have caused, we look forward to competing during the 2014 season.”
