University of Denver women’s lacrosse senior Kate Henrich (Lansdale, Pa.) tied both DU’s and the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation’s single-game records with eight caused turnovers and added her first-career assist, leading the No. 20 Pioneers to a 14-10 win over No. 10 Stanford at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium on Friday afternoon.
Junior Jenn Etzel (Bel Air, Md.) had four goals and one assist for Denver (12-1, 4-0 MPSF), and senior Mikayla Clark (Eden Prairie, Minn.) finished with three goals and an assist. Redshirt-senior Kara Secora (Denver, Colo.) tallied four points on one goal and three assists, while junior Annabelle Gilbride (Alexandria, Va.) scored two goals.
“Today was a great game. I thought the first half was exceptional on our end,” head coach Liza Kelly said. “We came out strong both offensively and defensively. The girls seemed very comfortable and knew what the game plan was today. I had a feeling that Mikayla Clark was going have a good game today, and she had the early caused turnover and the first goal of the game.”
DU’s all-time leader with 147 career caused turnovers, Henrich matched former Pioneer Kelly O’Connell, who also caused eight turnovers against Stanford on April 20, 2008. Henrich moved into eighth in NCAA history in career caused turnovers and also recorded her 48th caused turnover this season, breaking the team record she set last year. Henrich added three ground balls and two draw controls.
