Women's Lacrosse Rolls into Final Four

GAMBIER, Ohio — The Franklin & Marshall women's lacrosse team is headed back to the Final Four for the 12th time in program history (ninth in the NCAA era) following an 18-13 win against No. 18 Pomona-Pitzer on Sunday afternoon. The Diplomats (18-4) will be making their first appearance in the national semifinals since back-to-back trips during the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

The Diplomats put the pressure on early and rode that strong opening half to a win as they were up 7-3 following a strong 15 minutes, but added to that advantage during a 5-1 second quarter. Four different F&M players recorded hat tricks in the victory, led by five goals and one assist from Sydney Lowe. Gillian Brennan added four goals and one assist, with Lydia Cassilly (3 goals, 3 assists) and Maddy Birch (3 goals) routinely finding their chances to score. Lane Lambeth (2 goals) and Lauren Pittman (1 goal, 1 assist) also had multiple points in the victory.
