Behind the strength of their second-round performance, the Tribe climbed the leaderboard to claim a ninth place finish at this weekend’s Lacrosse Homes Collegiate Invitational in Grasonville, Md. After carding a 312 in the opening round, the College shot a 293 on day two for a total of 605. Junior Jimmy Femino led the Tribe, finishing in 12th and shooting a 3-over par 147. St. John’s University took the team title with a 4-over score of 580, and the Red Storm’s Keegan Bradley won the individual crown carding a 2-under 142.
Last Friday, the George Washington University Colonials bested the Tribe 11-8 in a non-conference affair in Washington, D.C. Trailing 3-6 at halftime, the College scored three unanswered goals to knot the game at six, but the Colonials outscored the Tribe 5-2 down the stretch for the win. Junior Jaime Sellers scored three goals for the College and senior Kara Parker notched two. The loss drops the Tribe to 2-7 on the season.
