On a day where Jacksonville University honored their first ever lacrosse four-year senior class, the women’s lacrosse team locked up a share of the Atlantic Sun conference title with a 16-2 victory over Detroit.
Despite a 45-minute lightning delay, the Dolphins were able to blow past Detroit for at least a share of the inaugural A-Sun championship regular season crown and their third straight league title.
Senior Amanda Hurley scored three of her four goals in the first 10 minutes of the game to fuel a 6-0 Dolphins run to open the contest. Junior Brittney Orashen also scored two goals during the stretch helping JU to a 10-1 halftime lead.
With 22 minutes remaining, heavy rains and lightning blew through the Jacksonville area putting the game on hold for a while.
Junior Morgan Derner scored three goals and an assist and Taylor McCord added a pair of goals to go along with three assists.
The Dolphins final two games take them to Navy on Friday before they finish regular season play Sunday at Howard.
The A-Sun tournament will be hosted by JU at Southern Oak Stadium April 26-28.
