who were led by sophomore Lacy Peterson's (Hickory, N.C.) match-high three goals and one assist in L-R's dominating victory.

Newberry, in its first year of intercollegiate women's lacrosse competition, received its lone goal from freshman Nikki Colwell (Greer, S.C.).
L-R, winners of two straight matches, held large advantages in both shots taken (43-8) and ground balls (22-12) while freshman Allison Senft (Marietta, Ga.) won in goal after stopping three shots.
Newberry's goalkeeper, Alex Hatch (Woodstock, Ga.), suffered the loss despite totaling 11 saves on the afternoon.
