First –year's Anna Schwalbe and Hannah Nelson made their presence known as they each scored a goal for the Duhawks.


Another newcomer to the Duhawks squad, Claire Sheahan started her lacrosse career off well. The first-year goalkeeper posted a 49% save percentage for the weekend, including a remarkable 59% save percentage against Midland.


Second year Head Coach, Emily Goetz was happy with what she saw from her team.


"I saw a lot of good things that the team will build on and use for momentum for out next game" Goetz said.


The Duhawks hit the road as they travel to Illinois Tech for the next contest on Saturday, March 8th.
