The women’s lacrosse team beat Linfield College 17-1 on Friday in a non-conference game at Wilson Field.
“We were pretty confident going into it,” said freshman defender Mika Henrickson. “Not that they are not a good team, but coming out of spring break and spending that week playing together, we’re a tighter unit now.”
Sophomore midfielder Danielle Zahn led the Panthers on offense with four goals. Senior midfielder Kelsey Mackin was second in scoring with three, and senior goalkeeper Tara Sonnemaker limited the Wildcats to one goal.
“Our coach is letting us run the new offense and be a lot more communicative than before,” Henrickson said. “It’s more free-form and lets us work as a team.”
The Panthers go on the road Saturday for a Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference matchup against the University of Redlands at 7 p.m.
