Aztec Story Lines
- SDSU is currently riding a two-game winning streak after earning home victories over LIU Brooklyn, 22-6, on March 12 and Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) foe UC Davis, 17-8, on March 16. The Aztecs have never played Princeton or any member of the Ivy League in its three-year history.
- After earning two victories last week, senior attack Meris Walsh (Easton, Md.) was named MPSF Offensive Player of the Week, while freshman goalkeeper Katrina Reeves (Granite Bay, Calif.) earned Defensive Player of the Week honors. It's the second time this season Walsh has won the award, and it is the first-career award for Reeves.
- Walsh scored seven goals with five draw controls in the two wins. The senior tied a team-high with four goals against UC Davis, while she posted a hat trick with three goals in the lopsided victory over LIU Brooklyn, in which SDSU set a new single-game team record with 22 goals. The Easton, Md., native leads the Aztecs with 19 goals this season, which is tied for 48th in the country.
- Reeves set a new career high with 15 saves in the win over UC Davis, including nine in the second half as the Aztecs outscored the Aggies, 11-2, after intermission. The freshman held UC Davis to just 1-for-10 in free position shots to improve to 5-1 in the net this season with 44 saves.
- Junior Bailey Ewing (Reisterstown, Md.) ranks second on the team with 14 goals, while junior Michaela Jarvis (Annapolis, Md.) is second behind Walsh with 18 points on eight goals and 10 assists, which is good for 49th-most in the country.
- Junior Christina Ricciardulli (Poway, Calif.) leads the Aztecs and is 40th nationally with 26 draw controls, junior Lauren Paul (Grasonville, Md.) has a team-best 14 groundballs, while junior Grace Korandovich (Columbus, Ohio) has a team-high eight caused turnovers.
- SDSU is 5-0 this season and has won six-consecutive games when leading at halftime, as well as winning five straight when it outshoots its opponent and four-consecutive games when scoring at least 15 goals. In addition, the Aztecs are 6-1 this season when they have the lead in any point in the game.
- San Diego State announces Saturday will be a Friends of Jaclyn Foundation Day Charity lacrosse game. The San Diego community is invited to the FOJ Day game, with proceeds directly supporting pediatric brain tumors through the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation. The community can also donate on behalf of SDSU women's lacrosse at www.friendsofjaclyn.org.
