    Apr 25, 2021 | Jacksonville Fla | Lacrosse

    The ninth-ranked Jacksonville Dolphins pulled away in the second half for a 22-11 victory over the Liberty Lady Flames, Sunday afternoon at D.B. Milne Field.

With three free-position goals today, she has established a new school record with 16 this year. Her 14th free-position goal of the season with 23:41 left in the first half was the record breaker.
