Ray Sets Mark for Most Career Saves

Ray Sets Mark for Most Career Saves

Grand Rapids - Junior goalie Allie Ray (Port Jefferson Station, N.Y. / Comsewogue) became the Alma College women's lacrosse program's all-time leader in saves on Tuesday (April 2) evening in a 21-1 loss at Calvin. She now has 481 saves in under three full seasons as Alma's goalie.

Ray made 17 stops in the defeat, tied for the third-most she has made in a game this season.

Ray's name is all over Alma's record book. Not only does she have more saves than anyone in the Scots' history, but she is also responsible for five of the team's top six single-game save totals and set the record for most saves in a single season last year. She is currently on track to own the top-two single-season save marks by the end of this season.

How It Happened

  • Haley Willman (Hemlock, Mich. / Breckenridge) scored Alma's only goal. It was the fifth goal of her career and first since March 2 at Franklin. Kalyn Thompson (Jackson, Mich. / Hanover Horton) assisted on the goal.
  • Genevieve Schneemann paced the Knights with eight goals. She is the conference's second-leading goal scorer with 39 on the year. Lauryn Slachter had five goals; she is eighth in the league with 27 thus far.

Notables

  • Kalyn Thompson is tied for the team-lead with three assists.
  • Allie Ray also picked up a team-high five ground balls.
  • Olivia Benoit (Grosse Pointe, Mich. / Grosse Pointe North) tied for the game-lead with three caused turnovers.
