Schulman Breaks Logger Scoring Record At Pomona-Pitzer

CLAREMONT, Calif. – Five goals today gave senior Julia Schulman 161 goals in her career as she became the all-time leading scorer for Puget Sound women's lacrosse. Schulman's five goals led the Loggers (2-4) but they fell at Pomona-Pitzer 20-14.

The historic goal came in the second half. Schulman had scored late in the first half and very early in the second half to tie Sophia Lama with 158 career goals. With 18:41 to go and down 15-9, Schulman found the back of the net to become the Loggers' all-time leading scorer. She later went on to score two more late goals.

The Loggers had scored the first two goals of the game, looking to take their final game of a three-game road trip through southern California. However, Pomona-Pitzer went on to score the next seven goals and kept the Loggers at arm's length the rest of the way.

Jana London tallied seven goals for the Sagehens (6-3) to lead the hosts and Casey Leek made nine saves in goal.

Kerri Smith and Caroline Cook each contributed three goals for the Loggers.

Schulman tallied 18 of her 28 goals this season in the last three games to lead the Loggers. She also had her team-leading ninth assist on the season today for six total points in the game. With 37 points this year, she has also scored more points than anyone in Puget Sound lacrosse history.

The Loggers will look to get back on the winning track on Friday when they return home to host Smith at 3 p.m.
