After a five-game road swing spanning 34 days and four states, the St. Bonaventure women's lacrosse team returns home for the first time since it's home opener on Feb. 10 to take on Robert Morris. 

BUSY BONNIES
After their four games in ten days stretch on their spring break trip, the Bonnies won't get much a rest now that they've returned home. They have three games over the next eight days that culminates in their first Atlantic 10 game vs Saint Joseph's March 22. 

FRESH ON THE SCENE
In last Sunday's game against Mercer, freshman midfielder Madison Mundenar got her first real chance to show what she can do on the attack, and she made the most of it. The Yardley, Pa. native not only scored her first collegiate goal, she notched her first career hat trick.

GETTING IN THE WIN COLUMN
The Bonnies earned their first win of 2019 over spring break, topping the Kent State Golden Flashes, 18-10, on the road. Destinee Johnson led all scorers with 10 points, while Rylee Arnold and Ashley Easterday both added hat tricks. 

HOWE MANY?
Rebecca Howe dominated the draw control circle in the Bonnies March 7 matchup vs. Kennesaw State. The freshman from Laconia, N.H. secured 11 in total, a team-high on the season. In the same game, she notched her first collegiate goal. 

GOLDEN FLASH OF BRILLIANCE
Junior attack Destinee Johnson had a historic day in the Bonnies 18-10 win over Kent State March 3, serving up seven assists and connecting on three goals. Her 10 total points tied the Bonnies single-game scoring record, and she became the first to score double-digits in a game since Brenna Houghton in 2008. She was one assist shy of the single-game record, also held by Houghton. 

WHERE ARE THESE ASSISTS COMING FROM?
Before her seven assist performance, Johnson had two career assists over 28 career games. Now, she has 13 assists over her last four games. The offensive boom came from the coaching staff's decision to switch her from in front of the net to behind the net.

HEY, ARNOLD
Arnold continues to make an impact in the Bonnies' record book. With her five goals on the weekend, she's up to 60 career goals which sits T-17th all-time with Sarah Dressler and 18 behind Brenna Houghton's 78. 

A RAD START TO A CAREER
Freshman Kayla Radzyminski has proved a valuable part of the Bonnies midfield over her first six games. She's tied for fifth on the team in points with three goals and one assist and has only turned the ball over four times. 

ABOUT ROBERT MORRIS
The Colonials arrive 4-2 and fresh off a lopsided 20-8 victory over Gardner-Webb. Their first win over the season was an 11-6 defeat of Kent State on the road. One of their losses was to the Bonnies A-10 rival George Washington, 12-6, in Washington, D.C.

Offensively, they're lead by the combination of McKenzie Gandy and Melanie Gandy, who each have 13 goals and are tied for the team lead. In net, Katelyn Miller has a 9.59 goals against average and .525 save percentage.
