ST. BONAVENTURE at GEORGE WASHINGTON
After Sunday's defeat at the hands of Richmond, the Bonnies have a quick turnaround traveling to Washington, D.C. and Fairfax, Va. for a two-game road swing against George Washington and George Mason.
LAST TIME OUT
The Bonnies visited the Richmond Spiders for their first road Atlantic 10 Conference matchup of the season last Sunday afternoon. The Spiders took control of the game early, getting out to a 14-0 lead at halftime, and never looked back on their way to a 19-3 win.
Freshman Annie Dombrowksi notched her first career point against Richmond, helping on senior Olivia MacDonald's goal in the second half. She is the fifth freshman to record a point this season, joining Kayla Radzyminski, Rebecca Howe, Sarah Sinsebox and Madison Mundenar.
Madison Mundenar leads all Bonnies freshmen with five goals, and the Yardley, Pa. native has yet to miss when she fires a shot on net. She's taken seven shots, five on goal for a shooting rate of .741 percent.
After being named an Atlantic 10 Second-Team All-Conference defender last year, senior captain Kathryn Yoder is continuing to cause problems for opposing offenses. The Amherst, N.Y. native is third in the A-10 with 21 caused turnovers and her 107 career caused turnovers are 22 behind Emily Lilyea '03 for most all-time in St. Bonaventure history.
EASTER IS ON THE WAY
It's not easy to improve on a 31-point freshman season, but sophomore attack Ashley Easterday continues to improve on the offensive end. Her 12 goals and 15 points are third-most on the team, and she's on pace to surpass her freshman year total of 20 goals.
Junior Destinee Johnson had one of the best six-game stretches in Bonnies history starting on spring break. From March 1 to March 19 she amassed 26 points, the most over a six-game stretch for SBU since Jenna Schlagenhauf scored 26 to start the season in 2013.
Freshman defender Erin Keller earned her first collegiate start against Siena, which marked the fifth freshman who has earned a start at some point this season joining Kayla Radzyminski, Madison Mundenar, Rebecca Howe, and Sarah Sinsebox. Radzyminski leads all freshman with seven starts.
