Vermont women’s lacrosse sophomore Sydney Mas scored her 100th career point yesterday in the Cats’ 16-13 win over UC Davis.
It was only the 26th game of her already impressive career.
Mas became the fastest UVM player to eclipse the 100-point milestone when she scored the second of her five goals against Aggies. After a 55-goal, 63-point freshman season that resulted in the America East Rookie of the Year Award, Mas has not skipped a beat tallying 36 goals in UVM’s 10 games so far.
Vermont senior Allison Pfohl also scored her 100th career point in the game. Mas and Pfohl became the 12th and 13th 100-point scorers in Vermont women’s lax program history.
Perhaps more importantly, however, the Cats are one victory shy of matching last season’s win total as they improved to 7-3 entering a big conference game this weekend against New Hampshire at Virtue Field.
Check out some highlights from CatamounTV with interviews from Pfohl and head coach Jen Johnson.
