Kronick sets career goal record as Hopkins rolls
Junior Hannah Kronick set a school record by scoring her 56th career goal as Johns Hopkins defeated visiting Bryn Mawr, 9-1, in women's soccer on Saturday. After playing a one-touch pass to Christina Convey on the wing, Kronick received her teammate's cross in the box and powered a header past the goalkeeper to open the scoring in the 15th minute. Freshman Vania Ludman led Hopkins with the first multi-goal performance of her career, scoring in the 48th and 74th minutes. Kelly Baker, Alexa Rangecroft, Meg Van de Loo, Jennie Hall, Kylie Fuller and Kaitlin Brooks added goals for the Blue Jays (12-1-1, 5-0-1 Centennial Conference) as the team scored its most goals in a game since Sept. 15, 2007. Kronick tied Erica Suter's mark of 55 career goals in a victory over Dickinson on Wednesday. After surpassing her former teammate, Kronick was quick to recognize the influence that the River Hill alumnus had on her game. "Playing with [Suter] freshman year was a really cool experience for me, because I got to see the way she did everything," Kronick said. "I never would have thought I would be following in her footsteps so quickly, but I learned so much from the way she played and the way she composed herself on the field."
