Baltimore, goalie

Hicklen set a program single-game record with 16 saves in Saturday’s 17-10 upset of then-No. 3 North Carolina. The Towson High graduate held the Tar Heels to their lowest offensive output of the season while facing 39 shots. In the first 12 minutes, she had five saves, including two against free-position shots as the Gators raced to a 4-0 lead. She has made at least 10 saves in every game and had 14 in a 16-14 setback to Maryland, Florida’s only loss this season. Last season’s Big East Goalkeeper of the Year, Hicklen has a.546 save rate, the fifth best in Division I, and leads the team with 20 ground balls. She allows 11.1 goals per game for Florida, which moved up to No. 4 in this week’s Inside Lacrosse media poll.
