Boston University's women's lacrosse team could be dubbed "Baltimore North."
Ten Baltimore-area women, including goalie Brooke Barrett (John Carroll) and midfielder Chrissy Lombard (Mount Hebron), have helped the Terriers to the No. 11 ranking and a 7-1 record.
Barrett, a sophomore, leads Division I with the lowest goals-against average.
Through eight games, Barrett has allowed just 38 goals, an average of 4.75 a game.
Lombard leads the Terriers in scoring with 21 goals and nine assists. Boston U.'s first lacrosse All-American as a third-team pick last season, Lombard hit the 100 mark for career goals earlier this season and now has 110.
Also among the top scorers: Ericka Hergenroeder (Severna Park) with 10 goals and seven assists and Kyle Rutkowski (Mount Hebron) with nine goals and three assists. Jen Manning (St. Mary's) and Katie Nordhoff (Mount Hebron) have 10 points each.
Blue Jays noticed
Johns Hopkins received votes in the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association poll for just the second time since it moved to Division I last season.
The Blue Jays have won eight straight since falling to then-No. 5 North Carolina and No. 2 Duke in their season-opening road trip.
Sophomore Jamie Larrimore (Kent County), who scored her 100th career point in Wednesday's 18-11 win over American, leads the Blue Jays in scoring with 36 goals and eight assists. She has scored at least one goal in every game of her Hopkins career.
Senior Danielle Maschuci, with 32 goals and seven assists this season, needs eight goals to move into second place on Hopkins' career list. Her 229 points also rank third.
Maryland's Jen Adams continues her assault on Kelly Amonte's slew of Terrapins records.
After breaking Amonte's single-season records for points (117) and goals (71) last year, the junior from Marino, South Australia, is rapidly climbing toward all three Amonte career scoring marks. With 229 points, she is fourth in points on the Terps all-time list.
She has climbed to third in assists with 90 and eighth in goals with 139.
Amonte, the 1996 Division I Offensive Player of the Year, holds the career marks with 319 points, 187 goals and 132 assists.
In the same game, James Madison's Jess Marion (South River) tied her school's record for most goals in a game with seven. The senior midfielder leads the Colonial Athletic Association with 37 goals and 42 points.
