The senior attacker led the Sailors to their most successful week in at least six years. Her 13 goals and nine assists paced the Sailors (5-1-2) to an undefeated week that boosted them into the Top 15 at No. 11.

It all started with a 6-6 tie against No. 4 Bryn Mawr in which Kirby scored the game-tying goal and finished with two goals and an assist. She had three goals and an assist in a 6-5 win over No. 5 Roland Park. At the Best of the West tournament Saturday, Kirby had eight goals and seven assists as the Sailors swept Centennial and Catonsville to take the title.
