By the numbers for women's lacrosse (March 27)

Here’s a look at some of the numbers that stood out in college women’s lacrosse over the past week.

2 — No. 3 Maryland knocked off two straight undefeated teams within 48 hours last week, topping then-No. 7 Penn, 13-7, Thursday and then-No. 3 James Madison, 15-12, Saturday. That leaves just two teams unbeaten in Division I — No. 1 Stony Brook (8-0) and No. 2 Boston College (12-0).

12 — Boston College is riding a 12-game winning streak, the longest in program history and the longest active streak in Division I. The Eagles, who fell to Maryland in last year’s national championship, have beaten five ranked teams and are winning by an average of 8.2 goals.

18 — Robert Morris goalie Katelyn Miller (C. Milton Wright) made a program-record 18 saves in a 13-12 win over Louisville, the Colonials’ first-ever win over an Atlantic Coast Conference team. The sophomore, who faced 38 shots, made her final save with five seconds left to seal the win.

29.1 — Towson has scored 29.1 percent of its goals on free-position shots. The No. 9 Tigers scored on six of 12 attempts in their 14-11 win at No. 6 Florida on Wednesday. After hitting three of six in Monday’s 15-10 win over Oregon, the Tigers are scoring on 57.8 percent of their 8-meter shots, second best in Division I.

500 — The College of New Jersey’s Sharon Pfluger became the first women’s lacrosse coach with 500 career victories when the Lions defeated The College at Brockport, 18-0, Saturday. In 32 seasons, Pfluger is 500-56-1 and has led the Lions to 11 Division III national championships. Navy coach Cindy Timchal needs two wins to reach 500.
