Lynchburg, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's women's lacrosse team made it three-straight wins Saturday with a 19-0 drubbing of NAIA member Columbia (S.C.).

Junior attackman Carly Sandler (Kennebunk, Maine) led the Hornets with a five-goal, two-assist effort, while senior midfielder Hannah Creasey (Virginia Beach, Va.) and junior attackman Kelsi Trevisan (West Chester, Pa.) each notched hat tricks.

Senior goalie Lauren Bodamer (La Plata, Md.), junior goalie Emmy Yarmy (New Rochelle, N.Y.), and the Hornet defense combined for the team's first shutout since April 1, 2015.
