Lenaghan Becomes First in Women's Lacrosse Program History to Reach 100 Points in a Season

BABSON PARK, Mass.—Babson College junior Lexi Lenaghan (Hanover, Mass.) became the first player in the history of the women's lacrosse program to reach 100 points in a season in the Beavers' 17-4 NCAA Tournament first round win over Castleton University on May 12.

Making her NCAA Tournament debut, Lenaghan recorded four goals and two assists in just over 13 minutes against the Spartans. She dished out a pair of assists in the opening minutes and then scored four of the Beavers' next five goals to reach the 100-point milestone on a tally to make it 8-0 with 16:46 to go in the first half. Lenaghan added two more markers in a second round loss to eventual Division III runner-up Middlebury and finished her first season at Babson with 68 goals and 34 assists for 102 points.

Lenaghan, who ranked 22nd in Division III in points, set a new program record averaging 5.37 points per game. She also broke the school's previous single-season points record of 91 set by Anna Collins '10 in 2009, and her 68 goals are good for the second most by a Babson player in single-season history.

After putting up 32 goals and 58 points in two seasons at Division I Hofstra University, Lenaghan scored at least four goals in 12 games, and finished with six or more points on 12 occasions for the Beavers during the 2018 campaign.
