The Moravian Women’s lacrosse team is off to a 6-2 start and their offense has been pretty impressive to say the least. The Greyhounds have scored in double digits in all eight games, and have put up at least 20 goals in three of those contests. In their six wins they have outscored their opponents 117-61. While it takes several players to pull off these dominant victories, there have been a few players in particular who have been standing out. The first is Moravian Academy alum and sophomore Meaghan McMullan is already having a heck of a year. She was recently recognized as the Landmark Conference Offensive Athlete of the Week. She has already scored a school record 13 points in a game, when she netted 8 goals and tacked on 5 assists at Widener. And, most recently, she scored seven goals and added an assist against DeSales becoming the eighth player in Moravian history to reach 100 career points. She currently has 29 goals and 18 assists. Keep in mind – McMullan is just a sophomore.
McMullan is not the only one having a stellar career as a Hound. Senior Jillian Picciuto has already left her mark at the school. Back in 2017, she set the single-season school record for goals (68) and points (103). She has not slowed down either. This season, she became the first player in school history to score 200 goals in the Hounds Conference opener. And, she currently has 22 goals on the season with 10 assists and 32 points.
Junior Liz Bill is another player that must be mentioned. Bill currently sits second in school history with 186 points, and has a team-high 37 goals this season.
The Greyhounds next game is on Saturday against The Catholic University of America.
