Lacrosse Open Thread, Week Ending April 10 2022

# 1 North Carolina continues to be on a roll this season with their returning stars plus several new faces from the transfer portal. Boston College continues as the strong #2, while our Northwestern Wildcats lead the rest of D1 WLAX at #3. Both games this week are at home, so if you're in the area, do your best to come out and show the team some support!

In addition to Lauren Gilbert leading the Big Ten in goals (11th nationally), Jill Girardi also leads in the number of draw controls with an average of ten per game.

The No. 3 Northwestern lacrosse team comes home this week for a pair of games against Rutgers and San Diego State after a three-game road trip. On Thursday, April 7, at 7:30 p.m. CT, the Wildcats take on the No. 15 Scarlet Knights in a Big Ten Network game. The final non-conference game of the regular season, against the Aztecs, kicks off at Noon CT on B1G+ on Sunday, April 10, in the first outdoor game of the season at Lanny and Sharon Martin Stadium.
