TIFFIN -- In its second year as a program, the Heidelberg University women's lacrosse team saw dramatic improvement. The team posted a 6-9 record, including a 2-6 mark in the Ohio Athletic Conference.

A quartet of Student Princes scored 20+ goals this season, led by freshman Angela Lulejian with 33 goals and four assists. Junior captains Dana Dudley (23 goals, seven assists) and Jen Kovarik (21 goals, six assists) played a key role in the Heidelberg attack. Sophomore midfielder Anna Winnicki registered 23 goals and caused a team-leading 37 turnovers as well.

In between the pipes, freshman Jessica Ballow played a crucial part in HU's success this season. Ballow started all 15 games in goal, making 112 saves and tallying a save percentage of 42.4%.

Additionally, the defensive side improved tremendously, led by Pree Bryant and Amanda Sugrue. The pair combined to cause 37 turnovers throughout the season.

The season was highlighted by the first win in program history -- a 7-5 win over Concordia (MI) in the season opener.
