NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The 17th-ranked Commodore women's lacrosse team plays host to No. 13 Johns Hopkins in a critical American Lacrosse Conference contest on Sunday April 8, at 1 p.m. CT at the VU Lacrosse Complex.
Both teams enter the pivotal league matchup with similar four-loss records, though the Commodores (7-4, 1-1 in the ALC) have played one more conference game than the Blue Jays (6-4, 1-0).
Junior Margie Curran and senior Kendall Thrift lead the Commodores in scoring, with a total of 80 points on the season. Hopkins' Mary Key leads in the nation in scoring, averaging 7.5 points per game (39 goals and 36 assists in 10 games).
The Commodores opened the ALC season with a loss to top-ranked Northwestern at home before upsetting sixth-ranked Penn State on the road.
In the recent series, the Blue Jays have won four straight games against Vanderbilt, dating back to 2003.
Admission is free to all home games this season at the VU Lacrosse Complex.
Only one home game remains for Vanderbilt following the Hopkins contest. The Commodores play host to Notre Dame on April 18 at the VU Lacrosse Complex.
