NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The 14th-ranked Commodore women's lacrosse team closes out its 2008 American Lacrosse Conference season on Friday, April 11, when Ohio State visits the Vanderbilt Lacrosse Complex for a 4 p.m. CT game.
Vanderbilt (8-4, 2-1 ALC) is coming off an exciting 11-10 sudden-victory overtime win at Johns Hopkins last weekend. Sophomore Carter Foote had a hat-trick for the Commodores, including the game-tying goal in regulation and the game-winning goal in the 69th minute of play.
VU senior Brooke Shinaberry is the reigning American Lacrosse Conference Player of the Week. Her save in the first sudden-victory period led to the Commodores' game-winner against the Bluejays. It was her 11th stop of the day.
Ohio State (7-5, 0-1 ALC) is finishing up a four-game road stretch after going 1-2 against a trio of teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Buckeyes defeated Virginia Tech two weeks ago before suffering losses at North Carolina and Maryland.
Admission is free to Friday's contest. Following the Ohio State game, Vanderbilt will travel to Albany (April 13) and Notre Dame (April 16) before returning home to play host to Duke (April 20) for Senior Day.
