The Teams: Wilmington played in a tight game this past Wednesday night against Trine narrowly falling 6-5.

Ursuline is led by Ed Karasek who was named the first head lacrosse coach in the history of Ursuline College in 2012. Last season Karasek posted an 8-8 record going 3-1 in conference.
The Players: Wilmington has been led by Rachel Reinhart and Kelly Angevine so far this season. In the first game of the year, Reinhart scored the two lone Wilmington goals on four shots in a loss to Kalamazoo. In the second game of the season Angevine led the way with a two goal performance.
