Women’s Lacrosse officially made their mark in Campbell history at 7 p.m. on Saturday.

The team won their first match against Kennesaw State with a final score of 21-4.

Within the first two minutes, the first goal was scored and the Camels continued their scoring streak.

In the first 15 minutes of the game, the Fighting Camels had already made 10 points and Kennesaw only 2.

The crowd felt strongly for the orange and black.

History professor Sal Mercogliano said, “Campbell Lacrosse played really well, great actually.”

By halftime the score was 15-2, Campbell.

The leading ladies of the game were Cloey Henchcliffe, who scored 8 goals, and Loren Day, who netted five.

Campbell took a total of 35 shots, while the Fighting Camel defense limited KSU to only 14.

Campbell’s LAX team consists of 9 freshmen, 4 juniors and 1 senior: a winning team.
