Here's how the Polar Bear lacrosse teams fared in North Carolina

Both ONU lacrosse teams traveled to North Carolina for spring tune-ups last week. Here’s a report on their week.

Men’s team
BREVARD, N.C. — The Ohio Northern men's lacrosse program toppled NCAA Division III foe Brevard (N.C.) 15-8 at Ives-Lemel Field Saturday, concluding an undefeated Spring Break road trip to North Carolina.

With the victory, the Polar Bears improve to 4-1 overall this season. In addition, they conclude their annual Spring Break trip with a 3-0 record after defeating Guilford (N.C.) 6-4 and Pfeiffer (N.C.) 22-8 earlier this week.

Meanwhile, the Tornados move to 2-4 in 2019 after dropping their past three contests.

Ohio Northern out-shot Brevard 68-25 overall, which included a 37-17 edge in shots on goal. The Polar Bears also caused 11 turnovers, picked up 55 ground balls, and ended 17-for-18 on clear attempts in the weekend contest.

ONU will return to action next Saturday, March 16 with a road contest at Alfred (N.Y.). Game time is set for 1 p.m.

Women
GREENSBORO, N.C. - The Ohio Northern women's lacrosse program broke its single-game scoring record Friday afternoon, ending their 2019 Spring Break trip with a resounding 19-2 victory over Greensboro (N.C.) at Pride Field.

The Polar Bears' 19 goals surpassed the previous program-best mark of 18 goals set on three separate occasions, including this season's 18-3 victory over Hiram on February 27. In addition, the 17-goal triumph is now the largest margin of victory in program history.

With the victory, the Polar Bears improve to 2-2 overall and finish 1-1 on this season's Spring Break trip. Meanwhile, the Pride drop to 0-2 in 2019.

Junior goalkeeper Kelli Hill (Worthington/Thomas Worthington) totaled eight saves en route to her second win in net this season.
