A window inside life at Augustana College

Curiosity got the best of me tonight

Even though the lacrosse programs here at Augustana are in their early stages, I could not help but wonder if any of the teams’ accomplishments were Division III records. The men’s team found the record book under the scoring defense category for their 2012 campaign when they recorded a 5.14 average good for 13th best. Scoring defense is the term used to refer to the number of goals that a team allows. The current D III record of 3.50 was set in 1985 by Middlebury.

The Augustana women’s lacrosse team found their way to the record book several times in it’s first couple seasons. Hilary Kargl is tied for the most goals scored in a game at 14, which came against Berry College in 2012. The Vikings are also tied for 7th for points in a single game with 43 (26 goals + 17 assists) in their 26-0 stomping of Dubuque in 2013. The 17 assist performance in that match is tied for 8th most in a single game. Entering the 2014 season Augustana was sixth all time in Division III for points per game with 28.16 in 2012. The women also sat at second all time entering the season for goals per game in 2012 with 19.22 GPG. Sara Tisdale’s squad also found it’s way onto the most assists list tied for 14th from their 2013 campaign that saw 184 assists in 21 games. The 26 goal defeat of Dubuque in 2013 is also good for the 9th largest margin of victory in Division III.
