Salisbury women looking for 11th straight CAC title

No women’s college lacrosse team has dominated its conference recently the way Salisbury has.

The Sea Gulls have won 93 straight games over their Capital Athletic Conference opponents and are looking for their 11th straight conference title when they host York (Pa.) in Saturday's final.

Coach Jim Nestor’s Sea Gulls (17-0) have not lost to a CAC opponent since March 19, 2003.

The Sea Gulls swept CAC postseason honors with Katie Bollhorst (St. Mary’s) named CAC Player of the Year for the second straight year and Nestor picking up his ninth Coach of the Year honor. Five other Sea Gulls were named to the all-conference first team: Lauren Feusahrens, Meghan Toomey (St. Mary’s), Bethany Baer (Westminster), Laura Maskell (Marriotts Ridge) and goalie Ashton Wheatley.

In conference play this season, no opponent came closer than seven goals of the Sea Gulls. Last weekend, they won their CAC semifinal over St. Mary's, 16-4.

The Sea Gulls are ranked No. 2 in Division III behind the team that beat them in last year’s national championship game, Trinity (Conn.). Both teams are undefeated and the Sea Gulls would like nothing more than a rematch with the Bantams (15-0).

First, however, they need to get past York (13-3), the No. 10 team in Division III, Saturday at 1 p.m. at Sea Gull Stadium. Salisbury defeated the Spartans, 16-7, during the regular season.

After that, the Sea Gulls will find out where they fall in the Division III tournament bracket when it is announced Sunday night.
