College field hockey: Stonehill's Kacie Smith ties DII single-season goal record
Kacie Smith's record-setting season continued in the last weekend of the regular season of DII field hockey.
Though Stonehill's season ended on a sour note with two straight losses, Smith continued to light up the opponents' nets. In Saturday's 2-1 defeat to LIU Post, Smith extended her 16-game goal scoring streak, recording her 40th of the season. The junior All-American tied Jamie Vanartsdalen's single-season record set in 2008 with Bloomsburg. The goal leaves Smith just five points shy of tying Vanartsdalen's 102 point mark for a season as well.
Smith now leads all of NCAA field hockey in goals and points, while her 17 assists are tied for second across all levels. Stonehill will rest up with a first round bye, as Smith and the Skyhawks enter the NE-10 tournament looking for a spot in the NCAA postseason.
