Navy's Loren Generi joins NCAA record book in win against Virginia Tech
ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Navy senior attack Loren Generi became the first player in NCAA history to record at least 300 points, 200 goals and 400 draw controls for a career in Navy's 19-11 victory against Virginia Tech on Saturday afternoon at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
"Loren has certainly left her legacy here at the Naval Academy," Navy head coach Cindy Timchal said. "I know when the young players talk about certain inspiring players that have played at Navy that they will say that they want to be like Loren Generi. She is extremely focused, brings a lot of intensity and raises her game each and every day and today was an example of that, both in the circle and on the attacking end."
In her final game as a Midshipman, Generi recorded seven points on five goals and two assists along with a program-best 15 draw controls. She previously broke the program's single-game record for draw controls against Davidson (14) earlier this season. Along with Generi, junior Katie Gallagher tallied a career-high seven points on four goals and three assists.
Generi finished her career with 300 points on 217 goals and 83 assists along with second-most draw controls in NCAA history with 493. Her 217 goals and 493 draw controls are program highs and the 300 points are second in Navy history behind former teammate Jasmine DePompeo (336).
