CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Colby College's Sasha Fritts (Darien, Conn.) made it two 100-goal career scorers in two days after scoring her 100th in a 16-8 non-conference women's lacrosse victory over Union College on Tuesday in Florida.
Fritts, who is the 15th player in program history to reach 100 goals, came into the game with 97 and left with 104 after scoring seven times and dishing an assist. Colby teammate and fellow senior Kendall Smith reached 100 career goals in Sunday's win at Wellesley College.
"I’m really happy for Kendall and Sasha on an incredible accomplishment," Colby head coach Karen Henning said. "Scoring 100 goals is difficult and having two teammates, classmates, and friends share a moment days apart makes it that much sweeter."
Fritts and Smith are the closest teammates in days to reach 100 career goals. Jen Lally '90 and Margaret Mauran '91 scored their 100th goals three days apart in April 1990. Marcia Ingraham '02 and Angela Papas '01 both reached 100 goals in 2001, while Kate Pistel '13 and Lindsey McKenna '14 reached the milestone together in 2013.
Fritts moved her season totals to 25 goals and two assists for the Mules (5-3 overall). She has scored 22 goals in her last four games.
Meanwhile, Smith kept scoring as well with three goals and one assist against Union. Emma Banks had two goals and one assist, Maddie Hatch added two goals, Grace Crowell had one goal and one assist, and Kelsey Bowen scored once. All-Region defender Melinda Edie picked up her first collegiate point with an assist. McGara DeWan and Kate Burkett also had assists.
Colby goaltender Izzy Scribano stopped eight shots for the Mules.
