W&L’s unbeaten run reaches 12 after 13-0 win over Hollins


LEXINGTON, Va. — The Washington and Lee women’s soccer team saw 11 different players score a goal as the team used a 13-0 win over Hollins to extend their unbeaten streak to 12 games.

The win improves the Generals to 8-0-4 overall and 3-0-1 in ODAC play as the 12-game unbeaten streak this season is now the third-longest streak to start a season in program history. The second longest such run was in 2019 when the Generals started 15-0-2. Additionally, the 13 goals scored marks the second-most goals scored in a game, while the 13-goal win is also the second-largest winning margin in program history.

Second year Ann Riley Huber (Atlanta, Ga./Holy Innocents’ Episcopal) scored the game’s first goal just 61 seconds into the game, as W&L scored five goals on the board in the first eight minutes of the game. The next four goals were halved each by the seniors Lindsay White (Greenville, SC / JL Mann) in the fourth and seventh minutes and Grace Wielechowski (Charlotte, NC/Charlotte Catholic) in the sixth and eighth minutes.

Second year Whitney McCormick (San Antonio, Texas/Saint Mary’s Hall) added the team’s sixth goal in the 42nd minute, and it was also his first collegiate goal.

Second-half goals were scored in the 48th, 52nd, 54th, 63rd, 65th and 80th minutes to complete the scoring. Seven different players scored a goal each for the Blue and Whites in the second half, the seniors Annie Martin (Martinsburg, W.Va./Martinsburg) providing assistance to seniors Ava Boussy (Finksburg, Md./Westminster) in the 54th minute, before Martin scored the final goal in the 80th minute.

With McCormick and Boussy, the seniors Caitlin Barnes (Cincinnati, Ohio / Summit Country Day), Caroline Lawson (White Post, Va./Highland School), Sophie Roche’ (Ashburn, Virginia / Broad Run) and madison sumatra (Franklin, Tenn./Ravenwood) all scored their first goals of the season. Wielechowski recorded a team-best six points that day with two goals and two assists in the first half, with the two assists both coming from White’s own goals.

First year Helene Otteni (Arlington, Va./The Potomac School) also contributed to two goals, with an assist on both of Wielechowski’s scores. Second year Sarah Lathrop (Dayton, Md./Glenelg) and Freshman Marguerite Schweppe (Shelby, NC/Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy) rounded out the point scorers with one assist apiece. Junior Sidney Smith (Damascus, Md./Damascus) and freshman year Abby Groff (Blacklick, Ohio/Saint Francis DeSales) combined on the shutout, with Groff stopping Hollins’ lone shot (0-7, 0-4) in the game in the 80th minute.

Isabella Workman was responsible for Hollins’ one shot in the game. Cat Bussani played the first half in goal and made 12 saves while T Shover played the second half and made five saves.

W&L finished the game with 58 shots and 30 attempts on goal. The 58 shots are the most for the program since they recorded 58 in a 9-0 win at Sweet Briar last season, with the 30 shots on goal also the most since that game (31).

The Generals will be back in action on Wednesday when they travel to Roanoke to face the Maroons at 7:00 p.m.
