CLINTON, N.Y. (WKTV) - Two years ago, the Hamilton women's lacrosse team won a national title. Last year, they didn't go all the way but they were back in the NCAA Division III final four. This year they are feeling those winning ways once again.
The Lady Continentals are 6-0 for the first time since 2004. They are ranked third in the top 20 coaches poll this week and they can score too. Try 88 goals in the first six games. By they way, this is all on the road as they have yet to play a home game. "It speaks volumes about the character of out team that we can go out there and play so well on the road against such quality opponents day in and day out." says senior goalie Kate Fowler. "We are really starting to gel as a team and its great."
The winning is now something you come to expect with this program and while they are talented, it's the work ethic that has made them what they are. "If teams are hanging with us in the first half, we are going out work them cause we have so much depth." says head coach Patty Kloidt. "Other teams are subbing maybe two or three kids, we are subbing six, seven or eight kids. So we are able to run some teams in the ground."
The Lady Continentals begin liberty league play on the road this Friday when they travel to RPI on then to Vassar on Saturday.
