Anne Arundel Community College’s Women’s Lacrosse team closed their regular season with back to back wins against Harford Community College and Howard Community College. With the two victories the Pioneers completed their perfect regular season finishing undefeated with a final record of 16-0 overall and 8-0 in the MD JUCO conference.
On Tuesday evening #1 AACC traveled to Harford CC for a 5pm conference match up against the 7th ranked Owls. The game was notched at 3-3 for much of the first half but the Pioneers finished the first half with five unanswered goals to take an 8-3 lead. Led by Mary Milligan’s seven goals in the game, Anne Arundel Women’s Lacrosse cruised to a 16-8 victory over Harford.

Nina Herron scored once and facilitated two assists. Katie Cox also scored two goals and Erika Arrildt earned one assist. Goalkeeper Brittany Kincer was tough between the pipes stopping 15 shots.
Just a day later on April 25th the Pioneers found themselves back on the road headed to #8 Howard for a 4pm MD JUCO contest. Anne Arundel’s offense was potent and proved to be too much for Howard as the Pioneers easily won 19-3.
Freshman Meghenn Jackson led AACC’s offense scoring eight goals. Karlee Zywusko added four goals and Mary Milligan scored two goals and earned two assists. Nina Herron, Morgan Fowler, Jordyn Childress, Katie Cox and Sam Adams each scored a goal for the Pioneers. Cox also had one assist and Erika Arrildt assisted two goals in the game. The Pioneer defense and goalie Brittany Kincer limited Howard to three goals while Kincer earned five saves.
With the regular season behind them AACC Women’s Lax will look towards the Region 20 Tournament which will be hosted by Anne Arundel. The Pioneers have earned the top seed for the May 5th-6th tournament and their opponent for Saturday is to be determined. The first and second place teams in the Region Tournament will earn a trip to the 2012 National Championship, May 12-13 at Monroe Community College.
