A recent article on FunGamesBlog.com has commended women’s lacrosse head coach Scott Tucker for developing a record breaking team, and for nurturing some of the stars of tomorrow, in particular junior attack starlet Sarah Oor.
This season, Scott Tucker became the first head coach of the women’s lacrosse team at Limestone College to reach the milestone of 200 career victories, bringing his Saint’s win total to an impressive 179. The 91 percent win rate smashes Scott Tucker’s previous club total of 21 wins and 11 losses as head coach of Division III team, SUNY Oswego.
The head coach now takes the women’s lacrosse team into the 2013/2014 season requiring just 21 wins to reach 200 victories for college. For many coaches this would be a tall order in a 22 game season, although after registering a club win total of 20-2 in the in the 2012/2013 season, it is certainly within the realms of possibility.
Scott Tucker steered the team to beat the previous record of 18-2 set in the 2011 season, helped by almost flawless away form. His lacrosse team managed to record 334 points, which cemented the team’s position at the top of the Conference Carolinas for the second successive year. Thanks to the expert coaching the team has enjoyed season on season improvements for the past 7 years (aside from a brief dip in form in the 2010/2011 season).
The performance of the team as a whole was outstanding this year, with numerous individual and team records broken. The Saints increased the total NCAA Division II Tournament appearances to eight, with six now achieved in consecutive seasons and they chalked up another NCAA Championship Game appearance.
Credit for the performance this season must be shared by the entire team, although FunGamesBlog.com concentrates on the outstanding performance of Sarah Oor this season, who has confirmed her place alongside the college’s past sporting stars.
Oor has now scored 260 points for the college lacrosse team, surpassing the previous club record of 259 points held by Kelly Lickert, although Lickert took four seasons to reach her high score, with Oor achieving the record breaking points score in just 3 seasons. With this seasons performance, Oor has already beaten the team record for assists and is 20 clear of her nearest rival.
This season Oor also smashed the team’s single season record for points and assists, registering 116 and 73 respectively. She also became only the second person to exceed a 100 point total for a season in over 40 years of lacrosse at the college. Other notable mentions include an exceptionally strong season by teammate Sylvia Queener, who reached an impressive season point total of 96, beating the previous women’s record by a full 5 points.
With such strong performances by Scott Tucker’s team and some incredible talent, next year’s lacrosse season is expected to be yet another record breaker.
