St. Mary's City, Md. – All four Seahawk seniors tallied at least one point as the St. Mary's College of Maryland women's lacrosse team soared past Frostburg State University on Senior Day. St. Mary's (7-7, 3-3 CAC) rebounded from Wednesday's loss with a commanding 19-5 Capital Athletic Conference win over the Bobcats (5-8-1, 2-4 CAC).

Before the game, the Seahawks honored their four seniors – defender Maribeth Anderson (Phoenix, Md./Dulaney), attackers Gabby Beese (Towson, Md./Notre Dame Prep) and Lacey Brown (Monkton, Md./Hereford), and midfielder Megan Cannon (Reisterstown, Md./Notre Dame Prep) - for their years of dedication and leadership to the program. During their career, St. Mary's has posted an overall record of 45-25, including a 20-10 record in Capital Athletic Conference action. In 2016, these seniors led the team to their first NCAA Tournament berth since 2008. The Seahawks have also made three straight appearances in the CAC Tournament, including a title bid in 2016 and a semifinal appearance in 2015.
