LC's Weir Sets Three Records
Two Fall on Saturday, Final Mark Reached Sunday
SALEM, Va. --- The season is only three games
old for the Lynchburg College field hockey program, but records are
already starting to fall. Senior Allie Weir became the
all-time leading scorer in ODAC and Lynchburg history over the
weekend after notching seven goals between the two contests.
She also became the Lynchburg career points leader on Saturday.
Weir entered the campaign second in the ODAC and at Lynchburg in goals scored with 100 in three highly productive seasons. Her 222 career points were second at LC and third in the ODAC. Through three games, she leads the ODAC with 18 points on eight goals and two assists.
With one goal under her belt coming into the weekend, the Richmond-native added four more tallies and one assist on Saturday against DePauw University to set a new conference record for goals scored and take over the career points lead at Lynchburg. Weir's 105 goals surpassed the 104 goals Sherri Allebach (EMU 1995-99) collected for Eastern Mennonite University. At 234 points, Weir eclipsed Phebe Phelps (1980-83*) mark of 227 points in a LC uniform.
The Hornets' goals scored record boasted a new leader following Sunday's matchup against Denison University. Weir tallied three times, giving her 108 goals in her career. She surpassed Phelps for a second time with her 107th goal (pictured above).
Weir sits within reach of the all-time ODAC career points record. Allebach sits atop that list with 262 points. Weir has registered 240 points with 16 regular season games and possible postseason contests left to play.
