Westbrook High School graduate Lauren Sawyer had a record-setting day for the Keene State College Owls womens lacrosse team on April 18.

Sawyer, a sophomore midfielder for the Owls, had two goals and a school-record eight assists as Keene State celebrated its senior day with an 18-4 Little East Conference victory over UMass-Dartmouth.

Sawyer’s eight assists give her 44 for the season, also a new Owl mark. She currently has 79 assists, three short of the career record of 82 held by Michelle Mason.

“It feels good to break the record because it’s all about helping my teammates score,” said Sawyer. “I was a point guard on my high school basketball team, so I always had a tendency to look for the pass first.”

“We just click when we’re working together,” said Sawyer about the Keene State offense. “We talk about making smart plays and it’s paid off.”

“Lauren has always looked for the pass before shooting, but now she’s showing more patience and making the right pass,” said Keene State College Coach Katie Arsenault.

In recognition of her record-setting performance, Sawyer was named one of Keene State College’s athletes of the week on April 21.
