Charlotte, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/02/2012 -- Scott Tucker, coach of the Limestone Saints women's lacrosse team was full of praise for top scorer Racquel Prager recently as she broke the College's single season goal scoring record recently in Charlotte, NC. The Spartanburg Herald-Journal's Todd Shanesy recently caught up with Scott Tucker and according to Shanesy's recent piece Tucker appeared to be really pleased with not only Prager's record breaking goal scoring exploits bur her overall play for the team.
According to the article, coach Tucker commented that Prager was "unbelievable" and he also highlighted her ability to open up offensive plays for her team-mates. Last week the Saints scored a 19-6 win over Belmont Abbey that all but ensured they will be hosting the quarter finals game of the national championships in mid May. Prager scored 6 goals for the 3rd straight game and broke the single season record for the most goals scored in the college's history - 63 goals.
Prager's 64th goal of the season was her 5th of the game and her 64th of an amazing season. She is fast approaching the all time college career record of 184 goals, which is currently held by the Saints' assistant coach, Lauryn Wise. The win over Belmont Abbey secured the Conference Carolinas tournament for the Saints and Prager also clinched the tournament's MVP accolade too. Tucker was quoted in The Spartanburg Herald-Journal as saying "She's actually developed into a multi-role player for us." Which suggests her abilities are not restricted to simply putting the ball in the back of the net.
The NCAA quarterfinals now beckon for the successful Saints who have won 5 consecutive Conference titles. This year they are looking for their first division II championship success. They are ranked 4th and if Prager can continue her rich vein of goal scoring form the Saints will be confident that they can extend their season just a little longer - where the biggest prize can be found, the national championship crown.
