Charlotte, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/27/2012 -- Todd Shanesy from the Spartanburg Herald-Journal recently caught up with Scott Tucker, coach of Limestone College's women's lacrosse team after they claimed victory in the Conference Carlolinas tournament. According to the Journal Tucker appeared to be delighted with the performance of star player Racquel Prager, who continued her hot streak of recent form.
Limestone Saints secured the tournament by defeating Belmont Abbey 19-6 in Charlotte, NC. last week and Prager scored 6 goals for the third consecutive game. Tucker told the Journal that "She's unbelievable' Tucker heaped further praise on Prager telling the Journal that "She's actually developed into a multi-role player for us. She was always good at isolations, taking the ball to the goal. But she's done a good job of keeping her head this year, getting some assists and creating offense for others."
The win at the Conference Carolinas now means that the Saints are into the national playoffs. They will in all likelihood host the quarterfinals game in mid May. If they continue their good form one more win will see the Saints move into the final four which is set to be played in Louisville, KY at the end of May. Prager also won the MVP prize which was no surprise really considering her amazing goal scoring exploits this season.
The saints now have a 16-1 record this season and came into the game against Belmont Abbey hoping to add to their college record of scoring 20 or more goals which stood at five straight games. The 19-6 win was just short of the 20 needed to extend the record even further but the comprehensive victory will do the Saints' confidence no harm at all as they prepare for the quarterfinal game in May.
