In Thursday’s 21-13 loss No. Northwestern, Rutgers graduate student Taralyn Naslonski became the program’s all-time scoring leader. Her assist to junior Jenna Byrne with 11:28 remaining in the second quarter pushed Naslonski past Denise Reed (1987-90) with 233 career points as a Scarlet Knight. She finished the game with a team high six points with four goals and two assists.
Naslonski finished the game with a new career mark of 235 points, the most of any player in program history that includes 165 goals and 70 assists. She is on pace to lead RU in points for a third consecutive season and currently has 59 points so far with 44 goals and 15 assists this spring.
Her legacy continues to grow as one of the greatest players in Rutgers women’s lacrosse history. She led the Scarlet Knights to the program’s first ever NCAA Tournament victory with a team-high seven points on four goals and three assists in the win over No. 10 Drexel last season.
On Friday, the team was featured on B1G Today airing on the Big Ten Network. Here is head coach Melissa Lehman discussing the program and the season so far.
