Memphis - Rhodes College women's lacrosse improved to 11-3 on the weekend and 5-0 in the Southern Athletic Association after a 19-9 victory over Hendrix Saturday, followed by a 24-3 decision over Oglethorpe University on Senior Day.
The highlight of Sunday was Cunningham's first goal against the Stormy Petrels. Cunningham received the ball from Aubrey Gray behind the cage, then dodged her defender with a quick spin before firing a laser to the upper right corner for her 300th career goal. She is just the seventh person among all NCAA players to reach the coveted 300 mark and is the first since the 2015 season to do so. Cunningham also had a monster game on the ride, as the attacker recorded a career-high seven caused turnovers, led the game with six ground balls and finished with four goals and five points.
Against Hendrix she tallied eight goals on 11 shots. On the weekend, Cunningham totaled 13 points including 12 goals.
Rhodes will look to earn the SAA regular season Championship on Saturday when they play at Centre College at 11 a.m. EST.
