Senior Alicia Priest of the Cazenovia College women's lacrosse team has had a season that most student-athletes could only dream of having. The senior captain has scored 86 goals on the year, eclipsing the school record of 78 set last season by Priest's former teammate Christy Foster '12. Her total points (92) are also a new school record beating out another former teammate, Nicole Kimmel '11, who set the previous benchmark at 91 points.
With her offensive explosion, Priest is not only the top scorer for the Wildcats, but she is currently ranked first in the nation in goals per game. Her prowess on the turf has been recognized as Priest has been named NEAC Women's Lacrosse Offensive Student-Athlete of the Week four times and earned recognition as the ECAC DIII Mid-Atlantic Women's Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Week on two occasions.
Breaking records and scoring goals, however, were not Priest's main objectives heading into her senior year as she states, "This year has been magical for me. I was honored when coach (Lauren Pacelli) asked me to be captain this fall and all I could think about over the winter was what could I do to lead this team as well as it was lead in the years before me."
