WINCHESTER, Va. – The Shenandoah University women's lacrosse team used a strong performance on the free position arc to key a 15-5 ODAC victory over Virginia Wesleyan Saturday afternoon.

Shenandoah (9-4, 3-1 ODAC) scored five free position goals in the first half to race out to an 11-1 lead over the Marlins (7-3, 1-2).

Coach Lindsey Lutz' club finished the day 7-for-9 on free position attempts, including 2-for-2 in the second half.

The squad's first three goals came on free position shots with Cassie Arndt scoring twice and Alyson Bittinger once.

Bittinger, who had a game-high five goals, scored three of her goals on free position attempts.

The Hornets scored the initial six goals of the game, and after VWU scored a free position goal of its own at 17:06, tallied the final five goals of the first half to take the 11-1 lead at the break.

Shenandoah maintained a 10-goal lead for all but 16 seconds of the second half.
