Video Tribute: The CMS Women's Lacrosse Class of 2020

Video Tribute: The CMS Women's Lacrosse Class of 2020

CLAREMONT, Calif. - The eight members of the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women's lacrosse senior class were 3-for-3 winning SCIAC titles in their first three seasons, compiling a 41-1 league record over their careers. Their chance at a fourth straight league title and trip to the NCAA Division III Tournament was denied by the sudden suspension of spring sports, as well as the chance for a normal Senior Day tribute at the final regular season home game, so we decided to pay tribute to the CMS Women's Lacrosse Class of 2020 via video instead.

Watch the video here:

The eight members of the CMS women's lacrosse senior class include: 

#2 Emily Cohen (Midfield/Attack, Seattle, Wash. - Claremont McKenna, biology and psychology)
A four-year member of the Athenas, Cohen overcame a knee injury to reach 100 career points last year, which came on a goal off an assist from her younger sister, Sammie Cohen. She tallied 115 points on 81 goals and 34 assists, including a 49-goal season as a first-year before her injury. 
#3 Juliana Clark (Defense, Portola Valley, Calif. - Scripps, economics)
A regular starter on the CMS defense over her four seasons, Cohen ranks in the top 10 in program history in caused turnovers with 66. She also tallied 90 career ground balls and came forward to score nine goals, including a hat trick in the final game of her senior season against Cal Lutheran.

Reid was a regular contributor in the cage over the last four seasons, appearing in 34 career games including 20 starts.
