CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Queens, ranked seventh in NCAA II, claimed a 16-4 win over visiting Catawba in South Atlantic Conference women’s lacrosse action on Thursday afternoon at the Queens Sports Complex.  The Royals improve to 3-1 overall and 1-0 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 2-2 and 0-1.

Freshman Gianna Pezzulo (Henniker, N.C./Cushing Academy) scored two of Catawba’s four goals.  Kirstyn Kruse (Sagamore Beach, Mass./Williston Northampton Prep) picked up a goal with an assist.  Freshman Jillian Kurolvech (Clarkston, Md./Clarkston) had the other goal for the Lady Indians, while Crista Clayton (Jacksonville Beach, Fla./Fletcher) had an assist.
