COLUMBUS, Ohio Kristen Slahor, a senior on the Ohio State women’s lacrosse team, was named American Lacrosse Conference Player of the Week Thursday after leading the Buckeyes to two wins on the road last week. The Ellicott, Md., native tallied eight assists in Ohio State’s 18-7 win over UC Davis (Feb. 29) before notching two goals and three assists in the hard fought 10-7 victory over Cal Berkeley (March 2).
Her eight helpers recorded against the Aggies tied the OSU program single game assists record, a feat she accomplished as a junior as well. Slahor first tied the record set by Mara Simpson in 1998 last season in the home win over the Aggies. This season, the captain leads Ohio State with a team-high 25 points from 19 assists and six goals. Her 19 assists in five games rank first in the league and the tally is more than double the number recorded by her closest competition.
With her five points against the Golden Bears, Slahor cracked the 150 career point mark and now sits in fifth on Ohio State’s all-time career points list with 153. Nearing fourth, she is only one point shy of tying Shannon Wilson (2000-03) with 154 points while third is held by Buckeye standout Regina Oliver (2002-05) with 166.
