Junior Brie Martineau leads the Jackets in points through eight games this season.

The Baldwin Wallace Women’s lacrosse team has gotten off to a bumpy start in March losing five of their last six games.

They started off the month with an away loss to Kenyon College losing 20-12 at McBride Field. Entering spring break, they traveled to the west coast to play two teams in California.

They lost the first of their two west coast games getting shut out twenty to zero by top 25 nationally ranked Claremont- Mudd- Scripps.

Unfortunately, their bad luck continued in their second spring break game with a 12-6 loss to Occidental College.

As they returned home, Baldwin Wallace was finally able to scramble a win with a strong second half performance giving them a  9-8 victory over Allegheny thanks to big performances from senior midfielder Meg Patrick, who had a team high of three goals, and junior and senior attacks Brie Martineu and Hannah Albrechta, who each had two.

However, the team’s bad luck returned as they lost their final non-conference game against Wooster with a devastating 15-14 loss in overtime.

They haven’t been able to hit stride since then and most recently lost their Ohio Athletic Conference opener against Capital, with a double-digit point deficit of 20-10.

Baldwin Wallace will be looking to change their luck at their next game on March 30 against Marietta at Marietta at 1 p.m.
