The Wells College women's lacrosse team opened the final weekend of the regular season with a 20-3 victory at Hilbert College on Friday, April 26 in a game played at Hamburg, New York. The Express was led by a hometown return performance from Renee Bartosz. The Wells senior, a native of Hamburg and graduate of Frontier High School, scored six goals and added two assists. Bartosz surpassed 100 career goals in the game.
The victory improved Wells' record to 7-5 on the season with a 5-3 record in the North Eastern Athletic Conference. The Express stands in fourth place in the NEAC with one regular season game remaining. Wells has secured a playoff spot, and a victory on Saturday against Medaille would clinch a home game in the opening round of the conference playoffs.
