HARTSVILLE, S.C. – The Coker women's lacrosse team picked up a 19-11 non-conference win over Erskine College on Thursday (Mar. 26) to make it six straight victories at home. The Cobras are now 6-5 on the season and riding a two-game winning streak.
The game was never in question as the Cobras started the game on an 8-0 run, which grounded the Flying Fleet's attack before it could take off. The Navy and Yellow would lead 13-4 at the break. Erskine would outscore Coker 7-6 in the second half, but Coker's barrage in the first half would prove insurmountable as they came away with a 19-11 victory.

Claudia Jenkins and Mackenzie Baker each would tally two goals and an assist for three points. Cierra Davis would find the back of the net twice and Millie Rogers would net a goal of her own.
