Coker vs. LMU South Atlantic Conference Championships Preview

Coker Cobras

The Coker College women's lacrosse team is set to travel to Harrogate, Tennessee to face Lincoln Memorial in the quarterfinals of the South Atlantic Conference Championships on Tuesday (Apr. 23). The game is slated to begin at 3:00 p.m. at the LMU Lacrosse Complex.

The Cobras finished the 2018-19 season with a 6-8 record, and enter the SAC Championships as the sixth seed in the tournament. Coker reached the SAC Championships for the first time since the 2016-17 season when they fell to Wingate 15-14 in the semifinal game.

The Cobras are led by coach Chelsea Kent, who has managed to take Coker back to the SAC Championships despite having over 50% of their goals scored by freshmen.

On the field, it's redshirt-senior, Faith Kent, and freshman Hannah Shuren that have led the team offensively. Shuren scored 31 goals and dished 15 assists in her first season in Hartsville. Hannah Baird leads a defensive attack tasked with finding a way to stop one of the most potent offenses in the conference.

Player to Watch

Kent has an enjoyed a record-breaking senior season, setting the school record in points, and goals in a game, as well as breaking Haley McCusker's record for career goals. She ends her Coker career with school records in career goals (232), assists (119), and points (351). Kent finished the regular season as the South Atlantic Conference leader in goals (62), and points (82).

LINCOLN MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY

The Railsplitters finished the season 11-5 overall, and 5-3 in conference. Lincoln Memorial earned their first ever berth in the SAC Championships, after compiling just a 5-26 record in conference play in their first four seasons.

Zervos, a junior, will be tasked with leading the LMU defense of Faith Kent, one of the most dynamic players in South Atlantic Conference history. She helped hold Kent to just one goal in their 21-11 victory over Coker back on Mar. 8.

LMU is 2-3 all-time against the Cobras, with with victories in their past two meetings.
