Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, junior honored after strong performances in first two collegiate starts
Lammando made the first two starts of her collegiate career and averaged 13.5 saves per game as Stonehill opened its season against a pair of top-three nationally ranked teams during a weekend trip to Pennsylvania. She played all 131:32 over the two contest and finished with a 1.83 goals against average and .871 save percentage. Lammando opened with nine saves in Friday night's season-opening 3-1 setback at No. 2-ranked West Chester University and then kept No. 3 East Stroudsburg University scoreless for over 71-minutes with a career-high 18 stops in a 1-0 double-overtime setback.
Lammando ranks third nationally and in the NE10 with her 13.5 saves per game after the first weekend of the season, while ranking fourth in the Conference and seventh nationally for save percentage and eighth in the Conference for goals against average. She entered the season having played just 72 minutes over five career appearances through her first two seasons at Stonehill. Lammando recorded the first 27 saves of her career this weekend and has now posted a 1.47 goals against average and .844 save percentage in 203:29 over seven career games played. She has been named to the NE10 Academic Honor Roll two semesters at the College.
