May 9 – CLEVELAND, Ohio – Putting the bow on an illustrious, four-year career, Hiram College women's lacrosse standout, Autumn Osgood, has been named a Second-Team All-North Coast Athletic Conference selection, announced the NCAC on Tuesday afternoon.
The honor marks the third of Osgood's career, earning Second-Team laurels for the first time after being named an honorable mention selection following both her sophomore and junior campaigns.
Despite consistently rewriting the Terrier record books over her first three seasons, her senior campaign was far and away her best, and the most prolific in the history of the women's lacrosse program. Throughout the year, Osgood consistently broke through new standards, completing a season that will be the standard by which all others are measured.
With her 2017 numbers, Osgood officially broke, or re-set, 21 different single-game, single-season and career records. Throughout her senior campaign, she posted 67 goals, 20 assists and 87 points, all of which were new single-year marks.
In addition to those numbers, the midfielder tallied a school-record 22 free-position goals, 120 shots and 92 shots on goal.
Her career numbers by then end of her senior season were just as impressive. The four-year letterwinner played and started in all 66 career games, posting 156 goals, 34 assists and 190 points. Her shot-on-goal percentage of .766 as well as her 47 free-position tallies were also Hiram career records.
Playing at a high level from the start of the season, Osgood roared out of the gate scoring at least six goals in four out of the first six games. She set the single-game Hiram record for points on March 12 against Heidelberg, posting seven goals while adding six assists (also a Terrier record).
The next game, in a victory over Wilmington, Autumn became the first Hiram player to reach 100 career goals, as she posted six markers.
Just five days later, in a shootout with Thiel College, the midfielder shattered the school record, and came one goal shy of the NCAC mark for goals in one game, as she posted 10 in a 22-15 triumph.
11 times on the season, Osgood tallied at least three goals, including five against Kenyon College and three more in a matchup with Allegheny. Six times she posted at least five goals, while posting at least six points on seven different occasions.
At the conference level, Autumn ranked among the NCAC's best, sitting first in the league in free-position goals. She also ranked in the top three in both goals per game (3.94) and points per game (5.12). Along with those numbers, she ranked fourth in draw controls (4.71), seventh in ground balls (2.71) and 12th in assists (1.18).
On a national scale, Osgood ranked in the top 30 in all of Division III in both points and goals per game.
With the honor, Autumn becomes the first Hiram player in program history to earn above an Honorable Mention selection, and is the first three-time honoree for the Terriers.
