Men's Lacrosse Closes 2019 Against DePauw

The Hiram men's lacrosse team concluded their 2019 season on Saturday afternoon, falling to DePauw University, 22-4.

Prior to the day's contest, the Terriers honored their eight senior members, including: Kegan Finegan, Justin Dionne, Alec Eldridge, Randy Tucker, Marcus McNeal, Jonah Austin, Nick Jericho and Alex Meehan.

The Tigers controlled the game from the jump, scoring 10 unanswered goals in the first quarter before riding the momentum to the win.

Hiram scored back-to-back tallies to open the second quarter, getting unassisted goals from Hunter Jenkins and Jaret Walland within 30 seconds of eachother. However, DePauw answered with five more goals, sending the game into the half with the visitors holding a 15-2 lead.

Jenkins would add two more scores in the game, giving him his second hat trick of the season. His second goal of the game came off an assist from Tim Stucky, while his third was assisted by Justin Dionne.

Dionne's assist gave him 26 on the season, breaking the Hiram single-season mark which was originally set by Jenkins in 2018.

In addition to his single-season mark, Dionne finishes his Hiram career as the all-time leader in career assists with 69. He also finishes fourth on Hiram's career points list (108).

A few other records were also shattered by Terrier players over the course of the 2019 season. As the face-off specialist, Meehan finishes his career as the all-time leader in face-off wins (394) and face-off percentage (.541). He also broke the single-season records in both categories (226 wins with a .609 percentage).

Junior Liam Pinney became the first Terrier in school history to post 100 ground balls in a season, and finished the 2019 campaign with a school record, 107. He also now holds the career mark, currently standing at 213.

Tim Sucky finished the season tied with Dionne in total points (44). His point total now gives him 132 on the season, putting him just 13 back of the career record with a full season to play.

The Terriers finish the 2019 season with six victories, tying the program's high-water mark, which they also achieved last season.
