This evening, with a 10-goal effort against Morrow Little Miami (Ohio) in the first round of the Ohio High School Athletic Association tournament, Caroline Ling has surpassed Sophia Turchetta’s all-time four-year goal-scoring mark in girls’ lacrosse. She now has 546 goals in her career, surpassing the previous mark of 545 by Fran Frieri of Lockport (Ill.). The only person with more goals is Sophia Turchetta of Harvard Bromfield (Mass.), who had 654 goals in a six-year varsity career.

Ling, last year’s national scoring champion, is also the current national leader in goals with 173. The future Rutgers University athlete also became the fifth known scholastic lacrosse player to have amassed 700 combined goals and assists in a career of any length.

Springboro advances in the OHSAA Division I tournament to play tomorrow’s winner between Liberty Lakota East (Ohio) and Cincinnati Mount Notre Dame (Ohio) in the regional quarterfinals. That game is tentatively scheduled for next Wednesday.
