(Carlisle, Pa.) – Dickinson seniors Eleanor Kaestner (Glyndon, Md./Franklin) and Jack O'Connell (Sands Point, N.Y./Westminster) both tallied the 100th point of their careers, leading their respective teams to big wins on Saturday.

Kaestner became the third player on the Red Devil women's lacrosse team to reach a century mark milestone as classmates Sam Marmo (Upper Saddle River, N.J./Immaculate Heart Academy) and Anne Dunster (Cos Cobb, Conn./Greenwich) each tallied their 100th-career goal earlier this season.

Kaestner stands at exactly 100 points, netting 98 goals and handing out a pair of assists. She joins classmates Marmo and Dunster as one the top scoring trios in program history. Dunster currently ranks fifth all-time with 182 points behind 110 goals and 72 assists. Marmo broke into the top 10 in career points with two goals and one assist on Saturday to raise her career marks to 112 goals and 44 assists for 156 points.

They have combined for 55 goals this season, accounting for almost half of the Red Devil scoring as they improved to 6-3 on the year with an 18-3 win at Bryn Mawr.

O'Connell had another big week for the #10-ranked Red Devil men's lacrosse team, netting 11 goals and handing out four assists in a 2-0 week. He went over the century mark on Saturday, raising his career total to 103 points with 67 goals and 36 assists in a 19-6 win at Eastern University.

He leads the Red Devils and ranks second in in the conference in goals and points this season with 39 and 52, respectively.

O'Connell is the second Red Devil to reach the century mark this season as classmate Brodie Phillips (Charlottesville, Va./St. Anne's Belfield) hit the mark in a win over Montclair State, earlier this season.

The Red Devils lead the Centennial Conference with 151 goals this season and rank third with 79 assists. They are 8-2 overall and 2-0 in the conference.
