Shearer Claims Another BIG EAST Weekly Honor
April 25, 2017
Official BIG EAST Release
The Westminster, Maryland, native eclipsed the 50-goal mark on Saturday with a five-goal performance in a 19-2 win over Butler on Senior Day, giving her 52 goals on the season. It was the 15th time this season she registered multiple goals in a game and the 10th time she scored at least three.
Shearer also chipped in two ground balls, three draw controls and a caused turnover in yet another solid all-around effort. In a season full of firsts and record-breaking performances, Shearer's three draw controls gave her 102 for her career and placed her as the only member in program history to record at least 100 goals and 100 draw controls.
With only one regular season game remaining against Vanderbilt on Sunday, April 30, Shearer looks to become the first Marquette player ever to lead the BIG EAST in goals scored as she currently sits atop the list of scoring leaders, totaling five more than the second-leading scorer, Mollie Stevens of Florida. Shearer also has a league-leading 27 goals during league action.
She and the Golden Eagles will embark for Nashville, Tennessee, this weekend for the regular season finale. First draw against the Commodores is set for 1 p.m. Central time.
