Shearer Caps Season with Another BIG EAST Weekly Award
May 2, 2017
Official BIG EAST Release
Shearer notched another three goals in leading the Golden Eagles to a 14-12 comeback victory over Vanderbilt on Sunday. She finished the regular season with 55 goals, which is 10 more than the next closest goal-scorer in the BIG EAST and shatters the Marquette single-season mark by 19 goals.
The Westminster, Maryland, native scored twice in the first half, helping erase an early three-goal deficit, and provided the final tally with 2:07 remaining in regulation that gave MU a three-goal advantage that proved enough. She added five ground balls, two draw controls and two caused turnovers in the win. Marquette finished the 2017 season with a 6-11 overall record, including a 4-5 mark in BIG EAST play.
Shearer, her teammates and the rest of the league will await the BIG EAST’s announcement of postseason awards, which will be released later this week.
