Emily Hawryschuk Becomes SU’s Career Goals Leader During 18-11 Win vs. UAlbany

The record book has been rewritten. Ahead of yesterday’s Syracuse Women’s Lacrosse game, Emily Hawryschuk needed to record three goals in order to surpass her own head coach for the most scored in program history. Good news, she’d score four of them, helping to give SU an 18-11 win over UAlbany, and giving Hawryschuk 262 goals on her career. Coach Kayla Treanor made sure to recognize that Hawryschuk is the latest superstar offensive player to play for the Orange.

“They call it ‘Attacker U’,”said Treanor postgame of Syracuse’s program. “It’s a place where the top attackers in the country want to come and want to play. For Emily (Hawryschuk), it’s awesome that she was inspired by a group of players that were amazing attackers. She was able to fulfill that herself.”

“Having the opportunity to watch so many great players, and to have the opportunity to put on the jersey myself, that’s what my real goal was,” said Hawryschuk when asked if she believed she would ever break the all-time goals record. “I wanted to come out and play for coach (Gary) Gait, and I wanted to win a national championship. That was never anything I would have thought of, but the goal is to win a national championship.”

While yesterday was Hawryschuk’s big day, Friday might have some extra meaning for Trainor. Syracuse travels to play Boston College at Chestnut Hill. The first-year head coach spent four seasons as a member of the Eagles staff, helping to guide BC to three national championship games, including a win over The ‘Cuse in 2021.
