            WATERVILLE, Maine - Senior Kate Sheridan (Hingham, Mass.) broke another school record and the third-ranked Colby College women's lacrosse team won another game Tuesday with a 21-0 victory over Plymouth State University in non-conference play at Bill Alfond Field.

            Sheridan came into the day tied with Margaret Mauran '91 with 167 career goals. She scored two goals and dished three assists and now has 169 goals and 95 assists for 264 career points.
