7-straight victories highlight break

The No. 13 Hoosiers posted an 8-1 record during spring break, falling only to the No. 4 Rainbow Warriors of Hawai’i.

“We did a lot of really positive things out there,” IU coach Barry King said. “We brought a great amount of intensity on the defensive end and really competed throughout.”

IU rebounded against Cal State Bakersfield, claiming an 11-2 victory.

The Hoosiers won against then-No. 9 San Diego State as senior utility player Lauren Wyckoff scored a goal from distance with four seconds left.

“It was a tremendous win for this team,” King said. “We did some really solid things out there on both ends, and we made a big play when we had to.”

IU defeated then-No. 18 California-San Diego 9-4.

Earning three consecutive victories at the Aztec Invitational propelled the Hoosiers to No. 13 nationally.

On March 17, the Hoosiers took on Cal Baptist. IU outscored them 7-3 in the second half en route to its fourth straight win.

“We came out a little sluggish early on,” King said. “In the second half, we were able to get some things going and make plays. I thought our defense caused some problems as the game went on.”

The Hoosiers jumped out to a 4-1 lead the following day after one quarter against Concordia en route to a 13-6 victory.

IU followed that up by winning its seventh straight match, defeating No. 20 Iona 14-6. Seniors Nicole Redder and Amanda Redfern each recorded a hat trick while junior goalkeeper Cassie Wyckoff posted a season-high 16 saves.

To conclude the weekend, IU won a 13-10 shootout against Redlands.
