Scoring isn't easy. But, Mount St. Mary's senior Molly Meegan makes it look routine -- and easy at times.

Behind a 28-goal effort so far this season, Molly made Mount history becoming just the 8th player in Thunder lacrosse history to reach the century mark.

"I wouldn't be able to do this without my team, family and friends pushing me to be the best and always giving me the confidence." Molly said.

"It's been really great. She's been a huge asset to the team," first year head coach Mackenzie Berger said.  "She's one of the most confident players on the field and that just sets her apart from anybody else."

Making the accomplishment even more special? Molly joined her older sister Catherine on the 100-goal list.

"It's great to join her," she said.  "It's an amazing feeling because we both share the same feeling about it.  It's awesome."

"She's been a huge asset to the team," Berger added.  "It's nice to have people who stand out like here to help the team out."

Next season the senior will take her scoring prowess to Mercyhurst to continue her lacrosse career.

"It's an awesome feeling. I think working and always pushing myself and having everyone push me it feels great to have the support I have to play at the next level."
