The No. 1 recruiting class in the nation belongs to North Carolina’s women’s lacrosse team. And when there is so much star power in a freshman class, it may be easy for one to get lost in the pack.
In the first two games of the season, freshman Carly Reed had not put up the stat line she was used to in high school. After tallying 475 goals in high school, Reed had only two goals through two games.
But in UNC’s 24-6 win against Canisius, Reed showed exactly what she is capable of, scoring goals with ease, contributing early offense in the blowout victory.
She tallied four goals in the first half and then added another with just fewer than 10 minutes left in the game. Reed said her standout performance is something she has been working toward.
“It’s definitely a good feeling coming off the field with five goals,” Reed said. “Today it just kinda clicked.”
