Senior Spotlight: Cara Facchina
April 16, 2014
This past week marked the final home games for the 2014 Buckeye women’s lacrosse senior class with Ohio State claiming back-to-back Top 10 victories for the first time in OSU history. The 2014 senior class now has 40 wins total – which is currently tied for third-most in school history.
Over the past few days, the four seniors have looked back on their time wearing the Scarlet and Gray and today we round out the senior spotlights with 2014 captain Cara Facchina, a native of Glenwood, Md. The OSU attack has tallied 108 career points, 59 goals and 49 assists. Facchina surpassed the 100-point milestone with a pair of assists in the home contest vs. Florida. This year, she has collected five goals and 11 assists in 11 games and has helped an offense that ranks in the Top 25 in the nation in scoring and points. A four-time OSU Scholar-Athlete, she plans to graduate this December with a degree in industrial and systems engineering.
