Senior attackman Casey Grugan (Ridley) became Cabrini’s all-time leader in career points after collecting three goals and five assists in a 15-8 victory over visiting Kenyon College Saturday.
Grugan’s fifth assist of the contest at the 11:04 mark of the fourth quarter stood for the 257th point of his Cavaliers’ career, surpassing former Cavalier Scott Reimer’s (2006-09) all-time mark of 256 points. Grugan added one more tally on a goal with 6:02 remaining.
Grugan now owns 258 career points on 155 goals and 103 assists. He also extended his consecutive points streak to 62 games, the longest active Division III streak in the country, and his consecutive goals streak to 59 games, an NCAA Division III record.
