GRANVILLE, Ohio--  Denison set a new school record for points in a game and tied the school record for assists after a 22-0 victory over Hiram College.  On Senior Day, Denison's trio of Claire Ludlow, Reid Hirschey and Annie McMahon assumed the starring roles, combining for seven goals and seven assists.

Denison put the pedal to the metal early, scoring 10 goals in the first 11 minutes of play to institute the continuous running clock rule.  McMahon assisted on four of Denison's 15 first half goals.  She finished with a career-high six assists, one shy of the program record shared by three individuals.

Hirschey scored four of her five goals in the first half and rookie Lee Hayman added a hat trick.  In the second half, Denison scored seven times and did not allow a shot from the Terriers.

The Big Red outshot Hiram 37-2.  They caused 17 turnovers, led by Kiely Noonan's three while holding a 15-9 advantage in draw controls.

Hiram goalie Rachel Metcalf finished with six saves in 60 minutes.  Becca Jones got the start for Denison and made one save.  Hannah Magarian played the second half but did not face a shot.

While McMahon led the way with six points, Hirschey and Leah Israel followed with five.  Ludlow had four (2 goals, 2 assists) while Hayman, Maddy Heher, Noonan and Claudia Rafi all followed with three.

Denison finished with 39 points in the game.  The previous record of 38 was set against Waynesburg in 2012 and against Allegheny in 1998.  The 17 assists matched the program record set in the same game against Waynesburg in 2012.

Denison improves to 9-3 and 5-0 in the North Coast Athletic Conference.  Hiram drops to 5-8 and 0-4 in conference play.  The Big Red return to action on Tuesday (April 18) when they travel to Wooster for a 6:30 p.m. start.
