Kristiansen faced 40 shots on goal and made 24 saves on Saturday, March 3 against Colorado Mesa University. Her 24 saves set a new ASC single-game record, beating the previous mark by eight saves. Kristiansen was also named the Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (WILA) Women’s Defensive Player of the Week. Saturday’s game marked the Grizzlies first WILA action, where they fell to the Mavericks 9-16. ASC now holds a 0-1 record overall and in league play.
