Marcius Leading Nation in Assists Per Game
WASHINGTON, Pa. -- Washington & Jefferson junior women’s soccer player Chrissy Marcius (North Huntingdon, Pa./Norwin) has moved into the top spot in all of NCAA Division III in assists per game.
Marcius sits in a three-way tie with Melissa Gelardi of Staten Island and Erin Hench of Messiah with an average of 1.00 assists per game.
Her 10 assists are second in the country, as she trails Joanie Snyder of Lynchburg by just one.
Marcius has tallied at least one assist in eight of the Presidents’ 10 games this season. She is tied with sophomore Holly Shipley (Scottdale, Pa./Southmoreland) for the team points lead with 18. She leads the team with 23 shots on goal and is tied for third with four goals.
Marcius is seventh all-time at W&J with 14 career assists and ranks sixth with 56 total points. The 10 assists are already the third highest single-season total in school history, Only Nicole Bosley (‘01) and Shipley have more in a single season. Bosley, a recent inductee into the W&J Athletic Hall of Fame, had 11 assists in 2000, while Shipley equaled that mark last year.
Marcius will try to improve on her assist total when W&J hosts Westminster on Wednesday at Alexandre Stadium at 5:00 pm.
