Medina High graduate and Pfeiffer College senior Blade Garlow broke the school’s single season lacrosse goal scoring record this week.

Garlow scored a career tying nine goals in a 23-13 win over Brevard to set a new Pfeiffer season record of 67 goals breaking the old mark of 62.  Garlow scored the record setter early in the second period and finished the first half with six goals helping Pfeiffer build up an 11-4 lead.

Less than two weeks ago Garlow broke the 100 goal career mark when he netted five goals in Pfeiffer’s narrow 14-13 win over Ferrum.

Garlow now has career totals of 118 goals and 66 assists.

Pfeiffer is now 10-3 on the season.
