GREENSBORO, N.C. – Sophomore Audrey Helfenbein scored a school-record 13 points in Guilford College's 23-0 lacrosse victory over visiting Sweet Briar College Saturday.

Helfenbein, an attacker, scored a season-high five goals and a career-best eight assists to best Lily Colley's '14 former record of 12 points set March 15, 2014, versus Randolph-Macon College.

Helfenbein scored 38 seconds into the match when she rolled the cage to find a wide-open net. She scored again 36 seconds later off a Nia Gill assist and had a hat trick by the 26:06 mark of the first half. Helfenbein scored five goals and three assists in the opening period, which helped the hosts to a 14-0 advantage.
