FRESNO STATEf. - The Fresno State women's lacrosse team honored two seniors, Kasandra Martinson and Callie Seidman before Wednesday's game, but the Bulldogs came up short against Saint Mary's 20-6 at Bulldog Stadium.
Prior to the game, Martinson and Seidman were joined by their families on the field, given flowers and framed jerseys as they took the field at Bulldog Stadium for one final time. The two were freshman on the inaugural women's lacrosse team that began playing in 2009.
"It's been a magical four years here," Seidman said. "I'll never forget the time spent with my teammates and everyone involved at Fresno State."
Seidman capped off her career by scoring a career-high two goals Wednesday. Martinson had one groundball and one caused turnover on the defensive side.
"It's been fun to play besides Callie all four years and to share this with her," Martinson said. "We will never forget winning the first game for the program and starting something from scratch."
Fresno State (2-10, 0-6 MPSF) was led overall in scoring by Seidman on Wednesday and Paula Badali, Briana Hetherington, Lauren Natale and Marcy Levatino all scored one goal.
Taylor Fiehler had six ground balls and two caused turnovers, Seidman had three draw controls, Holly Cisneros had two ground balls and Badali added two draw controls.
The Bulldogs came out strong to start the second half, scoring four straight goals to cut the lead to 10-6, but Saint Mary's (3-10, 1-5 MPSF) answered with 10 goals for the final score.
Fresno State wraps up the season Saturday against UC Davis with a 4 p.m. start time in Davis, Calif.
