Standout Emily Hawryschuk set to return to Coach Gait’s team in 2021

SYRACUSE, NY –  Syracuse senior Emily Hawryschuk, one of the leading scorers in Division I women’s lacrosse the past two seasons, will return to the Orange in 2021.

The Victor, NY, native ranks sixth on Syracuse’s career scoring list (249) and all-time goals scored ledger (205). Hawryschuk recorded her 200th career goal in the Orange’s win at Maryland and posted six or more points in six of eight games in 2020.
