It was a frustrating day for the Virginia women's lacrosse team Saturday in Chapel Hill, where the 'Hoos season ended in the NCAA Tournament round of eight with a loss to North Carolina.

One bright spot for the Cavaliers in the 13-9 loss was the play of first year attacker Kelly Boyd. Boyd had a hat trick on Saturday, scoring three goals on three shots.

Overall this season, she led all Cavalier freshmen with 14 points. Six of those came during UVa's NCAA Tournament run, capped of by a three point performance against the Tar Heels.

"Super excited to see Kelly, just a first year, kind of go out with three goals with three shots," said head coach Julie Myers. "Definitely proud of what she's done, and she's going to have a whole lot of work to do again next year as we say goodbye to some of these attackers."

"It's definitely going to be sad saying goodbye to all the fourth years, but they've made it a really good year and I think they showed a lot of heart," Boyd said of the final game of her freshman season. "In the second half of the season we could've just, I don't know, just let the season go, but we really picked it back up and I think we showed that we're capable of a lot, and I'm hopeful for the future."
