DeGeorge picks up goal, assist in first game with Ohio State
Anchorage’s Clair DeGeorge is at a new school putting up the same type of production she did at her old school.
The Ohio State grad transfer from Bemidji State had a goal and an assist during her team’s four-goal outburst in the second period to highlight a 6-0 win over St. Thomas in Columbus, Ohio.
DeGeorge scored a goal to give the third-ranked Buckeyes a 2-0 lead. Four and a half minutes later she assisted on another score to make it 4-0.
Her two points increased her career total to 81, making her what is believed to be the seventh Alaska woman to reach the 80-point benchmark at the NCAA D1 level.
DeGeorge posted recorded 28 goals, 51 assists for 79 points in 128 career games at Bemidji State, where she’s tied for 10th on the school’s all-time assists list and tied for 12th in career points.
She needs five more points to match Jordan Smelker’s 86 points from 2010 to 2014 at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Smelker, of Anchorage, ranks sixth on Alaska’s all-time scoring list.
Ambria Thomas of Fairbanks is No. 1 with 201 points at Minnesota from 1997 to 2001.
