She has 77 career points (27 goals and 50 assists). During the three-game stretch last week DiGirolamo also had eight shots on goal and seven blocks. She ranks fifth on the CHA record list for points by a defenseman and is the 10th defensemen in CHA history to record 50 career assists. Syracuse has a strong presence on the CHA’s top 10 list for all-time assists by defenseman with five. DiGirolamo joined Akane Hosoyamada (51), Allie Munroe (51), Lindsay Eastwood (52) and Nicole Renault (58).



Senior assistant captain Abby Moloughney has 79 career points (32 goals and 47 assists), which ranks ninth on the Syracuse career points record list. Her 47 career assists ties for 10th in the Orange record books.

Orange alumni, fans and friends are invited to share in a year-long celebration of 50 years of Syracuse University women’s athletics. Events and special recognition of all female student-athletes who have donned the Block S to represent Syracuse University and the Athletics Department since 1971-72 will be held throughout the 2021-22 seasons. As we celebrate this history, we acknowledge those who have gone before us to set the standard we strive to achieve today so we can pave the way for the future. We reflect on the history of women in sport, admire their sacrifices, recognize their contributions and accomplishments, and honor their legacy.
