By now, you should be more than familiar with our series of regularly updating leaderboards for various Marquette Golden Eagles sports accomplishments. Keep checking back to that link in the previous sentence for our charts as the seasons continue to churn through history and MU’s various teams continue to create new memories and accomplishments.
This rundown is going to look at men’s lacrosse and the record for career points.
As you can probably tell, the season is already underway as this is being typed up. Marquette is two games into the season, and so we’re already getting updates to the top 10. Well sort of, at least. Marquette currently has no active players in the top 10 for career points, although it seems that they will very soon.
Connor McClelland currently leads the team with seven points on the year, and that’s bumped him up to 42 career points. That has him just eight away from tying and nine away from passing Blaine Fleming for the 10th most points in MU history. If McClelland ends up leading the team by the end of the season, rising into the top eight is almost assured, maybe even the top seven. That’s about the upper end of what he can do this year as well as for his career since he’s a senior. Same goes for Peter Henkhaus, who has three points already to get to 35 on the year.
We’ll also include Andrew Orsini and Ryan Fazio on the list here. Orsini is a junior with 30 career points after tacking on one already this year, while Fazio is a senior with 26 career points after getting two more to start 2020. It seems reasonable that both of these guys can chase down Fleming and his 50 career points by the time this season is over, so we’ll keep an eye on that.
I’m not quite prepared to put anyone else on the list right now, but we’ll keep our eyes on a few more guys. Sophomore Holden Patterson is building on seven points during his first year on campus with five more already. Freshmen Devon Cowan (6 points) and Chris Kirschner (4 points) have made waves early, but it’s a long way from here to 50 points for those guys. Marquette hasn’t had a 50 point player since 2016, so nothing’s guaranteed, no matter what kind of style of lacrosse head coach Andrew Stimmel might want to play.
Here’s how the chart stands at the end of the 2021 season.
