Paige Selenski is nine points away from tying the Virginia program record for most points in a career and eight goals shy of tying the record for most goals in a career. Meredith Thorpe (1995-98) currently owns both records with 230 career points and 101 career goals. Selenski comes into the game with 221 career points and 93 career goals.
