Bishop Mcguinness Women’s Lacrosse Player In NCHSAA Record Book


KERNERSVILLE—Megan Shortt of Bishop McGuinness High School has established herself as one of the top women’s lacrosse players in the state, and the school recently submitted a whole batch of performances with appropriate documentation that are good for inclusion in the NCHSAA Record Book.

Short had 122 goals for the 2011 season, a mark that had not previously been submitted, and scored 116 in the Lady Villains’ just completed season that would be two of the top four individual scoring seasons all-time in the state. She also tallied 63 assists during the 2012 campaign, third-best all-time.

Shortt also has several performance listings, including three different times she has scored 12 or more goals in one game. Her biggest individual output was 14, and her team needed all of them as Bishop beat West Forsyth on March 8, 2011 by an 18-16 count.

The Bishop McGuinness standout also has five occasions where she tallied 14 or 15 points in a game, goals and assists combined.

We are grateful to Bishop McGuinness for its thorough documentation of all these performance. As appropriate, records are also forwarded to the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) for national consideration.
