Former Southern Regional lacrosse standout Dylan Jinks has had a productive career thus far at the University of Hartford. On March 3, he joined an exclusive group, becoming the 23rd Hawk in the program’s history to record 100 career points.

The junior attacker scored a pair of goals in a 14-10 loss to Harvard, which led 6-3 late in the first half before Jinks delivered career points 99 and 100 with two unanswered goals to pull the Hawks within one with 1:06 to go. Jinks is the third player on the current roster to reach 100 career points, the others being seniors Justin Huggins and Griffin Feiner.

So far this season, Jinks has scored in each of the Hawks’ first four contests, scoring once against St. John’s to go along with two assists on Feb. 17, three times against Bryant on Feb. 24, and twice against Fairfield on Feb. 27. He also added an assist against Bryant and Fairfield.

For his career, Jinks has 56 goals and 44 assists. During a freshman season in which he was named the America East Rookie of the Year, he tallied 29 goals and 29 assists. Last season, he scored 19 goals and gave away 11 assists.

Southern Girls Relay
Swims to 25th in State

At the NJSIAA Swimming Championships, the difference between a first-place and the 25th-place relays often comes down to seconds. On March 3, the Southern Regional 200-yard freestyle relay of Hannah Skimmons, Jacquelyn Kilcommons, Kaylyn Iusan and Abigail Malandro finished nearly four seconds ahead of its seeded time to place 25th amid a stacked field of 69 teams.

The Rams’ quartet clocked a time of 1:42.88, missing a shot at qualifying for the finals heats the next day by .05, as the crew from Haddonfield managed to slip through with a time of 1:42.83. Bernards and Ridge each tied for the 22nd spot at 1:42.66. Ocean City qualified first for the finals in 1:35.92 and ended up as the state champion with a finals time of 1:34.61, a new meet record.

Southern’s squad was seeded 58th, but all four girls clocked personal-best splits and swam to the second-fastest 200 free relay time in the program’s history, according to head coach Bill Entrikin.
