Edwards-Roberson ’22, Cropper ’21 Lead Scoring

The Keydets got off to an exciting start to the season by defeating nearby Southern Virginia University by a 5-0 shutout victory. During the season, VMI was led by Whitney Edwards-Roberson ’22, who tallied nine points off four goals and one assist, while Kiley Cropper ’21, forward, totaled five points on two goals and one assist.
