She also leads 3A with 56 points.
Elsewhere, Rachel Craft added two goals and an assist for St. Mary's, which won its sixth consecutive game.
Woodland Park 26, Mitchell 4, 3 innings
At Mitchell: It was a long three innings - more fun for Woodland Park (4-7 overall, 2-1 4A Colorado Springs Metro League) than Mitchell (0-10, 0-4).
Keegan Harman went 4 for 4 with four RBIs and a home run, Logan Watters went 2 for 4 with five RBIs, and Kayden Osborn gave up only three hits in three innings in the Panthers' throttling over the Marauders.
Woodland Park had 18 hits.

Palmer 10, Legend 4
At Legend: It was a day to honor the staple of the Palmer Terrors' lacrosse program: Sam Horning.
And things couldn't have gone better for the occasion. Horning scored three goals and added two assists to give the Terrors their fourth straight win after the senior signed to play lacrosse at Division-II Wheeling Jesuit (W.Va) University minutes before the game.
Noah Smith added three goals, DJ Stanec had two and Caleb Espinoza had 17 saves in net for Palmer (6-2, 4-1 Douglas County League), which holds second place in the league standings after finishing 6-9 in 2013.
The Terrors face Pine Creek at Garry Berry Stadium on Friday.
