However, where Russell truly made her mark was on the lacrosse field, where she was a four-time NEW 8 All-Conference selection, the 1994 Conference Rookie of the Year, and the NEW 8 Player of the Year in 1995, 1996, and 1997. She was named All-New England Honorable Mention in 1994, All-New England Second Team in 1995, All-New England First Team in 1996, and All-New England First Team and All-America Second Team in 1997. A team captain as a senior, she is still Babson's all-time leader with 213 goals and 252 points while also ranking fifth with 39 career assists. She is the only player in program history to eclipse 200 goals and 250 points in her career. During her four seasons, Russell led the lacrosse squad to an overall record of 38-19, including a 14-2 mark, the NEW 8 regular season title, and the program's first-ever ECAC Tournament berth in 1996 -- the finest season in team history.
