With the talent and determination to win, Lacie Doubet, freshman business major, shows up to each game ready to throw elbows and whack sticks. The physical nature of lacrosse requires going hard at practice and to never slack off.
Playing just 15 games and scoring 58 points for the Cabrini women’s lacrosse team during her freshman year, Doubet has become a threat as a Cavalier.
Doubet was debating whether she wanted to attend West Chester University or Cabrini College.
“I came here to play lacrosse,” Doubet said. “Jackie is so easy going. I wanted to play for her.”
Head coach Jackie Neary kept eyes on Lacie throughout high school.
“I knew she was going to be a great player,” Neary said. “I had high hopes for her.”
Doubet’s parents grew up with Neary and encouraged her to come to Cabrini College. “My parents wanted me to be happy and get an education,” Doubet said.
“I am not sure what I want to do when I get older,” Doubet said. “With Cabrini’s great programs I know when I graduate I will receive a successful job.”
Before every game Lacie’s dad texts her with an inspirational quote to get her motivated for competition. “My parents haven’t missed a game yet,” Doubet said.
Lacie went to Ridley High School with senior attack Jacky McDermott.
“She is an amazing player and you can’t even tell she is a freshman,” McDermott said.
“I receive a lot of assists from Jacky,” Doubet said. “Her passes are right on target.”
Going to Florida on spring break is when the lacrosse players bonded and created an off-field relationship.
A lot of the players are local and used to play against each other in high school.
“Her personality is always positive,” Sarah Means, sophomore attack, said. “She keeps our heads up if we are losing and keeps calm when we are winning.”
Doubet is a great addition to the Cabrini College women’s lacrosse team. The Lady Cavs wouldn’t be where they are in the season without her.
“I didn’t realize how big of a bonus it was going to be having her on the team,” Neary said “I am glad to have her as a student and athlete.”
Doubet led the Cavaliers with a career best seven goals and an assist in Saturday’s 21-18 win against Gwynedd-Mercy College.
“She is doing a great job as a rookie,” Chrissy Pasquariello, junior midfielder, said. “We couldn’t ask her to do anymore.”
The women’s lacrosse team is set to face Gwynedd-Mercy College in a semifinal game on Wednesday, May 2.
“We are now second in the conference going into playoffs. With Coach Neary’s guidance we are going to play with 110 percent heart and have no regrets when coming off the field,” Doubet said. “I know that if our team plays to their full potential then there’s a definite possibility that we can bring home the CSAC championship win for our blue and white Cavaliers.”
