The Lady Cavaliers are on a 12-game winning streak that they hope to continue through the remainder of the season. With a record of 17-3 the Cavaliers are well on their way to a successful season with only four games left in the regular season.
“We knew it would take a lot of hard work to be the team we are today,” sophomore forward Megan Decker said. “Every time we step on the court, whether it’s at practice or a game, we work to make each other better. Our team is dedicated to winning. We have come a long way and were only halfway there.
It’s no surprise that with the record they have, the team is feeling confident in team dynamics. Everything is clicking at the right time for the Lady Cavs lately. The team’s shooting and defense has improved immensely as the season has proceeded and rank among the conference’s best.
“We have a strong defensive however offensively teams are intimidated by us because they don’t know who to really pay attention to,” senior forward Melissa Kudzmas said. “Offensively anyone can step up and score. We are well-rounded.”
The games that are being won by the women’s teams are not by any means “nail biters.” The opposition is being blown out of the water by Cabrini.
The impeccable shooting and defense that the women are putting forth is definitely showing their talent and how far they have come from past seasons.
“We have really come together as a team this year, junior forward Colleen Stewart said. “Our chemistry has been beyond measurable but it is what we really needed. Our defense is what has won us games and we are really looking forward to our journey throughout the rest of the CSAC’s.”
“Offense wins games, defense wins championships,” freshman forward Kristina Startare said.
We can look forward to what the Lady Cavs will accomplish in the last conference games and into the playoffs. It has been three seasons since the Lady Cavs claimed the CSAC title and with the way this team is rolling, the sky’s the limit for this group.
The Lady Cavs return to the hardwood on Saturday, Feb. 2, when they face Centenary College at 1 p.m.
