The Cabrini women’s volleyball dominated the court in both of their games on Saturday, Oct. 26, improving their Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) standing to 23-4. The Cavaliers won both of their matches against Rutgers-Camden and University of Scranton.
These Matches for Margo at the Nerney Field House were in support of Team BamIt, an organization that raises awareness for cervical cancer. The seats were painted in a sea of green as people came out to show their support.
The Lady Cavs came out strong in the first match of the day against Rutgers-Camden. The Cavs quickly took control and came out with a 25-7 win in the first set. The second set was also taken by a 25-11 victory over Rutgers.
The third set brought a lot more action to the court as milestones were reached and a tight score kept both sides fighting. The set brought with it tie scores at certain points but ended with the Blue and White taking the lead.
Senior Danielle Carrozza also achieved a big milestone in the third set—her 1,000-career kill. “I was hurt last season and missed about 10 matches so I wanted to work extra hard to make sure I got it before graduating,” Carrozza said. “I obviously wouldn’t have been able to do it without the team as a whole playing together and so well all day.” Carrozza also said that it felt amazing to have been able to accomplish one of her main goals at home court for her last season.
The first match was also met with 16 kills from Carrozza, 10 kills from freshman Kelly Guarino, 35 assists from sophomore Cassidy Koenig and 15 digs from senior Sophia Sokolovich.
The match ended with the Cavs taking a 28-26 win in the third set, giving a 3-0 win against Rutgers-Camden.
“It felt good to win yesterday; both matches were exciting to play in and it was great to see a few of the player’s reach milestones in their career, such as Danielle getting her 1,000 kill,” freshman Kelly Guarino said. “We always work hard during practice and it pays off during the games—it’s always a good day when you win.”
Results for the Cavs were no less impressive in their second game of the day against the University of Scranton. The Cavaliers in a 25-14 victory took the first set away while the second set was met with a struggle. The Cavs eventually found their rhythm though, winning 25-22 in the second set and 25-14 in the third.
This game gave the Blue and White their second win of the day in a 3-0 victory over the University of Scranton.
“Any out of conference win for us is great and we build off those; it’s almost playoff time and I’m really happy with the way we’re playing right now,” Carrozza said. “We’re coming together and staying together as a team the whole time.”
The team has their next game Oct. 30 against Keystone at 5 p.m. and Baptist Bible at 7 p.m. in some of their last few games of the season.
