The women’s team totaled a score of 992 point within the three day event. The men’s team totaled 837.5 points taking the championship by over 150 points.

Women’s Atlantic East Rookie of the year award winner, Tara McCloskey, said, “We worked so hard all off season and pushed ourselves during our season, it’s great to see all that work payoff on both sides of the pool.”

The Cavaliers won many more awards such as, Marc Consiglio (Men’s Rookie of the year), Cameron Mousley (Men’s swimmer of the year) and Head coach Cindy Ikeler (Men’s swim coach of the year).

McCloskey won the 200 IM for her individual gold medal and Consiglio won the 200 Breaststroke for his individual gold medal.

Mousley won all three of his individual events while also helping his team in several relay victories, including the recording breaking 400 yard freestyle relay. Mously had himself a year with breaking the program’s records in the 1,000 yard freestyle and the 1,650 yard freestyle.

Mousley, a sophomore exercise science and health promotion major, said, “From the start of the season we dreamed non stop of this moment, especially after the amount of work we put in, and to see it all come together is amazing.”

Junior Lauren Finnegan started the success early when she smashed two program records one in the 1,650 yard freestyle finishing with a time of 18:32.35 with a 1000 yard split of 11:16.74.

The women’s team won seven event championships and the men won nine events.The men’s relay teams set program records in all five of the meet’s relays.

Marc Consiglio, freshman accounting major, said, “From the moment I got on campus the team welcomed me with open arms. We put in countless hours of hard work together. We won as a Team and that is all that

The team continued to grow throughout the season as they rewrote the record board and won the first Atlantic East Conference Championship. The team looks forward to next season as they look to continue their success.

Many teams don’t get to say that they ended the season with a win. Cabrini’s team look to regain their two titles, break more records and create more memories as a team.
