Cabrini’s sporting events have been affected by the tragedy in the United States. Four teams were supposed to play on Sept. 11th. Their games were either postponed or canceled.

Women’s soccer was supposed to play at Immaculata College. The game was postponed until the Sept. 21st. Cabrini won the make-up game 4-0.

The women’s volleyball game for Tuesday against Cedar Crest College was played the following day. The Lady Cavaliers lost the game 3-2.

Cabrini’s tennis team was supposed to travel to Alvernia College. The game will be made up on Oct. 3rd at 4 p.m. at Alvernia.

The junior varsity field hockey team was to play at Philadelphia College of Bible. It will not be made up. Due to scheduling difficulties and the fact that it was a scrimmage, not a game.

During a time when all professional sports were basically shut down for at least a week, Cabrini sports moved on. The overall feeling of athletes was that it was appropriate not to play on Sept. 11th because many people were upset and could not focus on a game.

Coaches talked to their players and asked them questions about how they were impacted by the attack. After everything was said it was time for everyone to go back to his or her normal routines.

For a majority of the players, getting back onto the field was what they needed. Jamie Matozzo of the women’s soccer team said: “It was good to have soccer to get our minds off of the attacks.”
