Most students this time of year are planning trips to Cancun and the Dominican Republic. However, Cabrini College’s spring sports’ teams will be away getting ready for their up-and-coming season.

It seems that all the teams are going south, just not that far south. The spring teams can generally be found in Florida or the Carolinas.

For spring break the women’s lacrosse team will be heading off to St. Petersburg, Fla. The women will be gone for the entire week. They will be taking a plane on Saturday, Feb. 28, and will return on Saturday, March 6.

While in Florida the women will be attending a camp where they can train for the upcoming season. Cabrini will be the only team attending the camp this year. Sophomore Mary Oschell said, “I’m glad we are the only team going because we will have all the trainers to ourselves to be really prepared for the season.”

The team will be doing two-a-day practices for the four or five days it is in Florida. On the other days the women are free to relax. Hopefully the camp will get the team prepared for its first game on Monday, March 13 against Alvernia.

The women’s softball team will also be heading to Florida. However, the softball team will not be going to camp to train; they will be competing in a softball tournament.

The team also leaves by plane on Saturday, Feb. 28, and will come home the following Sunday, March 7. Sophomore Amy Welch said, “We have a game everyday except for the Thursday we are away.” The girls’ regular season does not start until Sunday, March 12, against Lynchburg.

The men’s lacrosse team will be traveling to Greensboro, N.C. This is the second time the lacrosse team has gone away over spring break.

The team will be also be leaving on Saturday, Feb. 28, and will be spending about four days in North Carolina. A majority of the time will be spent practicing for the big game against Greensboro, which is also a Division III school.

Senior Sean Gracey said, “I like going away for spring break since the weather isn’t so great at home.” The men’s lacrosse team’s regular season does not start until March 6.

The men’s tennis team is the team is going to South Carolina over spring break. The team will be competing in a tournament in Hilton Head.

Unlike the rest of the teams, the men’s tennis team will be leaving on Friday, Feb 27, and will be coming back on the following Saturday. While in South Carolina the men will compete in four matches and when they are not playing they will be practicing.

Assistant coach Scott Giblin said, “I expect the team to get a lot of hitting in and some good match play, but I hope they have fun while doing it.” The men’s official season will begin on Wednesday, March 15, against Wesley College at Wesley.
