Despite allowing two runs, Cavalier pitchers dominated on the mound as they allowed just one hit on route to a comfortable 11-2 final.

Game Two: Cabrini 12, Marywood 5
The nightcap included more offense between the two groups as the Pacers utilized 11 hits for five runs, however it ended up being insufficient as the Cavaliers scored 12 runs, backboned by a five runs scored in the second inning.

Tyler Norris, a senior exercise science major, said, “We have been on a roll this season and I think it is because of how hard we have worked throughout the off season and the season we are in currently.”

Norris has been on the team since the start of the program and has been there for the ups and down.

Norris’s teammates have looked up to him as a leader on the team considering his work ethic and his commitment to the team.

Justin Henry, a sophomore business management major, said, “Tyler has been a role model for our whole team. He leads by example and motivates our whole team no matter what.”

With leadership like Norris’s the team looks to continue their success on the field as playoffs are about to begin.

Norris said, “I’m not surprised getting the number one seed in the conference.We are easily one of the hardest working teams in division three.”

With a record of 29-7 the team has proven many wrong and look to make a statement within the conference.

Mack Mckisson, a sophomore biology major, said, “We as a team have definitely turned some heads but we want to be the last team standing at the end of the day.”

Norris and other upperclassman look to make their senior year one to remember and one to go down in history.

“To win a conference championship, especially after 3 years of becoming a program, would be unbelievable. We just wanna bring more hardware back to Cabrini,” Norris said. “Our success comes from our amazing coaches and the passion we all have for the game.”
