With the field hockey season under way, the 2003 Lady Cavs have begun the fight for starting positions on the field, and a winning season in the books.

Despite the dissatisfaction of having lost it’s first Pennsylvania Athletic Conference game (6-2) versus the College Misericordia, junior Megan Reich believes that the team still had a good game.

“We put up a good fight, but they got some lucky goals,” Reich said.

During the first game, one of the team’s co-captains, senior Maureen McQuade, injured her wrist and the team is not sure at this point when she will be returning to the field. Junior, Missy Modesti is out with an injured knee. Both players contribution to the team is being greatly missed.

Senior Stephanie Heinz commented about the loss of Modesti, “She was our starting sweeper, so it stinks she’s hurt. She’s amazing. However, Mariel Murtha is filling in for her and she is doing an outstanding job,” Heinz said.

With these early season injuries, the other players on the team are stepping up and pushing themselves hard for opportunities to run onto the field with a starting job. Heinz said,”

The freshmen in particular are very talented. They are keeping the upperclassmen on their feet.”

Sarah Young, a sophomore transfer student said, “we all want a starting position and we are pushing ourselves to our highest potential. Everyone on the team works hard and sticks together. We can do that because we all want to win and contribute something new to the team.”

One of the many people that will contribute to leading the Lady Cavs field hockey team into a winning year is coach Jackie Neary, who is now at the start of her eighth year.

“She’s a great motivator. She uses what knowledge she has gained as a player and a coach to help us win games,” Reich said.

“Jackie keeps us together after a tough loss, such as the one to Misericordia. She always has faith in us,” Heinz said.

As for what can be expect later in the season, “Cabrini can expect some good games and well-earned wins as long as we play to the best of our ability. We have a lot of talent on this team. We will do great,” Heinz said.
