The women’s basketball team lost four straight games over winter break, but has since responded with a five-game winning streak, bringing its record to 8-7.

After a few improvements the Lady Cavaliers are now the only undefeated team in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference. “They were able to achieve so high because all the girls on the team work hard and are dedicated to the sport,” Melissa Landrin, sophomore team manager, said.

Losing to St. Mary’s, Widener, Swarthmore, and Delaware Valley, the Lady Cavalries never gave up. “Each game was hard fought just losing by points in the finals minutes,” Landrin said.

The Lady Cavs did not allow the four game losing streak to get them down. Freshman Jackie Yoder, said, “The winter break allowed the team to bond and brought us closer and because of that we were able to come back and win five straight games.”

“In the beginning of the year our team lacked experience but now all of our hard work and dedication paid off because our record is over 500,” freshman guard Jen Wessell said.

Winning against Neumann, Wesley, Cedar Crest, Eastern, and Arcadia the lady Cavs improved their record to 7-0 in the PAC. Yoder said “the team really came together and ended up successful.”

With nine games to go, “our team is looking stronger and stronger each day, if they continue to work together their dedication is to sure pay off for them,” Landrin said.

The Lady Cavs continue their season this Saturday against Gwnedd-Mercy College at 2 p.m. The team looks to continue with their winning tradition ending the season with nine of their last 10 games against PAC rivals.
