The sport is women’s lacrosse; the team with the second most Pennsylvania Atheletic Conference wins and the most consecutive wins. With a total of six PAC championships, the team dominates the field when it play. Each year, teams lose a few seniors and each year teams gain some freshmen. Not knowing whether or not the freshman’s each year will be good, they still are a team and together they help each other out.

Tami Scanlon a freshman from Academy Park, Sharon Hill, Pa., never played lacrosse in high school but has played field hockey and also participates in it here at Cabrini. “I like playing lacrosse, sometimes its frustrating because they all know it and I don’t,” Scanlon said.

Scanlon decided to play lacrosse for Cabrini, one because the same coach for field hockey, Jackie Neary, coaches the lacrosse team, and another reason is that Scanlom has a cousin Jessi Valerio who played both sports while attending Cabrini.

Scanlon feels that lacrosse is not that different from playing field hockey and the girls are willing to help me learn. Scanlon would rather be playing lacrosse than not play any sport at all.

In high school, Scanlon was a starter in field hockey and was named to the all Delaware County team her senior year. “They have done great in the past, and look good for this season,” Scanlon said.
