Can you say four-peat? Not many teams can win one championship, let alone two and don’t even think about three but four? Well the Lady Cavalier Lacrosse team is looking to make history and solidified themselves as a dynasty.
Under the tutelage of head coach Jake Neary the Lady Cavs have compiled a record of 12-2 with a most recent demolishing of Catholic University this past Monday by a score of 19-6. They are riding a ten-game winning streak with their most impressive win coming against Ursinus College on April 19 by a score of 13-10. Yesterday, the Lady Cavs took on Ceder Crest for the right to play for the PAC Championship this upcoming Saturday against either Neumann or Eastern. Due to printing, the score is not available.
According to senior Angela Grassa the team has come a long way since the beginning of the year. “All of us, as teammates are peaking at the right time.” Lead by Grassa and fellow seniors Heather Stinger and Monica Paolucci they have set the tone of champions to the younger players. “We had a challenging season but have grown together to form a strong unit,” said Stinger.
On the offense side of the ball, juniors Nicole Schultz and Tracey King along with sophomore Kelli Romano have pick up the slack. An added bonus has come from the “Ridley Connection” of freshman Missy Modesti and Maureen McQuade.
Defensively, Paolucci and junior Adrienne Maiocco have carried the load while senior Christie Malone has been unstoppable between the pipes. Grassa points out that Malone this year has been, “incredible.”
The team knows what is expected of them and they will be tested. For the seniors of this team, it could be a sweet day as they approach a milestone in Cabrini College Athletic history.
To all the students, faculty and staff here at Cabrini College make your way over to the Lower Athletic field this Saturday at noon because you might be a part of history.
