Junior co-captain and champ

Being able to say that you are a champion isn’t a privilege that everyone gets to experience in their lifetime, especially on a college level. Caitlin Scott, a junior marketing and graphic design major, can say those words proudly these days.

Scott, a team captain who helped steer Cabrini Women’s Tennis to a PAC championship this fall, can now reflect on a job well done. She remembers how far she has come since she first picked up a racket in the 7th grade. “It started as a town recreational thing, and then I got really, really into it. I started taking lessons with a private coach and got pretty competitive from there,” Scott said.

She picked up on the sport very quickly, taking her talents to Bishop Eustace Prep in Pennsauken, New Jersey.

By the time Scott had graduated in 2003, she collected first team All-Parochial and first team All-Conference honors in both her junior and senior seasons.

When it came time to pick a college, Scott’s reasons for picking Cabrini were fairly common. “Cabrini recruited me, but no more than any of the other schools did,” Scott said. “I really just loved the campus from the minute I came to look at the school, and it was close to home.”

The women’s tennis team is happy with the decision she made, and for good reason. Caitlin accumulated a 12-3 record in singles play, along with a 13-2 record in doubles play.

She attributes the team’s accomplishments, however, to her teammates. “Our team was so successful because of the girls that made it up, we wouldn’t have won without each and every one of them,” Scott said. “Even the girls who don’t play on a regular basis, they supported us and cheered for us during every match,” Scott added.

This complete team effort produced an overall record of 12-5, with an undefeated 11-0 record in the PAC. Next year looks promising for the team as they look to defend their newly acquired crown. With 10 players from this year’s roster returning, defending the PAC title seems like a very attainable goal.

“With a team like ours, we can undoubtedly repeat if all of the girls come back,” Scott said. It will certainly be a lot easier with the senior leadership of Scott next fall, complimenting a roster of very talented athletes.
