“Standing there knowing I couldn’t play was making me a horrible person to be around” Pierre Archambault, junior lacrosse player, said. Pierre was sidelined his freshman and sophomore years due to injury. After a slight ACL tear in his left knee he made the decision to red shirt his freshman season of lacrosse so that he would not use a year of eligibility. “After my injury freshman year I was miserable,” Archambault said. Archambault was again forced to sit out his sophomore season with a stress fracture in his femur. “I was able to go through preseason, but the pain got so bad I couldn’t walk,” Archambault said.
Archambault resides in Colorado and through his travels playing lacrosse he found his way to Cabrini. After his injuries in his two seasons here, Archambault chose to transfer to Colorado State University and play on it’s club lacrosse team.
“Fall practice started the first day of school, and right away I noticed it [lacrosse] wasn’t taken as serious as it was out east.”
Archambault returned to Cabrini not long after the start of this school year and immediately got back on the playing field.
“I feel I have something to prove to myself, I want to make it a whole season without injury,” Archambault said as he knocked on wood.
The fall season is well underway. The team has regular practices every Monday and Friday. Wednesdays are conditioning days, and Sundays the team divides for an inter-squad scrimmage. When the team is not practicing it can usually be found training in the weight room or at mandatory study hall in the library every Tuesday and Thursday night. The team is gearing up for their fall tournament on Saturday Oct. 4 where it is scheduled to face host Muhlenburg, Gettysburg, and Widener. After the fall tournament, the team will continue to practice and train until the alumni game, which marks the end of the fall season. The alumni game draws players from years past to challenge the current team in a competitive game.
