Megan Farrell, junior English and communication major, has been playing field hockey as long as she can remember. Her earliest memories of the game are of watching her mother coach.

“I was always by her side when she was coaching. She is the main reason I am still playing field hockey today,” Farrell said. “She showed me the most important thing: the love for the game.”

Even though Farrell played the game for most of her life; she did not play on an organized team until fifth grade. It wasn’t until this that she truly understand her mother’s love for field hockey.

The Lady Cavs have confidence this year in their potential to win the PAC, Pennsylvania Athletic Conference. “I have been on the team since freshman year and, in my opinion, we are the strongest we have been in three years,” Farrell said.

As a midfielder, Farrell has to assist both offense and defense. She is a crucial part to Cabrini’s success, physically and mentally. Her voice is often heard on the sideline by spectators cheering on her teammates.

“My favorite thing about our team is the camaraderie. We are like a family and have always stressed quality, not quantity. As a team, we are very efficient. We can practice for an hour and get everything accomplished, rather than be out there for hours.”

On Sept. 22, Cabrini hosted Rowan University, who has a record of 9-1 and were ranked fifth nationally on Oct. 5. “We had one of our best games of the season. Despite the 1-0 loss we were happy with how we played against such a good team,” Farrell said.

Rowan is used to just running through teams, but with dedicated players, like Farrell, it is easy to see how Cabrini gave them a run for their money and are still in the hunt for PAC.
