The Cabrini women’s lacrosse team hosted a basketball tournament on Sunday, Nov. 23, in the Dixon Center.
Fifty-five students and friends came out to support the women’s lacrosse team by playing in three vs. three half court games.
Senior captain Anna Scholl organized the entire event.
“It was a lot of hard work, but in the end it was a great success; we were able to raise a lot of money for our team,” Scholl, senior English and communication major, said.
Teams had their choice of signing up for the competitive league or, if your basketball skills are lacking, the recreational league.
Games ran for 10 minutes and the winners moved on to the next round.
“We were a mini Globetrotters team but somehow couldn’t capitalize on our chances,” Jim Mattock, freshman business major, said.
Mattock’s team, “Team Bomb Squad,” made it far in the competitive league but just couldn’t finish on top.
More than friends came out and played; the women’s lacrosse team played on teams as well.
Dolores Weathers, Monica Souders, Lauren Magill, Jamie O’Hanlon, Andrea Bialon, Anna Scholl and Michele Ferrise proved they can play more than just lacrosse by dominating on the courts.
“It was a different way to get people to come out and have fun; we appreciate all the support we got,” Weathers, sophomore exercise science major, said.
“Everyone always goes home on the weekends so this was a good way to keep people around,” Souders, junior biology major, said.
At the end of the tournament it was team named “Foreigners” that took home the prize by defeating team McDevitt 8-7.
The Cabrini women’s lacrosse team thanked all those who showed their support.
The women’s lacrosse team has their home opener on March 6, against Stevens Institute of Technology.
