The Cabrini Women’s Volleyball team clinched the No. 3 seed for the playoffs with their victory over Immaculata University on Saturday, Oct. 20.
The Cavaliers swept the Mighty Macs here at Cabrini in three matches with scores of 30-13, 30-23 and 30-8. This win brings their conference record to 7-2 and an overall record of 16-7.
Cabrini started out strong from the beginning in the first game and jumped to a 5-0 lead right away. They took a double-digit lead at 17-7 and then soared on a 13-6 run to finish the match.
The second match was closer with Cabrini only taking a 5-4 lead in the beginning. The Cavaliers were only ever up by four points until the score was 20-15. Junior Lindsay Martin had the kill at the end of the match to end it.

“The first game wasn’t too bad. We had a drop-off in the second game, but came out strong in the third and finished the match,” junior elementary education/special education major Kate Fetterman said. “We were confident that we would win, and our play, especially in the third game proved that we should have.”
The team is getting excited and preparing themselves for playoffs which are coming up soon. There are things they are working on and continue to work on since the post-season is just around the corner.
“We are working on a lot of little things during practice. And in games, we’re trying to make sure we keep the energy level up at all times, no matter how the last play went,” Fetterman said. “Everyone is focused on the same goal which is making it to the PAC finals and winning.”
