Lindsay Martin is trying to get a ring before she leaves Cabrini.

The senior volleyball player is an outside hitter for the Cavs, a position she has held for four years.

Martin was awarded with a second team all-league award last year and plans for more accolades this year as the season is in the full swing.

She leads the team by example and with words and has shown her teammates how to be successful on and off the court.

She was awarded All-academic honors last year. On the court, she has Cabrini in sole possession of second place in the CSAC and looking very good as the playoffs begin.

Making the playoffs isn’t her goal though; she wants a championship before she graduates in the spring.

Martin has been able to show younger players how to play the game the right way, which is why her coach is so happy to have her be a part of the program.

“She has the ability to bring her teammates together at the right time when they need a boost in tough points of the games,” head volleyball coach Eric Schaefer said.

Cabrini is now 5-1 in league play after a 3-0 win over Cedar Crest College. This puts the team in the perfect position to get their first championship in school history. The past four years have been quite successful for Martin as she and her team’s play has improved each year.

“This is our most talented team and has the most experience, were in a great spot to make a run all the way,” Schaefer said.

“We know we have the ability to win games and we have proven that we can win. I really believe we have the experience to win the big games now, which is the difference this year.”

“With a big group of freshmen, leadership is going to be an even more important role,” Martin said. “I think with our four seniors, we’ll be fine. We’ll have to be more vocal. The four seniors will have to work hard for each other and work hard for our coach.”

Martin’s career has been very illustrious but there is more to put in the record books.

She leads the team in many offensive categories including minutes, kills and digs.

Cabrini has seven conference games remaining, then on to the playoffs. If Martin can remain playing the level she is at now first team all league is in her grasp.

There are three home games left before the playoffs start for fans to come out and watch her talent on the court.

Martin will play to the best of her ability with every kill and assist she has.
