Since the spring portion of the men’s golf season began, the Cavaliers have had their eyes fixed on a CSAC title. The Cavs came close in 2010, finishing just two strokes behind Keystone College for the championship.

“Our one main goal is to win the CSAC championship because this year it is all about revenge,” junior Chris Sarvadi said.

The golf team finished off the month of March with a second place finish in the Philadelphia University Invitational and a 346-350 victory over Immaculata University.

Sarvadi, sophomore Greg Verde and freshman Pat Rooney posted scores of 85, 83 and 86, respectively for Cabrini.

April brought more success to the golf team as Cabrini won both the Swarthmore College Invitational on Monday, April 4 and the Immaculata University Invitational on Tuesday, April 5.

“After winning both the Swarthmore tournament and the Immaculata tournament, I have a lot of confidence in this team to do big things this year,” Verde said. “It is nice to get a taste of victory and build confidence.”

Cabrini beat out five other teams in the Swarthmore College Invitational and won the event by six strokes. Verde and senior Mike Ryan led the way with scores of 72 and 76 respectively.

The Immaculata University Invitational proved to be kind to the Cavs as they defeated 10 other teams en route to the win. Cabrini also took home first place in the 2010 Immaculata University invitational.

“Our matches and tournaments give us the experience we need to excel when we need to do so,” Sarvadi said. “They are a lot of fun and help the team come together.”

Cabrini finished ninth out of 10 teams in the recent Manhattanville College/New York University Invitational, which was held on April 9 and 10.

Verde shot the course low for day one of the team’s visit to New York and finished tied for first with a two-day score of 145. Ryan finished second for the Cavaliers with a total score of 162 as Cabrini compiled a team score of 659.

“This year we have a different, younger team with some new blood,” Ryan said. “We all feel like we have the ability to win now. All we have to do is go out there and perform.”

With only three events left to play in April, the opportunity for a CSAC title is right around the corner.

“All we can do this year is play our best and hope to come out on top,” Verde said.

The next event for the Cavs is the Rutgers-Camden Invitational on Friday, April 15.
