Putting in jeopardy its undefeated season, the men’s lacrosse team traveled to Columbus, Ohio. to play Ohio Wesleyan University and the College of Wooster.

The men’s lacrosse team made the eight hour bus ride to Ohio where they were scheduled to play Ohio Wesleyan University on Friday, March 19, the day after its departure from Cabrini’s campus. Inclement weather pushed the game back a day forcing the Cavaliers to play back-to-back games Saturday and Sunday.

In its first game on the weekend trip, the men’s team edged past ninth ranked Ohio Wesleyan University with a score of 8-7. The Cavaliers jumped out to a 6-1 lead and rallied to fend off the Fighting Bishops in the closing minutes to record it’s fifth victory in five games.

The men’s lacrosse team extended its winning streak to six games with another close battle against the College of Wooster. The game ended with the Cavaliers topping the Scots with a score of 11-9.

Bill Cordts, freshman lacrosse player, said, “Our trip to Ohio was no more than a business trip; we set out to do something and we did it. The craziest part is that our team hasn’t played its best lacrosse yet. As a team we play well because we always have someone step up and take charge. The captains and seniors do a great job of focusing us and getting everyone mentally ready.”

Cabrini’s men’s lacrosse team has done something no other men’s lacrosse team has done in the school and conference history. Cabrini’s team has been natinally ranked. They are ranked in the top 20 in the nation among Division III lacrosse teams. This achievement came after beating 13th ranked Hamilton. The Cavaliers have now jumped to 11th in the rankings after beating ninth ranked Ohio Wesleyan this past weekend.

Nick Terlizzo, sophomore criminal justice major, said, “I think that playing ranked teams is a good chance for Division III to finally see what Cabrini lacrosse has, and to show that we are not some small pushover school but we work hard for wins.”
