The weather is getting ready to heat up and so is the 2001 men’s lacrosse team. According to Josh Selchert, senior, the team had two goals this season: to knock off a top 20 team and to win the PAC championship.

The team has already accomplished their first goal by defeating Marymount University on April 13 at home. Marymount is ranked number 19 in the latest USILA Division three polls. The Cavs trailed by three goals at half time. They took Marymount into overtime and edged them out 10-9. The winning goal went into the net with 1:21 on the clock in the overtime period.

“It was crazy, everyone was going wild,” said Selchert. “It’s hard enough to get a top 20 team to play you, but to beat them is something.”

The Cavs will have a chance to achieve to their second goal of the season on Saturday, April 28. They will take on Wesley College here at Cabrini, time still to be announced.

They have defeated Wesley, 17-11, once this season when they played them at home. “Beating Wesley at home was memorable because they had defeated us for the past three or four years. We had to make a statement,” said Mike Pape, sophomore.

The year has been good for the Cavs. They took the coveted first place standing in the PAC conference by delivering an undefeated season, 4-0. Overall the Cavs posted an 8-4 record.

The Cavs will be heading into the championship game with a division power rating of 50 out of a possible 126 teams, which Selchert explains is good.

Along with a stellar season, individual players have also scored honors. Listed on the PAC website, four Cabrini players made the top ten in Men’s Lacrosse Scoring.

Sophomore Pape tied for second with Brian Bradley of Neumann College with 36 goals and 15 assists. Junior Tom Lemieux came in fourth with 16 goals and 25 assists. In sixth was Senior Brendan Muller who had 12 goals and 21 assists, and in seventh was Senior Josh Hagelin who had 25 goals and 6 assists.

Before playing Marymount the Cavs had defeated four teams straight. With the win against Marymount, they had a five game – winning streak going. As of print date, the Cavs had two games left to play before the championships. On April 19, they were scheduled to play against Ursinus College, but the game was postponed. The second to be played on Saturday, April 21 against Scranton. The Cavs continued their winning ways by posting a 19-7 score.

They ask that everyone come out and support them and to not forget that on April 28, they will be playing at home against Wesley College for the PAC Championship. “We just have to stay on our high and not go down,” said Pape.
