With a 7-0 winning streak as of the print date, the Cabrini men’s tennis team is in “love” with the progress they have made this season so far.
Their first game against DeSales University was just the start of the season on Saturday, March 11. Cabrini left the match with a 7-0 win. The second game at Eastern University turned out to be the second win with a final score of 6-0. The next four games ended with the score of 7-0 against Susquehanna University, Wesley College, Gwynedd-Mercy College and Neumann College.
“We’ve won 7 straight matches without any team taking a point off of us,” junior English and communications major, Matt Ingram, said.
As of right now, the men’s tennis team is in first place in their division as well as first place in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference. They have played four games on their way to the PAC Championship and all members of the team are very excited that so far they are undefeated with a 7-0 winning streak.
“Every year our goal is to win the PACs, but I think this year it’s more than winning; it’s to win the PAC and to show the conference how classy and mature our team has become,” Ingram said.
Mike Dignen, a junior graphic design major, has been playing tennis for 13 years and is very excited about his third season being a member of the Cabrini men’s tennis team.
“We have a solid lineup this season from top to bottom,” he said. “It’s a good atmosphere being on the team. The coach is awesome, the trips are great and we all get along with each other.”
There have been new additions to the team with the members from the freshmen class: Duff O’Conner, a freshman marketing major, Drew Sutton, a freshman business administration major, and Kyle Gibbs, a freshman business administration major. Ingram said, “The new players have been a great addition, all 3 of them, Drew, Duff and Kyle have entered the league without fear but great confidence, which is a definite benefactor for the team.”
“We are like one big happy family,” Dignen added.
This past week, the boys have been busy with matches on April 4 against Alverina College with a score of 7-0, Wednesday against Marywood University and Thursday against Ursinus College. On April 8, there are two home games against Immaculata University at 11 a.m. and Goucher College at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 9, King’s College will be visiting Cabrini’s campus to go up against the boys at 11 a.m. Come out and support this undefeated Cavalier team.
