Confident players of Cabrini’s field hockey team believe that becoming the college’s first field hockey team to win the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference title is definitely within their reach. The women have reason to believe this goal certainly is a possibility with their 4-6 record overall and 2-3 in the PAC. The team’s first PAC win of the season was last Tuesday when they played an excellent game and defeated Marywood 6-0.
Mary Proietta, a 3 year player and junior at Cabrini, said, “I feel that this season we have the most talented group of women than in the past years. Everyone on the team shows strengths that we use to mature as players.” It is evident to anyone watching a Cabrini field hockey game that the women on the team this season play well together.
The field hockey players scored five goals in the first half of the game against Marywood on Tuesday, September 21, which led to their deserving 6-0 win. Among the many players who scored goals in the first PAC win, were Rebecca Gallagher, Tami Scanlan, April Kaufmann, Jackie Small, Laura Jump and Mary Proietta.
Cabrini’s field hockey team has yet to win the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference. Head coach Jackie Neary feels that the team has a chance in winning the title this year. When asked her opinion on winning the PAC title Proietta said, “I think we definitely have a great chance at winning the PAC this year. Our team has an amazing determination to achieve this goal that was set in the beginning of the year. Every girl on the team wants to be part of the first field hockey team at Cabrini to bring home the PAC title.”
Cabrini’s field hockey team appears to be playing very well this season and all team members and coach have the motivation and determination that it takes to compete and win the PAC title. Neary said, “The games that we have lost in the PAC’s have been very close and we hope to face those opponents in the playoffs because we feel very strongly that we can beat them if given the chance to play again. We have a talented team this year and now we find ourselves in a situation where we must win the rest of our games to make the PAC playoffs. This has been our goal since August and I believe the girls can reach this goal if they work together. Every player counts on this team.”
