On a normal day women’s soccer athlete Sara Player wakes up and gets ready, goes to class, then to work at the business office, then she either has practices or a game. Once that is over, she is back to her room or the library for some homework. “I like Cabrini, a lot of people complain about it, but it’s really how you make it,” Player said.

Player, a sophomore social work/special education major with a Spanish minor, does not just spend her days this way for fun; she does it because she loves the game. Even though she is not a starter on the team, she wants to see her team, “win whatever way they can, even if it means supporting from the side.” Just like most athletes, her main goal to accomplish this season is to win the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference.

Before attending Cabrini, Player attended Cape May Technical High School and played center mid-fielder her freshman and sophomore year before beginning to play goalie her junior year. According to Player, college soccer is more physical and contains more footwork drills than high school. As for practices in college, it mostly contains scrimmage work and different drills to work on ball handling skills.

At the start of her first year at Cabrini, Player hurt her back about a week before she was to come and play. Due to this injury she was out for around a month and had to do physical therapy for the rest of the season. It became hard for her because she was not used to not playing. Where as most athletes may just give up and move on to other things after being out their whole first year season, Player chose to stick it out.

“When I play soccer everything else in the world disappears, nothing matters except playing and playing my heart out, that’s why I play,” Player said.
