Spring break. A time to relax have some fun with close friends and catch some rays. Students go to places like Texas and Jamaica. Forgetting about homework and college in general.

The woman’s lacrosse team took this time off to better their athletic ability. While they did get a chance to catch some rays and have some fun, they spent most of the week sweating and playing a game that they love.

From March 3 to March 10 the lacrosse team went to St. Petersburg, Florida. Stayed in the Howard Johnson hotel and participated in a team camp to practice, scrimmage and bond with their teammates.

Cabrini amongst six other schools, including Temple, St. Joseph’s University and Rochester, practiced and scrimmaged each day while they were in Florida. Tuesday the teams participated in a round robin where each team played each other for 20 minutes. At night each team played in two full games. Scores were not kept in the scrimmages but Cabrini’s team did well. If they did not win the game they were close in score with the other team. At the end of the week four girls were chosen from each team to play against a team that had traveled from Scotland.

The teams were pushed to use their athletic ability on the field in both practices and especially scrimmages.

Junior Jill Foster said, “this was a good chance to get to know the team without other pressures from school, besides playing and having fun.” Other then learning new strategies of play the team also learned how to work with each other on the field

The team expects to have a good season this year. The woman’s lacrosse team expects to do as well if not better then they did last year, hoping once again to win the PAC. They have won the championship three
