Scott Reimer, an all-American, is going into his senior year searching for the only thing he hasn’t been able to accomplish in his illustrious career.
Reimer, a four-year starter at Cabrini is hoping he can lead his team to their first ever National Championship.
One of the reasons he chose Cabrini is because he wanted to be on a winning team with a storied history.
He found the college perfect for what he was looking for as a student.
In his junior season, Reimer led the Cavs to a 17-3 record while leading the team in goals with 68 and points with 74.
“I worked hard coming in my freshman year and early in the season the coaches gave me a chance and I tried taking advantage of it.” He scored the most goals for any freshman in Cabrini history.
His only goal for his senior season has nothing to do with stats or accolades but only one team goal.
Reimer wants a national championship banner for the lacrosse team hanging in the Dixon Center.
His previous goal was accomplished last year, when he received an honorable mention all-American along with three other Cabrini players.
Asked whether Cabrini has the talent to win a National Championship he responded, “I would have to say as a team we have the best team we have ever had and I feel we can go really deep in the playoffs.”
He credits his teammates as the reason he is able to succeed on the field and that the talent that Cabrini has makes it easy for him to play his game.
Cabrini has built a successful program because of their ability to win big games, which Reimer admits is the most fun part of college lacrosse.
“It is a great feeling winning a game no one thinks you have a shot in,” Reimer said.
Last season in CSAC games Cabrini went 10-0 with the average score being 21-3, making it tough to play top their competition. As the core seniors look for a last chance at a National Championship, the thought of where the program has come from makes their goal even more special.
This team winning a National Championship would put a final stamp on the long road that has brought the program to prominence.
Reimer knows this run at a National Championship is far away but he believes it is there for the taking. Reimer wants to be there to help his team in any way possible. He doesn’t need the accolades or recognition but rather the chance to take Cabrini to a place it has never been. He wants to be the best in the country.
