The men’s lacrosse team hosted Wesley College in the PAC Championships, on Saturday, April 28 at 2:30 p.m. Cabrini left with the Championship title with a final score of 15-7, a perfect way for the team to end this year’s season of accomplishments.
This year has been one huge accomplishment for the team. This is their first PAC title. According to senior Ryan Greer, one of the biggest accomplishments was how “we came back from our early losses and won the PAC.” The team was also able to beat Wesley College, which they had lost to four years in a row. This year Cabrini defeated Wesley two times in the same season. They also defeated the 19th ranked team Marymount in overtime with a final score of 10-9.
This year’s team worked together as a whole to obtain a title of PAC Champions. “There were some down points but we came together when it counted,” sophomore Mike Pape said.
According to the lacrosse coach, Steve Colfer, “The team had a lot of senior leadership this year and they paved the way for the younger guys.” The team made a commitment to each other early in the season that they were not going to lose. This team was on a mission to do “whatever it takes to win,” said Colfer. There was not a game this season that was not competitive, the guys gave their all through the season.
This summer and into next year the team will have to keep one thing on their mind; defending their title. Colfer said, “The seniors who are leaving have set the bar high so expectations for next year will be high.” With eight seniors leaving and 10-15 new freshman being recruited next year it is sure to be a very exciting season for this team.
One thing that the coach was very happy with was all the support from the campus community. The team would like to say thank you for all of the campus support. “Keep up the support because it really does help pump up the team,” Colfer said. With that thank you, Cabrini sure does owe this men’s team a thank you for bringing us home another championship title this season.
