The softball team split a double-header with Gwynedd-Mercy College on Saturday, March 29 in Pennsylvania Athletic Conference play.
In game one, the Lady Cavs were defeated 3-2 as the Griffins scored the winning run in the top of the ninth inning.
“All of game one was really challenging. It was either tied or a one-run game the entire time,” junior psychology major Kristie Sandefur said. “Luckily we were able to pull ourselves together and come out a lot stronger in the second game.”
The Lady Cavs took the second game with a 12-6 win.
“In the second game we hit the ball very well as a team, which is something that from game to game we have trouble doing,” junior pre-physical therapy major Melissa Benedetti said.
“We came out swinging and scored 12 runs against a decent team in the second game,” Sandefur said.
The result of the double-header advanced Cabrini to 8-11 overall and 5-3 in the PAC.
“Since we are a young team it is taking us some time for come together but with each game we are making improvements and getting better,” Benedetti said.
Looking ahead to the remainder of the season, the team is focusing on making the playoffs.
“I think some of our biggest goals collectively are minimizing our errors and doing the little things right and being able to pick each other up,” Sandefur said.
The Lady Cavs will continue PAC play at Centenary College on Saturday, April 5 at 1 p.m.
