The Cabrini women’s volleyball team is now 8-1 in CSAC play, thanks to their 3-0 victory over conference rival Keystone College. The Lady Cavs were playing in their annual “Dig Pink Night” supporting breast cancer on Tuesday, Oct. 16.

The Cavs dominated the court as they took all three games. They showed no mercy as they won the first set 25-10.

Freshman Cassidy Koenig served for 5 recorded points as the climbed to a 6-1 lead. Danielle Carrozza and Alaina Clark would rack up 11 points when they served, helping the Cavs to the set victory.

The second match was a tight one. The score was knotted at seven after the first 14 points. Carrozza put the Cav’s on top, 13-7, as she had multiple service aces. That rallied the Lady Cavs to a 25-15 victory.

Two seniors made the spot light as Carrozza and Meg Ryan started pummeling the Giants with kills. Carrozza recorded nine kills and Ryan was not far behind with seven kills.

Cabrini would finish off the massacre as they took the third set, winning 25-8. Koenig gave the Cavs nine points as she served and tacked on 3 service aces.

“I think our play improves from game to game,” Clark said. “We started out by getting some strong service points in from Cassidy and our lead continued from there.

“But I feel as if our energy level is not where it should have been. We were all going through the motions, so to speak, rather than playing with drive.”

The Giants entered the match with a 2-7 record in the CSAC and a 3-21 record overall. It wasn’t a challenging game on the Lady Cavs’ schedule but it was an important one nonetheless.

“We knew going into the match that we were going to win; it was just a matter of how many points we were going to win by,” Clark said. “As a whole I feel like we played mediocre at the game tonight. The energy level was pretty low, we weren’t really communicating well with each other and we were playing slow.”

The Lady Cavs wore their pink jerseys tonight as Cabrini takes part in the Side-Out Foundation Dig Pink Campaign, raising breast Cancer awareness. Their next game is Wednesday, Oct. 17, at Haverford College at 7 p.m.
