The women’s volleyball team defeated Neumann University 3-0 on Saturday, Nov. 5, to clinch their third straight CSAC championship. The team reached the championship game after defeating Baptist Bible 3-0 on Thursday, Nov. 3 in a semifinal match-up.

Cabrini cruised to a 25-9 win in their first set against Baptist Bible and won the next two sets by scores of 25-18 and 25-15.  Sophomore Alaina Clark contributed 36 assists and the team combined for 54 digs.

When facing off against Neumann, the team found themselves down 16-9 early in the first set but came back to win 26-24. From there, Cabrini picked up 25-17 and 25-21 victories to claim the title. Senior Alexis Doss recorded her 1000th-career kill in the game as well.

“The team, overall, set out with a goal and we accomplished that goal, which was to win,” Doss said. “We knew it was going to be a tough match and Neumann put up a tough fight but we ended up victors. It was nice that we beat them 3-0 instead of letting it go to five. That just shows how determined we were to win and finish the season strong.”

Junior Danielle Carrozza was named 2011 CSAC Volleyball Championship Most Valuable Player. Carrozza finished with 12 kills and 16 digs in the game.

“We worked harder everyday at practice and because of that we reached our goal of winning the CSAC championship,” Carrozza said.

Carrozza mentioned how close together the team was on and off the court, which contributed to their progress and success. With a hard schedule in the beginning of the season, the Cavs toughened up game by game to become as successful as they are now.

Carrozza explained how much of an impact the seniors had on the team with all of their positive vibes.

“We wish the seniors the best of luck,” Carrozza said.

The Cavaliers will now take on Juniata College in the NCAA tournament on Friday, Nov. 11. The game will take place in Aston, Pa.
