The Cabrini women’s volleyball team started its Pennsylvania Athletic Conference season with a big win over Alvernia on Tuesday, Sept. 9.
With the Lady Cavs having finished last year with an overall record of 8-14, its first game win was a hopeful preview into what can be expected from the girls throughout the continuation of the season.
“I think that this season we will go really far if we continue to play like we did against Alvernia,” sophomore Kacie Green said. “I think that many teams in the PAC are surprised by how much we have improved over the years, and if we continue to play like this, then we are on the road to the playoffs.”
According to Green, a lot of the team’s progress can be credited to head coach Trisha Arnold. “She has really tried to rebuild Cabrini’s program,” Green said. “She works the team hard, and she is really big on us doing things together as a team. She knows that in order to win, that’s what we need to do.”
After the 3-1 win over Alvernia, Arnold expressed her excitement for what she said had been Cabrini’s first victory against Alvernia, in a time span of what she thought to be about 10 years. “I feel like I’m in the twilight zone. This has been a really great night,” Arnold said.
