Practice has paid off as the Volleyball team won their first Pennsylvania Athletic Conference game against Gwynedd Mercy College, 3-2. The Lady Cav’s eight out-of conference games served as important practice to prepare for their more crucial wins.

“Right now we are playing off the high of winning,” head coach, Trish Arnold said. The Lady Cav’s are especially proud of defeating Gwynedd Mercy. Considering Gwynedd Mercy’s past winning records gives high hopes to Cabrini’s team. Last year Gwynedd Mercy finished off second in the PAC, and are ranked to repeat their standings this season as second.

At the Philadelphia Biblical College tournament Cabrini came in second place. “This was something that we have been preparing for, and it was an amazing win,” Casie Green, junior captain said. Another crucial goal that was met was winning both games against Bryn Mawr College, 3-0, and 3-2. This was a huge improvement since last year’s two loses to Bryn Mawr’s team.

During tournament games and traveling on bus trips has given the team a chance to bond. “We are friends on and off the court,” Green said. There are no seniors on the team, and there are four starting freshmen. “Everyone is equal, there is no fighting for spots,” Green said. Good communication is key on the court. Teammates laugh and giggle during practice but know when to be serious and put on their game faces for competition. “Mostly everyone gets in the games to play and it is a very happy atmosphere,” Green said.
