Cabrini women’s volleyball team split a double header on Saturday, Oct. 11 against Rosemont college and Eastern University.
Women’s volleyball played against division rival, Rosemont, and most importantly got the win, 3-0. The win was important for the ladies record in the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC).
“Staying focused and playing like a team and having fun helped with the win,” Lizzie Williams, junior biology and pre-med major, said.
Eastern, on the other hand, jumped to 25-14 lead in the first two sets and held off a Cavalier rally in the third to take the match.
Cabrini suffered the loss from the Eagle road rival Eastern University who is ranked No. 25, 3-0.
The Eastern University women’s volleyball team hit a dominating .440.
“We had a good time out on the court just playing so we kept a no stress attitude all the way through each set,” Traci Beltz, junior exercise science major, said. “The energy level is pretty high. We all get really excited over little things so when we get a big win; it’s a great feeling.”
The match was the first non-conference contest between the two programs.
The Cavaliers acquired their thirteenth win this season overall and fourth win within the division the CSAC.
“Our positive attitude and having fun helped the most with the win today,” Courtney Abel, freshman biology and pre-med major, said.
“Teamwork added to the win as well,” Stephanie Recklau, sophomore biology and pre-med major, said.
The team has just six games left in the season before the playoffs. Out of those last six games, five of them are conference rivals.
The lady Cavs want to improve on their already high-quality game they play.
“We can talk and communicate better. We need to move on to the next point after we make mistakes,” Beltz said.
“The team needs to just have fun no matter who is on the other side of the net,” Williams said.
“Playing every game with the same intensity or more as the one before, is a must,” Recklau said.
The ladies volleyball team takes the court Thursday, Oct. 16 for one of the final two home games against Cedar Crest College at 7 p.m.
