Ever wonder what it takes to be a Cabrini athlete? How did the college get such great and dedicated players? Well here’s a little inside scoop for all of the wonderers out there.

Heather St. Amour, junior captain of the women’s soccer team, visited Cabrini while watching a tournament. “When I came to Cabrini for the tournament, the girls soccer team made me feel very welcome.” Cabrini offered a great physical therapy program and St. Amour was hooked.

Marcel Basset, a cross country runner and basketball player, felt that a Cabrini team made him feel like part of a family. “The reason why I chose Cabrini was because of the atmosphere and the competitive spirit. I’m a great fan of being an athlete on this campus because it gives you some way to channel all of your boredom. If it wasn’t for athletics I would never have experienced the greatness that I have experienced here at Cabrini.”

Senior lacrosse player Chris Salemme transferred to Cabrini and was interviewed by Steve Colfer, the lacrosse coach. When asked about playing at this school, Salemme said “I played at my other school and still enjoy playing; this is a winning program and I like everyone on the team.”

The athletes at Cabrini are obviously dedicated to the sports that they play. St. Amour suffered an injury this year and is yet unable to play but that does not stop her support. “It sucks I’m not playing now because of my injury and that kills me, but I support my girls in any way I can. Soccer is something I have done for a while and hopefully I will continue after college.”
