As the 2007 season enters its fourth week of play, the Cabrini women’s lacrosse team is undefeated in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference. Although the women lost their first game to Ursinus in overtime, they went on to win their next two games, both of which were PAC games.
Most recently, the Lady Cavaliers beat Rowan University and beat Stevens Tech, as well as Eastern University to make their overall record 5-1 and their PAC record 3-0.
“The win over Rowan was huge for us and we definitely deserved it,” Lauren Iannece, a sophomore secondary education major, said.
Senior elementary education major and captain Tamara Scanlan, who is a senior forward, is very pleased with the start of the season.
“We were a little bummed about losing to Ursinus, but we definitely got back into our groove,” Scanlan said.
Scanlan is especially pleased with the performance of freshman goalie, Kate Schmid.
“Stepping in as a freshman is not easy, especially stepping into a team that is
ranked 16th,” Scanlan said.
Many of the team members have commended Schmid for her performances and credited her to some of the team’s success so far this year.
Iannece is also thrilled with the performances of other freshman Erin Nollen and freshman criminology major Danielle Rothermel.
“We have a lot of great players on the field and a lot of bench players who are always ready to step up when needed, and the freshmen class this year
is incredible,” Iannece said.
As the Lady Cavaliers near the middle of the regular season both Iannece and Scanlan are looking forward to seeing what the team can to together.
“We take one game at a time, but when our heads are in the game and we play as one, we win games,” Scanlan said.
