The women’s lacrosse team tore through the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference in search of their sixth consecutive title.

The Lady Cavs are 10-0 in the PAC and maintain an 11-4 record overall. On Wednesday, April 23, the women lost a close battle with The College of New Jersey, 15-8. The College of New Jersey is ranked number 2 in the nation, so the tough play of the Cavs leads them into the PAC tournament with a lot of confidence. “They were up by one and then got another goal and were up by two and got in the momentum and just kept scoring and it took us a few minutes to get our momentum back, but we were so glad to play that game because it gave us confidence for the upcoming playoffs,” Julie Smith, sophomore attack- wing, said.

The team looks forward to the PAC tournament, with a bye last weekend and its semifinal game at home on Wednesday, April 30, there are high hopes for the five-time champs. “I think we are doing really well, we are in first in the PAC and are undefeated. We have won the PAC title the last five consecutive years and I think we have a good chance of making it number six,” Anne Dougherty, junior captain, said.

The team’s constant winning had not gotten old yet, leaving time for more players to get in the game and opening doors to play nationally ranked teams like The College of New Jersey. “We have fun and it gives a chance for everyone to play. We also get to play teams outside of our conference, and those games are always competitive,” Dougherty said.

The team has fun on and off the field, noting that its biggest strength is their strong chemistry, though they lead or come in second in the PAC in seven statistical categories. “Our ability to play as a whole, we get along so well on and off the field,” Dougherty said.

“Our team eats a lot,” Smith said. “We’re all so close that I think we have the chemistry on and off the field to go to NCAAs.”
