On Friday, March 30, the Cabrini softball team defeated Immaculata University with a score of 9-1 at the end of the fifth inning.
“The team has vision, you can’t teach it,” Andrea Mory, a sophomore human resources management major and captain of the team, said.
The Lady Cavaliers were able to come out of the first inning with two runs. Jen Euganeo, a senior exercise science and health promotion major, made a double, then stole third, and eventually stole home, putting Cabrini in the lead 1-0. Kristie Sandefur, a sophomore psychology major, made an identical play in the same inning.
The second inning was slow by both teams, whereas the third and fourth innings contained some commotion on the field. Euganeo and Brittany Caprice, a junior elementary education major, both went to catch the foul ball and ran into each other. Caprice seemed injured, but shortly returned to the game.
In the fourth inning, Brittany Shields, a sophomore elementary education major, knocked down a piece of the fence while chasing the ball. Because of the fall, she delayed getting the ball back and Immaculata scored their first run.
The fourth inning was a vital time in the game and at the end of it, Cabrini was up 7-1. For the majority of the inning the bases were loaded. Runs were made by freshman Kerri Ann MacNeal, Shields, Euganeo, sophomore exercise science and health promotion major, Caitlin McDevitt and Sandefur.
The Cavaliers, however, did not stop there, they made two more runs in the fifth inning making the final score 9-1. These runs were made by Euganeo and Kelly Smith, a freshman Spanish major.
Caitlin McDevitt commented, “It was good to be out on our field for the first time this season. We knew we had to win and we did it.”
