The Cabrini College women’s volleyball team beat Cedar Crest College with a score of 3-0 on Saturday, Oct. 17.

This was the lady Cavs fifth consecutive win and they still remain undefeated in the Colonial States Athletic Conference.

“It feels really good to be undefeated in the CSAC,” Lizzie Williams, senior pre-med major, said. “If we keep playing like we have been, we have a good shot at winning the CSAC championship.”

Against Cedar Crest, Williams guided the offense and recorded a total of 32 assists on the day. In addition to her assists, Williams collected five digs and two service aces.

Leading the offense once again was junior middle hitter Stephanie Recklau. Recklau recorded 13 kills on just 18 attempts. Her hitting percentage for the day was .667. Recklau’s season attack percentage was ranked 12th nationally in the National Collegiate Athletic Association on Oct. 4.

“It’s really exciting for me to be ranked nationally,” Recklau said. “It feels great, and I wouldn’t be able to do it without the rest of the players.”

Also helping out offensively was senior hitter Traci Beltz and sophomore hitters Alexis Doss and Beth Gillespie.

Beltz tallied a total of eight kills for the day while Doss and Gillespie chipped in with seven each.

“We all have been playing really well,” Beltz said. “If we continue to play like this we’re really going to be a threat in the playoffs.”

Leading the defense against Cedar Crest was Doss and senior Kate Conahan. Both players registered a team-high six digs for the match.

The lady Cavs came out strong in the first set against Cedar Crest and beat the team 25-15.

In the second set, Cabrini held its ground and came out to win 25-16. The lady Cavs clinched the match in the third set winning 25-20.

“Everyone did their part,” sophomore libero Courtney Abel said. “We played as a team and we came out with a win.”
