Yes, Cabrini has a golf team.
“People are always asking me, “Cabrini has a golf team?” said Anthony D’Aleo, sophomore.
Despite a lack of knowledge around campus, the team proved to be quite successful this year. In the first four games before the PAC Championships, the team posted a 4-0 record.
Heading into the PAC Championships, the team added to their resume by playing on the legendary Bethpage golf course. This is the course in which the US Open will be played. “It was breathtaking,” said D’Aleo. “The 18th hole is beautiful and to know that next year the Open will be determined at that hole and to know that we saw it is amazing”
After Bethpage, the team headed to the PAC Championships, which were hosted by College of Misericordia over the weekend of April 29-30. Wesley took home first, but the Cavs tied for fourth with Alvernia College. Senior Brian Moose gave the team an 86 and 82 and finished ninth overall in the tournament. Moose also claimed All PAC second honors. The rest of the team included D’Aleo, Jim McCrea, Bill Rookstool, Pete Pietranik, and Zane Hamid.
The team speaks highly of itself when describing their season. “This year we did not know how things would be going in, the team came through pretty well,” said D’Aleo. “We just go out there and enjoy ourselves.”
Improvement is also something that the Cavs hoped to accomplish at the beginning of the season. “We have done what we wanted to do and everyone has improved, we have had fun,” said D’Aleo.
D’Aleo and Moose take the top two spots on the team. Both have helped the Cavs with low averages all season. D’Aleo averages an 83 and Moose a 78 or 79. Besides a low average, Moose has also been selected as honorable mention for the past two weeks in the PAC league.
As the Cavs end a season, a new season brings anticipation. According to D’Aleo, the team will only loose two players next year, Moose being one. The team is also expecting some recruits. “We had a really good season and played well with only two returning players, I look forward to being captain next year and to the four returning players and new ones,” said D’Aleo.
