Cabrini Shuts out Rosemont to Clinch CASC #1 Seed

RADNOR, Pa. The Cabrini women's lacrosse team wrapped up an undefeated regular season against Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) opponent on Saturday, rolling to an 18-0 shutout win versus Rosemont College at Edith Robb Dixon Field. The victory clinches the CSAC regular season title for the Cavaliers and the No. 1 seed in the postseason tournament.

It is also the ninth time since the 1998 season that Cabrini has gone through the CSAC regular season without a loss. In fact, under the leadership of 14th-year head coach Jackie Neary, the Cavaliers own a 106-4 record versus conference opponents since 1998.

Junior attack Jamie O'Hanlon (Springfield, Pa./Springfield Delco HS) led the Blue & White attack with five points on three goals and two assists. O'Hanlon is three goals shy of 100 for her career at Cabrini.

Senior attack Danielle Rothermel (Philadelphia, Pa./St. Hubert's HS) tallied three points with three goals. Senior midfielder Kellie Levy (Westminster, Md./Francis Scott Key HS) notched three points, pairing two scores with one helper.

Senior attack Amanda Alexandrowicz (Ridley Park, Pa./Ridley HS) and junior attack Gabrielle Gorbey (Ridley Park, Pa./Ridley HS) each posted three points on one goal and two assists. Alexandrowicz is nearing the 200-goal plateau for her career, now needing just four scores.

The Cabrini offense boasted 12 players netting at least one goal, including senior midfielder Michele Ferrise (Glenolden, Pa./Interboro HS) and junior defender Julie Bonomo (Manhassett, N.Y./Saint Mary's HS), who found the back of the cage for the first time in their Cavalier tenures.

Senior goalkeeper Kate Schmid (Philadelphia, Pa./St. Hubert's HS) played all 60 minutes in between the pipes, needing just one save for her first career shutout and 47th career victory.

Junior defender Courtney Davis (Madison, N.J./Madison HS) paced the Cavaliers in the hustle category, controlling a team-best four groundballs. Davis also chipped in two points with one goal and one assist.

The Blue & White improved its record to 9-0 this season when winning the draw control battle. Alexandrowicz and senior midfielder Lynda Kaufmann (Boothwyn, Pa./Chichester HS) each totaled a club-high three draw controls.

The win assures the Cavaliers home-field advantage throughout the CSAC Tournament. Cabrini has won nine conference championships since the 1998 campaign, including six straight from 1998-2005 and in 2009.

Cabrini (9-6, 8-0) concludes its regular season schedule on Sunday night at home versus Centennial Conference foe Dickinson College. Game time is set for 5:00 p.m.
