The Cabrini men’s lacrosse team dominated the final 15 minutes and earned the right to continue its historic season, topping No. 2 Salisbury 16-13 to secure a place in this Sunday’s national championship game.
Joining the Cavaliers at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday will be the No. 7 Amherst College Mammoths, who will also be making the program’s first ever championship game appearance after today’s 12-8 win at No. 5 Williams.
Men’s lacrosse achieved another first on Tuesday, May 21, when University President Donald B. Taylor, PhD, conferred degrees on the team’s seniors in a special late afternoon Commencement ceremony on campus. While the rest of the Class of 2019 graduated May 19 during Cabrini’s official Commencement in the Nerney Field House at the Dixon Center, these student-athletes were spending the afternoon in Maryland preparing for their semifinal game victory.
The trade-off was worth it for this team.
Joined by joyous family and friends, eight members of the lacrosse team, clad in cap and gown, processed down the aisle—a much smaller aisle—in the Mansion Dining Room.
Thunderous applause erupted as each student was called to accept his diploma. Timothy Brooks, Cassius Christie, Kevin Delaney, Drew Hanna, Jordan Krug, Nick LaBanca, William Morgan, and Riley White received bachelor’s degrees. Nicholas Vass, who earned a master’s degree, was unable to attend the ceremony.
CONGRATULATIONS AND GO CAVS!!
