Four Cabrini Teams Clinch AEC Conference Titles

Posted on 5/7/2019 2:39:55 PM

Cabrini’s men’s and women’s lacrosse teams, along with the men’s golf and tennis teams, secured their positions as division leaders with resounding conference title wins in the newly formed Atlantic East Conference (AEC).  

Formed to foster athletic competition and cooperation among academically selective, private colleges located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, the AEC includes Cabrini University, Gwynedd Mercy University, Immaculata University, Marymount University, Marywood University, Neumann University, and Wesley College. Competition began in the 2018–19 season.   

The women's lacrosse team continued its championship run and upset top-seeded Marywood University with a 21-6 victory in Scranton, Pa., May 4. Cabrini's 21 goals, seven free-position goals, and 50 shots rank among the team's top performances of the season. 

While the Blue and White will enter the history books as the first-ever AEC women's lacrosse championship, the title marks the program's eighth in a row and 18th overall. 

Senior Emma Rodner-Tims was named Most Valuable Player.

Men's lacrosse reclaimed its place atop the conference table May 4, as the Cavaliers topped Gwynedd Mercy 21-6 to win the inaugural AEC championship and its 19th-consecutive conference title overall.   

The Blue and White's 10th-consecutive win improved the club’s record to 17-2 overall, tied for the most wins in a season in program history. 

Senior Jordan Krug was named Most Valuable Player after recording career highs of 11 points and seven assists to go with four goals. He stands just eight points behind Casey Grugan for the top spot on the program's career points list. Men's Lacrosse Team


Men's tennis made history May 3 as the team became the initial AEC men's tennis champions. The Cavaliers captured their third-consecutive conference title with a 5-0 win over Neumann at Legacy Tennis Center in Philadelphia. The title marks the sixth conference championship for the Cavaliers. 

The title caps an 11-4 season for Cabrini, including 4-0 in conference play, extending the Cavaliers’ conference win streak to 18 matches.

The men's golf team also captured an AEC championship April 27. The team posted a score of 309 in the tournament's two days and 27 holes. 

This win marks the sixth conference title for the Cavaliers, adding to Colonial States Athletic Conference championships in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2014, and 2017.  

Senior David Gall closed his career atop the individual leaderboard, shooting a 73, the day's low score on the par 72, 6,571-yard Country Club of Scranton course. With this finish, he was also named Player of the Year.
