PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There are certain things that you can count on every April. Your taxes will be due by the 15th, an NCAA college basketball champion will be crowned and the Division III Cabrini College lacrosse team will be a dominant force in the Colonial States Athletic Conference.
The Cavaliers are 11-0 this season and Wednesday night’s 25 to 4 win over Neumann University was their 99th straight win in Colonial States Athletic Conference action. They are ranked second in Division III.
The 11-0 start is also the best start in program history.
“The players have bought in,” Cabrini head coach Steve Colfer told KYW Newsradio prior to the win over Neumann on Wednesday.”They’ve had a really strong off-season, they worked hard. They came in ready, prepared from day #1, our first practice back in January. I just think it’s a continuation of the things that we really subscribe to in the recruiting process when we’re looking for players and then building our program here.”
Colfer has already built quite a program. Since he became head coach in 2001, Cabrini has gone 194-50, won 13 straight CSAC titles and made 12 straight appearances in the NCAA Tournament.
