Adelphi Women’s Lacrosse Takes Eighth NCAA Div. II Title

by Michelle Bermudez '18

For the third time in four years the Adelphi women’s lacrosse team was crowned the Division II national champion. In a 6-4 win against Florida Southern, four goals from Kate Beier ‘17 and stifling defense from team member Ryley Weber ‘17 made all the difference.

A number of news outlets including, News 12 Long Island, and Newsday covered the championship game in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, which was the Panther’s eighth title win and the second win under head coach Pat McCabe.

“I was never on a defense like this, I’ll tell you that much,” McCabe told Newsday. “I marvel at how they play, I really do.”

Weber, along with fellow seniors Beier, Jen Graham ‘17 Jacqueline Jahelka ‘17 Jill Graziano ‘17 and Casey Zalewski ‘17 made history in their four years as Panthers. “I really couldn’t do it without anyone I’m playing with down low,” Weber told Newsday. “I owe everything I’ve done the past four years to everybody that’s been on the field with me.”
