Cardinals ranked 12th in this week's IWLCA poll

WASHINGTON – The IWLCA released its latest national poll on Tuesday, and CUA is ranked 12th. The Cards went 1-1 during their opening week of the season, downing Frostburg State before falling to No. 2 Salisbury.

CUA began its season on February 26 with a 15-7 victory over Frostburg State in cold and rainy conditions. Lindsay Brophy and Caroline DiBartolomeo combined for nine goals on the night, while CUA broke open a tight game by outscoring the Bobcats 11-4 after halftime.

Four days later, the Cardinals faced a tough test in the No. 2 Sea Gulls. The early portion of the contest featured plenty of back-and-forth, but Salisbury used a 7-0 run late in the 1st half to open up a comfortable lead. The Cards were unable to come back.

On Monday, DiBartolomeo was named the Landmark Conference Offensive Player of the Week.

CUA is currently in South Carolina, taking part in a Habitat for Humanity project. The Cardinals return to action on Wednesday, March 13 when they travel to Pennsylvania to face No. 11 York. Start time is set for 4 p.m.
