Freedom graduate and Cabrini College freshman, Jen Grenauer, completed her first volleyball season as an outside hitter for the Cavaliers.

"It was definitely different than high school. There was different speed, different tactics. Everybody's tall. In high school, I was the tallest one. When we first started, we played against Johns Hopkins and DeSales. It was so fast- paced. High school wasn't like that at all," Grenauer said.

Coached by Eric Schaefer, Grenauer had her fair share of starts and playing time.

"He's very motivating and not downgrading. If you mess up, he pulls you aside and tells you what you did wrong. If you do something good, he compliments you on what you did," Grenauer said about her coach.

The Cavaliers finished the season with a record of 20-10 overall, 10-1 in the Colonial States Athletic Conference.

One of the highlights of Grenauer's season was defeating Richard Stockton College, 3-1, last month.

"We played a tri-match with Stockton College and NYU. Stockton was supposed to be one of the best. They were the team to beat, and we beat them. That was a big achievement," she said.

In their last regular season game, the Cavaliers lost to Eastern University, 1-3, but not without a fight.

"They're amazing, but we took a game from them," said Grenauer.

In the CSAC Tournament, Cabrini defeated Baptist Bible College, 3-0, before falling to Neumann University, 2-3.

In the Eastern College Athletic Conference Tournament, Cabrini defeated Lebanon Valley College, 3-0, but lost in the semifinal to top-seeded Bethany College, 0-3.

Grenauer had five kills in the game against Bethany.
