On Friday, Feb. 21st, the Cabrini varsity girls basketball team hosted Romulus Summit Academy in a non-league affair.
The game was special, in that it was a Coaches against Cancer game. The Robert Roll Agency of Farmers Bureau Insurance sponsored the game that benefited the American Cancer Society. The Lady Monarchs wore special jerseys provided by Robert Roll. The girls honored one of their own, grade schooler Ava Jabczenski who is battling cancer, with a jersey, flowers and a teddy bear.
The Monarchs battled a young Summit Academy team all night and were able to put the finishing touches on a 62-57 victory with some stiff defense down the stretch. Summit hit three 3-pointers in the last minute, but missed one at the end and Cabrini rebounded for the victory. The Lady Monarchs were led by Sophomore Ania Ghazzwai with 17 points and Senior Caleigh Muglia with 12 points.
