MEN’S CROSS COUNTRY
The Immaculata men’s cross country team tied the program’s best finish in
the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) Championship Meet placing
fourth, and junior Angel Chimal Rodriguez became the first Mighty Mac
runner to take home the title of CSAC individual champion. Rodriguez led a
trio of Immaculata runners who earned citations from the CSAC for their finish
in the conference championship. Both Rodriguez and sophomore Bobby Rimkis
were recognized as First Team All-CSAC, and sophomore Will Martin was
selected Second Team All-CSAC. Rodriguez went on to cap his 2014 season
by earning All-Region by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches
Association after his 34th-place finish at the NCAA Mideast Regional.
WOMEN’S CROSS COUNTRY
The Immaculata women’s cross country squad won three meets during the
regular season, which culminated in a third-place finish at the 2014 CSAC
Championship. It was the highest finish in the conference championship meet
for the Mighty Macs since the 2000 season, when Immaculata came in second
at the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (PAC) Championship. Helping
Immaculata to its strong finish was sophomore Diana Cusick, who placed ninth
in the field and earned Second Team All-CSAC. Immaculata was also honored
with the CSAC 3-D Award, which honors the CSAC team from each sport
that best exemplifies the NCAA Division III principles of “Discover, Develop,
and Dedicate.”
FIELD HOCKEY
Field hockey made back-to-back CSAC Semifinals appearances as the
Mighty Macs earned the fourth seed by virtue of tiebreakers, with an overall
record of 7-13 and CSAC record of 3-4. Senior Ashley O’Donnell wrapped up
the most successful career in Immaculata history by becoming the first Mighty
Mac ever to reach the 100-point plateau as she finished with exactly 100, with
a program-record 41 goals. This season, she also set a single-season record with
40 points and 17 goals. In all, six Mighty Macs earned All-CSAC honors,
including all five members of the senior class. O’Donnell earned First Team
All-CSAC; seniors Lynda Sheets, Tiffany Lockfeld, and sophomore goalie
Sarah Pasternak earned Second Team All-CSAC; while seniors Danielle
Lopez and Lindsay Cras were named Honorable Mention All-CSAC.
MEN’S SOCCER
The Immaculata men’s soccer team was under new direction during the
2014 season, led by first-year head coach Joe Clementi. The Mighty Macs placed
two players on the Honorable Mention All-CSAC Team as sophomore Patrick
Friend and Kyle Jumalon each earned their first all-conference award. Junior Joe
Wier was named to the CSAC All-Sportsmanship Team. Immaculata finished
the season with a 3-14-1 overall and 1-8 conference mark. Immaculata had
strong goalkeeping this season as its goalies held opponents to a 1.56 goals-
against average (GAA), marking the second-lowest GAA in program history.
WOMEN’S SOCCER
The women’s soccer team completed their third season under head coach
Lisa Parsons with a record of 3-13-1 and a CSAC record of 3-7-1. They
remained in contention for their second-consecutive playoff berth until the final
week of the regular season. Sophomore Emma Koontz was named to the CSAC
All-Sportsmanship Team at the end of the season. The year was highlighted by
a Senior Day to remember by senior Sam Bonvetti who scored a hat trick, the
first in three years for the Mighty Macs. Bonvetti recorded the game-winning
goal in two of the three victories and led the team with four goals this season.
WOMEN’S TENNIS
The Mighty Macs had an outstanding season for the second-consecutive
year as they reached the CSAC postseason in back-to-back seasons for the first
time in a decade. They were led by the undefeated and First Team All-CSAC
pairing of senior Pattie McGinley and sophomore Annaliese Kambouroglos,
who went 10-0 in CSAC play this season. The Mighty Macs went 11-7 overall
with a 7-3 conference record to lock up the fourth seed. The Mighty Macs also
had a team-record six team members earn All-CSAC honors. Junior Emily
Degnan and sophomore Jenna Fratterelli each made the Second Team All-
CSAC; junior Kara Trowbridge was named Honorable Mention All-CSAC;
and senior Paige Sparks took home the CSAC All-Sportsmanship Team award
for Immaculata.
VOLLEYBALL
Immaculata volleyball returned to the postseason for the first time since
2008 as the Mighty Macs earned the fifth seed in the CSAC Tournament.
Immaculata advanced to the semifinals after its 3-1 victory against fourth-
seeded Cairn, but the Mighty Macs’ run ultimately came to an end against
top-seeded Cabrini, 3-0. First-year head coach Jill Holdren was honored as
the CSAC Volleyball Coach of the Year, while junior Jamie Rombach earned
Second Team All-CSAC, and junior Stephanie Johler was on the Honorable
Mention All-CSAC. Immaculata posted an overall record of 18-9 to set a
program record for victories in a single season. The Mighty Macs also went a
program-best 7-4 in CSAC matches.
