Starters Returning: 8 | Points Returning: 401 of 516 (77.7%)

Key Loss: John McSorley (Ridley). The anchor of the backline that held opponents to just 4.95 goals per game, McSorley will be impossible to replace, but his legacy should linger this spring.

Key Returner: Erick Zarzecki. Zarzecki quietly put together a dominant season in ’12 (4.90 GAA; 62.4 sv%). He might just be the key if the Cavs have a breakthrough season.

What is Cabrini’s ceiling? God bless them, the CSAC schools improve incrementally every year, but the Cavs still won the conference championship by 10 goals last year. The non-conference schedule is as good as it gets, but when the month of April is spent playing weaker teams, can Cabrini be a contender? Yup. Steve Colfer has mitigated the whole conference dilemma with his scheduling and he’s got a roster to back him up. Senior Bobby Thorp (52g, 37a) headlines a frontline strengthened by sophomore Damon Sobieski (36g, 18a, Avon Grove) and junior Matt Biegel (25g, 12a, West Chester East). The return of Zarzecki, and senior poles Andrew Kvech and Tyler Grau should lessen the blow of losing McSorley.

4. Salisbury (23-0) – National Champion
3. Cortland (21-1) – Finalist
2. Tufts (18-3) – Semifinalist
1. Stevenson (18-5) – Semifinalist
