Cabrini kicked off their 2024 season with an impressive 8-0 victory over Clarks Summit on Saturday at Cabrini-Carroll Field in Radnor. Utilizing six pitchers, the Cavaliers held their opponents to just three hits in the season opener for both clubs. 
 
The game started strong for Cabrini, with Dom Marotta retiring the first six batters. Blake Weinstein took over in the third inning and continued the solid pitching performance, supported by Hunter Kraiza, Andrew Smith, Josh Colon, and Ricky Dombrowski, who all contributed to the shutout. 
 
Offensively, the Cavaliers managed to capitalize on scoring opportunities, particularly in the third and seventh innings. Key plays included Ryan Dipper's two-run single in the third inning and Colton Narciso's two-run double later in the same frame. Dipper (3-for-3, three runs scored), along with Jaden Dickerson (2-for-2, three walks) and Zack Brook (2-for-4), played crucial roles in keeping the offense going. Narciso finished with three RBIs, while Dustin Sutton chipped in with two hits. 
 
Cabrini's pitchers kept Clarks Summit runners at bay, not allowing any to advance past second base. 
 
The Cavaliers will play a pair of local foes next weekend, facing Cairn on Saturday before taking on Rosemont on Sunday. Both games will take place next weekend at Cabrini-Carroll Field, with the first pitch scheduled for 1 pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
