Head athletic trainer Rachael Flanders recently announced the addition of two full-time athletics trainers, as Shawn Farmer and Samantha Maiorino have joined the Cavaliers’ staff.

“Because of their knowledge and various athletic training experiences, Shawn and Samantha have so much to offer the student-athletes at Cabrini,” Flanders commented. “I look forward to the addition of such enthusiastic individuals to Cabrini’s athletic department.”

Farmer comes to Cabrini after completing his master’s degree in Exercise Science and Physical Education at McDaniel College. During his time at McDaniel, Farmer provided primary athletic training coverage to a variety of programs, including wrestling, field hockey, volleyball, cross country, basketball and softball.

No stranger to Cabrini, Farmer was also a student trainer for the Cavaliers while he was an undergraduate at Eastern University. Farmer worked with Flanders during the Fall 2012 semester, assisting the Blue and White’s field hockey, soccer, volleyball and cross country teams.

Maiorino comes to Cabrini after completing a graduate internship at Edinboro University, where she provided primary athletic training for the Fighting Scots’ volleyball, basketball and softball programs.  Maiorino also provided coverage for the 2017 PSAC wrestling and indoor track and field championships.

Prior to her time at Edinboro, Maiorino gained extensive experience as an undergraduate at Lock Haven University.  In addition to working with the Bald Eagles’ track, men’s basketball and football teams, Maiorino also worked with student-athletes at Gwynedd Mercy, Lycoming, Central Mountain High School and the Lock Haven Rehabilitation Center.

Farmer and Maiorino replace Kelsey Boulier and Zack Hackett, who left the University during the summer.
