Cabrera collected a pair of #1 singles wins this past week against Treasure Valley and Skagit Valley. She then paired with Alexis Maison to gather wins in the #1 doubles against the Chukars and Cardinals.

"Miriam is an aggressive and powerful lefty who dictates points both with her enormous serve and by finding her way to the net," said Thunderbird head coach Laura Rosa. "Miriam’s strengths also lie in the intangibles, she plays with a lightness and joy that can’t be replicated.  In doubles especially, Miriam is a force.  Most often her opponents do whatever they can to avoid putting the ball anywhere within her reach."

To top it off, defensively he made one of the best plays I’ve seen all year at shortstop. It was fun to watch him play this weekend!"
