His three individual wins are the most in the conference. The junior  averaged 72.03 strokes per round and recorded a league-low round of 62 at the Sam Hall Intercollegiate hosted by Southern Mississippi last September, helping him earn first-team all-conference accolades.

Cabra was only one of two golfers to shoot par or better in all three rounds of the league tournament and finished 6-under par (69-69-72 — 210).
