Although the winter sports seasons of basketball and swimming are underway, we have one fall sports team still competing. It has been a wonderful season for our seventh and eighth grade soccer players, under the direction of Coaches Levine and O’Rourke, as they battled their way to the top of league. Concluding the regular season as Champions earned them a place in the Region 17 tournament, as well as an invitation to represent the region in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Championship Tournament. As runner-up in the tournament, we headed into the AoP Championships as a number 2 seed, and last Saturday faced a tough squad from St. Alphonsus. We scored in the first half and played solid defense for the remainder of the game, to finish with a 1-0 victory and a trip to the “final four of soccer.”
On Saturday, November 21, our Varsity Soccer team will play in a semi-final game, the winner of which moves on to Sunday’s championship game. Our game will be played at St. Bede (Holland, PA) at 2:30 pm.
Congratulations and the best of luck on the weekend!! Thanks for representing each of us here at Villa Maria Academy and all in Region 17.
