Fall Sports Recap & Sports Honors Announced

November 24, 2015


All of our fall teams—Cross Country, Field Hockey, Soccer, Swimming & Diving, and Volleyball—qualified for the CIAC State Tournament.

Cross Country battled through several injuries this season but showed resiliency in qualifying for both the Southern Connecticut Conference and CIAC meets. The team was led by captains Cassidy Collins and Gabriela dos Santos and coached by Bill Sikorsky.

Field Hockey had their best season in school history with 11 wins and 6 losses. Captains Francesca Campanelli and Jenna D’Agostino received All Southern Connecticut Conference honors, and Jenna was also selected Second Team All-State. The team moved on to the second round with a brilliant first round win over defending state champ Daniel Hand in tournament play.

Soccer had a fine season under the leadership of captain Emily Wielk compiling a 9-5-4 season with a dramatic win over Daniel Hand in the state tournament on penalty kicks. The team made all 5 PK’s with Meghan Jerram solidifying the match on the final kick. Kayla McMillen and Emily Wielk received SCC All-Division honors.

Swimming & Diving had a productive season for coach Steve DiVerniero again qualifying for SCC, CIAC States, and the CIAC Open competition in their respective events. Captains Jaime Robinson and Madeline Fitzgerald showed outstanding leadership and Jaime, along with sophomore Megan Duffy, were selected to the All SCC Team. Jaime was named All-State for the fourth consecutive year.

Volleyball, under second year coach Mia Malafronte, continued to perform at a high level. The team again qualified for the state tournament led by captains Caitlyn Keish and Kelly Mordecai, recording a 10 win and 8 loss season in the difficult SCC Conference. Caitlyn Keish and Chrissy Chow made All-Division SCC honors.
