For the first time in school history, the high school’s varsity girls soccer team captured the New York State Class C Championship after defeating Elmira Notre Dame 3-1 on Nov. 15.

The win came after an upsetting 2014 season, where the Lady Royals lost the state championship following a three-goal defeat by Bronxville. Using the loss as motivation, the team resolved to win in 2015.

“Our goal from the beginning of the season was to bring home the state title after losing in the finals last year,” said coach Allyson Wolff. “The girls were determined and more confident this season. I’m so proud of them for this amazing accomplishment.”

Over the past season, the team worked hard to build their playing skills, as well as synergy among teammates. They even adopted a new team motto: “Strong alone, unstoppable together.”

Their hard work shined through as they took the field at SUNY Cortland. Throughout the game, the girls made a number of power plays, including Brittany Fazin scoring a goal from 20 yards and goalkeeper Brianna Scarda.

The district extends its congratulations to the entire team and coaching staff.
