Girls’ Soccer Sets Record with Memorable Season
It was a special season for Belmont Day girls’ soccer. The team finished the fall with the best record in the history of the program thanks to 6 wins, 2 losses, and 2 ties. Although it took 17 players and 2 coaches to make it happen, it was the team’s 4 eighth graders who set the table for success. For Stacia Kolodziejski and Abigail Waite who were selected to the team as sixth graders, it was their third year on the team, and there was no question that their experience form past seasons translated to confidence on the field this fall. With support from Stacia and Abigail, the team’s captains, Samantha Friborg and Stephanie Nomicos, were able to create an inclusive team-first environment, while at the same time setting expectations high and holding their teammates accountable for their play on the field. The result of this unique combination was a small community of dedicated athletes who challenged themselves and each other each and every time they stepped on the field. For these 4 eighth graders, it was a memorable way to end their Belmont Day soccer careers, and for the rest of their teammates and coaches it was a season they will never forget. Thanks for the memories, ladies.
