able to accomplish a record of 4-14, which is a great improvement from last year. Aside from our important wins, we bonded greatly over these few months. The team brought together those of us who were already friends and even some of us who may not have even known each other before the season.. We are extremely grateful for the sisterhood we have formed and look forward to improving in the next season. We would also like to thank our coaches for their support during and after the season. We wouldn’t be where we are right now without them.

GIRLS' SOCCER

By: Ashley Torbic ('21) and Nicole Kalinowski ('21)

The Saddle Brook Girls Soccer team had a wonderful season with an outstanding record of 17 wins and 3 losses. With the help of returning coach Andy Gallo and new coach Deandra Donato, the girls made history this season and showed much improvement from last year. Although the Falcons had a rocky start to the season with two losses early on to Waldwick and Emerson, they were able to recover and went on to have a 17 game winning streak proving that winning is contagious. The team had many notable achievements this year. Junior Ashley Georgevich reached one hundred career goals. Ashley Georgevich, Alexis Georgevich, Anna Memija, and Mia Lopez were selected to the first team in the division while Alexis Adams-Duffy, Nicole Kalinowski, Kylie Artemisio, and Tyana Governali were selected to the second team. Goalie Alexis Georgevich made many critical saves this season showing off her skill in the goal. The Lady Falcons won the NJIC tournament, were champions of their division, and even made it to the semifinals of States. In the State Tournament, the Falcons opened up with a 6-1 win against Wallkill Valley, and then went on to defeat New Milford in their next game with a score of 2-1. In the third round of states, the Falcons faced their toughest opponent, Midland Park. This was a tough loss for the team, but their integrity and passion truly showed throughout the entire season. Coach Deandra Donato also won coach of the year. Although the team graduated four seniors this year, they are expected to gain new talent next year. This, combined with the dedication and hard work of everyone involved with the team, will hopefully result in the Lady Falcons making it even farther next season than they did this season.
