Girls’ Soccer posts another strong season
Valley seniors 'tough to replace'
Sport: Girls’ Soccer
Coach: Amy Lombardo
Season Overview: After losing ten seniors from last season’s 18-2-1 campaign, the Indians still put forth a solid season in 2018. Valley reached the quarterfinals of the North 1, Group 3 tournament where they eventually fell to Ramapo. Wins against Ridgewood and West Essex were two of Valley’s most notable wins of the season, the latter coming in round one of the state tournament.
Key Players from this Season: Ari Quevedo (Sr.), Amanda McGlone (Sr.), Carli Piretra (Sr.), Samantha Ingannamorte (Sr.), Kyra Kennedy (Sr.), Kyra Kennedy (Sr.), Julia Spadafino (Sr.)
Key Losses for Next Season: PV’s departing senior class will impact the Indians next season.
“They’re going to be tough to replace because they took up so many minutes,” assistant coach Ken DelSanto said. “They played a lot of key positions so the underclassmen have some big shoes to fill.”
Best Win of the Season: Beating Ridgewood 2-0 was one of the biggest highlights of Valley’ season.
“They were one of the top teams in the county and we took care of them,” DelSanto said.
What to Look Forward to for Next Year: Valley will look to continue to develop its group of returning players, including Olivia Jones and Mallory Downs, and have them fill the roles of the graduating seniors.
