Middle School Sports Fall Recap

Girls’ Soccer
 
The Middle School girls’ soccer team had a great season this fall, finishing with an overall record of 7-2.
 
The Knights especially had a strong offensive attack as they scored six or more goals in five of their nine matches. Overall 12 different girls scored during the season. The defense also played spectacularly as Gill held opponents to one goal in five games and also recorded one shutout.
 
Wins came over Morristown-Beard, Rutgers Prep (twice), Newark Academy, Wardlaw Hartridge (twice) and Oak Knoll.

Girls’ Tennis
 
The Middle School girls’ tennis team began its season in early September and all of the members consistently put in great effort on the courts. The team focused on conditioning, fundamental skill development, understanding of rules, scoring and strategy. The Knights worked on the different strokes that are used in the game such as forehands, backhands, serves, and volleys and the girls showed great improvement throughout the season.
 
The Knights opened up the season against Wardlaw-Hartridge at Homecoming. All the girls had outstanding performances and won the match 4-2. The final match of the season was against Rutgers Prep and the girls pulled out a hard fought victory!
 
“The support we received this year from the parents was outstanding,” said head coach Chris Walsh. “Melissa Toledo was the Team Parent and she always went above and beyond with her commitment to the Team. I truly enjoyed the season and I look forward to the girls continuing to play and improve in the future!”
