The Fall season ended with a win at the Mercer Fall Classic!
Prep Soccer played most of its home games to the University of Pennsylvania, giving them one of the nicest home fields in the Catholic League. Another highlight was traveling to Washington, D.C., to play St. John’s. Several Prep soccer players received individual honors: Three All Catholic nominations. 2nd Team All Catholic for Timmy Comey ’26 (second team), All Rookie Team Honors for Ryan Griffith ’27 (all rookie team), Honorable Mention Joey Sheridan ’24 (honorable mention). Congratulations to Owen Schultze ’24 who will continue his soccer career at the University of Scranton.
The fall Ultimate Frisbee schedule consists mostly of tournaments and scrimmages to prepare for the spring league season. For the second consecutive year, the Prep hosted the Oliver Ricciardelli ’22 Memorial Tournament, a tribute to our former captain. The squad was able to field both a Varsity and JV for this season, an opportunity for many players to experience playing time. The Prep also won the annual Kit Kat Tournament.
