The boys and girls cross country team participated in the CAL championship on 10/19 at Stockton University. The boys came in 2nd place overall. Senior Amir Halim was our first finisher. The girls came in 3rd place with senior Kiki Schlemo placing 4th overall.
Girls tennis finished the regular season with wins over Middle Township (3-2) and Lower Cape May (4-1) this week. Freshman Camille More had an outstanding rookie season with a 12-4 record at first singles. Regular season team record is 8-8. The team moves on to the South Jersey tournament this weekend and the CAL tournament next week.
EHT Girl's Soccer keeps rolling with victories in the first two rounds of the CAL tournament as well as a win over OLMA to move to 12-3-2 on the year. This five-game win streak in which the Eagles have outscored their opponents 19-2 has propelled EHT into the 5th seed in the South Jersey Group IV playoff which starts next week.
Let's recap: Last Friday, EHT handed the Mainland Mustangs a loss for the third time this year. This time, it came in the CAL tournament quarterfinals with a scoreline of 4-0! Junior captain Aniyah Parker banged in two goals to lead the Eagles while sophomore Brielle VonColln, EHT's leading point scorer, netted one herself. Freshman Madelyn Johnson put the game out of reach with a goal late in the game for her first career varsity goal. Junior Abby Lyon made four saves in the shutout.
EHT then took on a 12-3 OLMA team who finished 2nd in the CAL National conference. EHT scored early and often with VonColln and senior captain Gabriella Piantadosi netting one a piece in the first 15 minutes of the game. Sophomore Arianna Nguyen and senior DaMyah Burrous each scored spectacular goals on corner kicks to widen the lead for the Eagles. The final score was 4-1 and propelled the Eagles to eleven wins on the season.
On Wednesday, EHT traveled to the CAL United conference champions Lower Cape May who sported a 12-2 record coming into the match. This CAL semi-final was never close as EHT controlled more than 80% of the possession and netted three in the first half. Once again, the dynamic duo of VonColln and Piantadosi scored one each, and sophomore Abby Mathis tallied a brace with a goal in each half to lead the Eagles to a 4-0 victory and a birth into the CAL final. The Eagles await the winner of Ocean City vs Holy Spirit. Junior goalkeeper Lyon kept the clean sheet with a record-tying 11th shutout on the season.
The Eagles close out the season with the CAL final on Monday, a trip to Holy Cross Prep HS on Tuesday, and the beginning of the SJ Group IV playoff on Thursday. Good luck, Lady Eagles!
Girls' Volleyball qualified for the CAL tournament as the 6 seed after beating Absegami last Thursday. The ladies made the trip west to the 3 seed, OLMA, on Tuesday. Despite a valiant effort led by Averie Harding (junior, 5 kills) and Avery Hickey (sophomore, 5 kills) the girls' fell to OLMA in 2 sets. Scores were a competitive 25-20 and 25-23. The JV team defeated OLMA earlier in the afternoon in 2 sets. Izzy Veltri (sophomore) and Kaylee Beck (freshman) had 4 aces each.
