After recovering from NCA Camp, the Varsity Cheer Team switched gears to prep for football season and our first home game of the season. They loved cheering the Warriors on to victory against Pottsgrove! With family, friends and some beloved alumni in attendance, the team performed well, showing off what they've been working on to kick off the 23-24 season.
Our standout athletes of the week are our freshmen girls, Sadie Emerson, Kendall Larrivee, Sarah Miller and Kayla Watson. They did a fantastic job at their first HS football game! They cheered confidently, stunted strong and didn't let any nerves show. As they acclimate to the balance that HS sports require, we are excited to see what the season holds for the class of 2027!

Boys Varsity Soccer opened up their regular season with a bit of a thud, losing 0-4 to a very good Upper Dublin squad. The boys played hard but just couldn't manage to get things rolling in the loss. There were moments to build on, some solid combination play through the midfield area with Ethan Kumar and Damian Mularz. Cole Larcinese and Cole Kleger each had good chances in the attack and almost got the team on the board in the first half.
Man of the Match honors go to Matthew Chung for a good overall showing in his first Varsity match.
Boys JV Soccer opened their campaign on Friday with a 2-2 draw against Upper Dublin. The goal scorers were Pat Callaghan and Sean Harris, with assists from Henry Goldstein and Aaron Hamilton.
