Girls Varsity Soccer Team

Has Historic Season

By Daniel Aberdeen

 

When Coach Francesco Notaristefano says that this New Rochelle High School girls soccer Varsity season has been "historic", he is not exaggerating. First, the team went undefeated in league play, going 8-0, something that they have never done before. Then, they won the league, outright, another thing that has never been done before. The overall record of 14 wins, 1 tie and 1 loss, is the best is school history. Finally, the team's forward, Teresa Deda, had the highest goal and assists combination of any player in the Section with 19 goals and 14 assists. Led by team captains Nora Fitzgerald (defense), Christina Livaccari (midfield), and Julia Zaccaria (midfield), the team began their playoff run on October 25th on a Friday night, under the lights.  The Huguenots came away with a victory, winning 5-1.  The next game was the Section Quarter-Finals against Suffern, on October  28th.  New Rochelle came up with the win again in a hard fought game, winning 1-0 (goal by Teresa Deda).  Only four teams remain standing in Section 1.  The Huguenots will take on North Rockland on October 31st in the Section Semi-Finals (before print time).
