Monday Night Double-Header; Final Regular Season Matches

The JV clinched a first place finish tonight with a 3-0 win over John Paul.  Katie Ripple scored 2 goals and assisted the final goal of the game, scored by Rebecca Traynor.  The Lady Vikings improved to 4-0-1 in district and 11-2-2 overall.

The varsity didn't waste anytime as they built a 5-0 lead at halftime during Senior Night and improved to 12-1-0 in district and 21-1-5 overall.  First half goals were scored by Katy Hirschfeld, Gwennie Puente, and Elena Guerra.

"We were able to play a lot of players and continue to see our depth," commented head coach Jay Fitzgerald.

Sarah Brown, Jordan Gamboa, Marissa Baldasti, and Emily Keoughan scored in the second half.

Tonight was a very special night for 7 seniors… Emma Chandlee, Maddie Cook, Elena Guerra, Elizabeth Havenhill, Erin Hippert, Adrian Kallas, and Madeline Rodenbaugh.  These 7 seniors have meant a great deal to this program.  They have contributed in so many ways to the traditions of the program and mission of the school.  All of these players have been a part of the Nolan Catholic Women’s Soccer Program since they stepped foot on campus their freshman year.  The value they add to the program, the school, and the community is priceless.  They have helped the program win their 500th game, win almost 75 games, gain national respect, win back to back TAPPS JV Championships, win their 24th Regional Championship, 2 Final Four Appearances and a State Runner-up finish.  They are leaders on and off the field and role models to our younger and future LVS players and not to mention, other athletes in the school.  These 7 seniors continue to grow each and every day and all have bright futures ahead of them.  THANK YOU SENIORS.

The Lady Vikings will take on Ursuline to wrap up the regular season tomorrow night at home.  The JV will kick-off at 6:00pm and the Varsity will follow at 7:30pm.
