GIRLS' SOCCER AWARD
First, I'd like to begin by letting all of you know that the 2019-2020 Girls' Soccer team just received the United Soccer Coaches Team Academic Award for their exemplary performance in the classroom during the 2019-2020 academic school year. This honor recognizes them as one of only nine high schools from Pennsylvania amongst all the high schools nationally . The Girls' Soccer team has also received this award in 2017 & 2019 and Rachael Tirjan was a member of the Scholar All-American Team in 2018-2019. The reason why I am sharing this with you is because YOU have all impacted these girls in some way, shape, or form and helped them succeed! So even though some of us may be having difficult days or weeks lately, know that YOU have made a difference in the lives of our student-athletes and it has been recognized nationally! So, THANK YOU ALL!
