Fall Sports Highlights

Tennis: Nicole Reynoso, ’23 and Mia Mendoza, 23 as team captains were instrumental in leading the team in practice, coordinating information and making sure we have players for matches. After dropping the first 4 regular season matches, our SDA Girls tennis team didn’t give up. They stormed back, winning the next 4 regular season matches, with all of the players stepping up as we juggled our lineup throughout the season due to illness and injury. We look forward to playing in the Hudson County post season tournament. Of special note, Cosima Wilkens, ’23 from Germany and Beatrice Crespo, ’23 both won all of their matches. And Mia Mendoza, ’23 who gave us our first team win and first 3rd singles win, as well as our first 1st doubles win. In every team win we have had, she has won her match. And in a couple of her losses, she had close 3 set matches.

 

Cross Country: Cross Country began their competition schedule hosting the 27th Annual SDA Invitational. Twenty schools attended, some of which represent New Jersey’s best.

Volleyball: The Saint Dominic Academy Blue Devils Varsity Volleyball team proudly holds the record of 4-4 in the Hudson County Interscholastic Athletic League (HCIAL) National Division. During the 2021-2022 season, the Varsity Volleyball team has achieved many major accomplishments. They ended their regular season with an 8-10 record. They have participated in the Harrison Tournament at Harrison High School against a variety of competitive high school girls volleyball teams. They concluded the tournament with a 3-5 record, bringing home second place in the Silver Bracket. The Varsity Volleyball team obtained their first win in the HCIAL County Tournament in program history defeating Snyder High School. The SDA Volleyball team’s success can only be credited to the hard work and dedication of all the members of the team.

 

Soccer: The SDA soccer team had a rough start to the season but under the leadership of the senior captains, Makenzie Kwiatkowski, Isabella Goncalves and junior captain Olivia Torres, the team practiced ball skills, plays, tactics and teamwork. To teammates, they were supportive, cheering each other on, consoling when there was a loss and encouraging each other to be the best they can be. The team has improved their skills and broadened their understanding of the game. Coach Jessica Ioria is sad to see this year’s season end but is looking forward to next year.
