Lacrosse

After a dominating 2020-2021 season in which the Lacrosse team won the NJIGLL Independence Division Championship, the Panthers had a resounding 2021-2022 season which featured great comebacks and strong teamwork on the field. Under Head Coach Kim Wood, the team went 10-9 on the season (6-4 in their last 10 regular season games) and made it to the Quarterfinals of the NJSIAA Tournament, Non-Public B. In the first round of the tournament, the Panthers defeated Newark Academy 13-11 with Avery Amato '22 scoring 3 goals. 

The team was led in great part by Annalisa Bio '22, who scored 46 goals, 55 points, and 9 assists in 19 games this season. Avery Amato '22 garnered 37 goals, 44 points, and 7 assists throughout the season as well. Rounding out the seniors on the team was Erin Kilgore '22 who had 9 goals, 18 points, and 9 assists on the season. Up-and-coming leaders of the team, Colleen Dooley '23 and Scarlett Clapps '25 played a heavy hand in scoring goals throughout the season, with Colleen scoring 32 goals and Scarlett scoring 29 goals. The team has its eyes set on a strong 2022-2023 season in pursuit of another Divisional Championship.

Softball

The Softball team played this past season as a Co-Op with Villa Walsh Academy to help bolster both program's participation in the sport. As the two school's students spent time together, bonding under the tutelage of Head Coach Andrew Jacobs, the girls began to play better as a team with each passing game. Morgane Farrell '24 had a season for the ages with a .512 batting average, .610 slugging percentage, 21 hits, 14 runs, and 9 RBI. Morgane collected her 50th hit of her young career early on in the season, giving hope for more milestones to come in her future softball career at the Academy. 

The Panthers look forward to a more competitive 2022-2023 season with Coach Jacobs at the helm and some underclasswomen returning to the field, including Ava Orr '25, Zoe MacWhannell '25, Anabella Biondo '23, and Rebekah Marsh '24.

Track and Field

The Track and Field team had another record-breaking season as the girls followed in the footsteps of years past and etched their names in Academy sport records history. Under returning Head Coach Kayla Stolarczuk and new Assistant Coach Ciara McGovern, the Track and Field Team focused on new strength and conditioning exercises to prepare for the season. This additional focus on strength and conditioning helps our athletes achieve new heights in their athletic careers.

Throughout the season, new school and personal records were met and exceeded. Early on in the season in a double meet against Boonton High School and Kinnelon High School, Caroline O'Callaghan '24 took first place in Discus, Emma Dietz '23 broke her personal record in the 400m Hurdles, and Sophia Vail '23 broke her personal record in Triple Jump. Soon after at the Randolph Relays, Emma Dietz, Caroline O'Callaghan, and Sophia Vail medaled in the 3x400m Hurdles, Maggie Flanagan '22, Caroline O'Callaghan, and Mia Foer placed 5th in Discus, and Maggie Flanagan brook an Academy record in Discus with a throw of 83.1 feet. Toward the end of the season, Kathleen Byrne '23, Allison Shannon '23, Mackenzie Schubert '22, and Whitney Teagan '25 broke an Academy record for 4x100m Relay with a time of 56.12 seconds.

Students receive a personal coach to create training sessions geared toward their individual abilities. At the end of the season, the stable hosts a show which students can participate in to showcase the skills they have developed.
