The Hudson Catholic girls soccer team just completed one of the best seasons in its short history on campus. Despite falling to Paramus Catholic in the state tournament, the Hawks finished the year 10-4 and hosted a state tournament game for the first time since its inception in 2012. The Hawks started the season 8-0 and won the division this year. “This was the best year in our history,” head coach Victor Pesantez said. “It was a great year to prove to people that we can be a contender.”
Among the many firsts for the team this year were wins over North Arlington and McNair Academic, both program firsts. The team went undefeated in the division along the way. Better than any achievements on the field, however, was the way the team bonded off the field. Senior Gianna Giordano transferred into Hudson Catholic this year and said she feels like she’s been here since day 1. “They treat me like I’ve been there all 4 years,” she said. “I didn’t expect to have balloons and such put on my locker (for senior night). I’m friends with them all and I have a whole team where I can talk to everybody. There was no jealousy on the team…we all needed each other.“
From all of us at Hudson Catholic, congratulations on a great season girls!
