I really want to credit the whole team for learning a new field strategy and being able to implement it this year, said coach Lee Smassanow.
Season highlight: We were able to experience the satisfaction of victory, Smassanow said, and the individual players on the team enjoyed playing soccer and they had a lot of fun doing it.
Other: They were a great bunch of young ladies who demonstrated the qualities of character, sportsmanship, courtesy and support of each other, Smassanow said. It was a great season.

Top goal scorers: Seniors Aileen Semenetz and Danielle Peters led the Lady Bulldogs this season along with a number of goals scored by junior Rebecca Steele.
Other stats: Christina Winski and Megan Moran each contributed a number of assists to help the Lady Bulldogs this year.
Season highlight: We were in a unique situation this year, said coach Mike Mahoney. This was the first year we were playing as a combined team with girls from the Delaware Valley, Jeff-Youngsville and Narrowsburg campuses.
Despite having to adjust to the newly-formed team, the girls managed to make it to the Section IX Class C championship match.
Other: From the kids perspective and from the coaching staffs perspective, it was a very good, growing season, Mahoney said.
