MS/HS Girls & Boys Cross Country:

Yesterday the Cross-Country team competed in the GMC Divisional championship race at Thompson Park in Jamesburg. Senior Guin Kennedy dominated the first race of the day leading from the gun to win by an amazing three minutes over the second-place runner. Guin made a statement with her victory to claim the individual Blue Division title. In the boys race senior Joe Jamolawicz led the entire race from the gun to win the individual Blue Division title and complete his second straight undefeated season. Joe has not lost a Blue Division race since his sophomore season which is an accomplishment only achieved by one other runner in school history. Senior Rafael Albarran had a great race placing 3rd overall and Junior Steven Evanski was 8th overall to put the team in position to win the Blue Division team title. In a breakout performance freshman Dan Evanski stepped up with a huge PR of 21:39 to place 4th on the team and 16th overall to secure the division title for the team. Gabe Albarran rounded out the scoring for the team as the 5th man while James Jamolawicz ran a PR of 24:53 placing 6th on the team. Senior Jack Smith overcame a mid-race injury finish strong while PRs were run by freshman Jimmy Mercado, Gavin Ruben and Thomas Cannon. After the race the team celebrated its senior night to honor Joe Jamolawicz, Rafael Albarran, Jack Smith and Guin Kennedy for all of their hard work and dedication which culminated in the boys Blue Division team title and a girls Blue Division individual title. Congratulations to the team. The school is proud of you.

HS Boys Soccer:

We played two games this week. One against Cal Christian, who is undefeated in the division, and lost 6-1. The result against Edison Academy, in the silver division, was a 3-2 win for us. In that game Angel Barillas scored his third hat trick of the season. The team's record stands at 2-8-1. We have one regular season game against Henry Hudson and then a preliminary county tournament game on Saturday.

 

MS Boys Soccer:

The past week has been quiet  but the players are still working hard at practice. Everyone on the team continues to impress with their willingness to try new positions. Only game to report - a humbling loss @ Timothy Christian. While our team never gave up, we couldn't keep up with their rotations but we did see some notable saves from goalkeepers Adam Chihab and Trevor Gardea.

In the Varsity boys race Joe Jamolawicz ran a great race winning a medal with his 31st place performance out of 153 runners. Joe’s time of 18:12 is also the second fastest ever run in school history at Holmdel. Rafael Albarran ran his best race of the season with a time of 19:50.

 HS Boys Soccer:

In the past week the boys varsity soccer team had 2 games that couldn't have been more different. In the first game v. Piscataway was an offensive feat for both teams. After drawing 5-5 in regulation time 20 more minutes were added but neither team could end it. For the second time this season Angel Barillas had a hat trick with Joel Diaz adding the other two goals.

On Monday , senior day, the boys played a shortened game against division winners Middlesex and lost 4-0. The rain threatened and finally a downpour forced the refs to call the game. Parents and friends turned out to honor our seniors-Anthony Vella, Joel Diaz, Abdel Abusherifa. Adam Eldeeb and Jack Ryan Poland. We appreciated the presence of our administrators

Our last game will be home on 10/8 vs. Calvary Christian

Monday September 27th Home match vs. Mother Seton

The Girls Varsity Tennis team lost their match on Senior Night to division rival Mother Seton 1-4. The team was highlighted by the First Doubles Team of Senior Raquel Yanez and Junior Mikayla Coman winning their match 6-0 and the other team Retired in the second set at 4-4. Senior First Singles Alexandra Zaretsky and Junior Second Singles lost their matches with the same score of 3-6, 3-6. Both players were in their matches/games in the sets, but came up short which is not reflected in their overall score. 

HS Boys Soccer:

We have played three games in the last week with some positives along the way. Last Wednesday we lost 8 to 4.  We go to Friday and arguably our best game of the season we lost 2 to 1 to Wardlaw who had beaten us 7-1 two weeks ago. On Monday we played another team that had beaten us decisively 6-1 two weeks ago, and once again the guys showed their grit in the 3 to 1 loss.  I am pleased to say that our guys are showing improvement week to week. What a game! The boys showed that their game has improved over the last two weeks. Two teams that handily beat us the first time faced a different opponent with the Guvs losing by a single goal in both rematches. Our next game was against Piscataway VT, a fast talented team who by the way we beat the first game 2-1. We knew it would be tough. After 100 minutes the teams battled to a 5-5 draw .Notable in this game...Angel Barillas scoring his second hat trick of the season. Joel Diaz's brilliant shot to end with 2 goals. In goal Isaiah saved us half a dozen times with his awesome goal keeping. The spine of the team led by Anthony Vella and Maaz Farooq at backs with Ryan Skokowski and Devin Krass in midfield proved they were up to the speed of our opponents.

I was pleased with the way the guys played today. We certainly had our chances to put the game away and when things went off we were composed enough to earn the draw.

MS Boys Soccer:

MS boys’ soccer team moved to 2-0 on the season after a strong win against Sayreville’s B team, with Jake Richard-Cavallaro and Sebastian Roessle netting their first goals as Anthony Kucharczyk contributed 6 goals. It was an all-around performance from everyone on the team. 

 

HS Girls Soccer:

After a tough start to the season, battling injuries and low numbers, South Amboy Varsity Girls Soccer beat Dunellen in a shutout 2-0 with over 15 shots on the net. Faith Nemeth scored with an assist by Eleny Leonor-Aleman and the second goal was by Eleny Leonor-Alemon assisted by Alexis Moakler. The entire team showed their hard work, dedication, and love for the sport in their relentless pursuit of this well deserved victory. Great job girls!

 

MS Girls Soccer:

The girls middle school soccer team left it all on the field this week securing their first victory against Sayreville! Shout out to captains Izabella Pardo and Ashley Moreira Burgos on scoring their first goals of the season! All the girls gave a valiant effort . Keep up the good work team!

HS Boys Soccer Weekly report September 21

Since my last report we have won one game and lost two.  Still molding a defense for the future because my young guys are seeing and will continue to see quite a bit of time. Our goal scores have been Angel Barillas who has three And Giovanni happy with two. The overall attitude of the team is still very positive and I will attempt to keep it that way for the duration. I did make mention especially for my young guys to begin to watch more soccer on TV.  With two more games this week we look to bounce back.

HS Girls Soccer:

The Varsity Girls Soccer Program has had a tumultuous preseason - searching for enough girls to form a competitive team.  Finally, after much hard work and dedication by the 11 diligent young ladies, the team is ready for their season opener against Dunellen on Monday, September 13th.  Although there are just enough to field a team, there is very little that can hold this group of girls back from success.  They will have a great season!


MS Girls Soccer:

The girls middle school soccer team is off to a great start. Their practices just started and the girls are showing an immense amount of commitment and effort. With their first game right around the corner they are putting in a lot of work and are surely a force to be reckoned with this season! 


HS Boys Soccer:

The season began last Friday against Wardlaw Hartridge. We lost that game 6-2. Our two goals came from Angel Barillas who I suspect will have more coming. Some notables...Davey Cheng, first year in goal, showed much courage as a sophomore. Anthony Vella , our anchor in defense, had his work cut out for the entire game and came up big time and again. A couple of freshmen showed promise and desire when they got their chance to play most notably Luke Nemeth and Dominick Pawlis.

As the season continues I look forward to giving the younger guys more playing time. The overall attitude has been brilliant and the team and the coaching staff{me-lol}are making progress.


MS Boys Soccer:

Middle school boy's soccer had their first practice last week.  We covered basic footwork, cardio with/without the ball, worked out the goalkeeper, and played a mini-scrimmage. We have a full week of practice starting today and our first game is next Tuesday - we still need players or we won't be able to field a team.  Our first game is scheduled for Tuesday, September 21st.
