Girls soccer has officially announced the nine senior captains for the 2019 season. 

Seniors Sydney Boyd, Sydney Caccamo, Ava Ferrari, Rylee Fountain, Sarah Hennig, Carolyn Ives, Caroline Leary, Katie Powell, and Alexa Scott have been elected by head coach Max Fantl to take on the captain responsibilities. 

“I’m so excited to finish my journey as a high school soccer player as a captain alongside some of my closest friends,” Ives said. 

Last year, the team was lead by captain 2019 alumna Alexa Mezzanotte and had a successful season, ending with a 13-5-5 record. The team worked their way to the state championship where they lost to Tolland. Captains and players plan to once again make a deep postseason run.

“The whole team is super excited to be back. We have a lot of returning players and we all share a common goal of wanting to make it back to the championship,” Hennig said.

The girls kicked off their season Thursday, September 12, against Bristol Eastern, with a draw. This year, they are playing in the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) Class LL. To view their scores and schedules, visit the Sports section of The Voice.
