Fall Update – Upper School Girls’ Athletic Program

Category:

The fall season is underway here at The Park School and teams are looking strong! We’ve fielded six Upper School teams in the Girls’ Program, including Cross Country, Soccer, Tennis, and Field Hockey.

Girls’ Varsity Field Hockey is off to a great start. Senior Captain Tyler Kasoff is proud of the work the young team is doing at this point in the season, “we have great potential, our skills improve each practice, and we’re using new skills each game,” Kasoff said. “We’ve had great touches in the circle and are putting the ball between the posts! I walk off the field happy to be a part of my team and proud of our game.” Currently 3-3 and undefeated on their home field, the team members are an exciting mix of young players and a strong core of returning players. This week they will face St. Paul’s School for Girls on October 2.

The Girls’ Soccer program is a strong, deep group of players this year with an enthusiastic crop of ninth graders joining a solid group of returning players. Going into a busy week of games, the team stands at 3-2, facing St. Vincent’s Pallotti on September 30 and Concordia Prep on October 2. With such a large group of players, the team is also playing a few JV level games, winning its first JV match against Glenelg Country School by netting three goals while two of our rookie goalies allowed only one goal between them for a final score of 3-1.  

Despite a close loss, Girls’ Cross Country opened strong with Park runners crossing the finish line in first and second place against Friends School. First-year Varsity runner Julia Luljak ’19 won the race overall with a time of 22:12, followed by teammate Clara Brill-Carlat ’17 with a 25:55. Thirty-one runners competed between the two schools and Park looks forward to a rematch later this season. In the second race of the season, Luljak and Brill-Carlat once again took the top two spots, but St. John’s Catholic Prep managed to capture the next few places, winning the meet in a very close 25-30 victory. The team secured a forfeit win over the Key School, and both Luljak and Brill-Carlat improved their times with Luljak running a 21:40 and Brill-Carlat running a 23:33.

Girls’ Varsity Tennis has seen some stiff competition in the A division this season. While the team has lost several close matches 3-2 in the closing sets, and after falling again to St. Paul’s School for Girls in a tie-breaker this week, they’re still competing beautifully and hope to come out on top against Roland Park Country School on October 1.

Off to an exciting start, Girls’ JV Field Hockey won their first three games of the season. They are a small but mighty group, working hard each day and getting excellent results. The team’s next game is against St. Paul’s School for Girls on Friday October 2.
