Senior Kelly Carolan
       There is no doubt the girls soccer team here at Sparta is definitely a tremendous source of pride. With an upcoming game in the state tournament against Ramsey on November 4, the team hopes to continue its playoff run and add another win to their strong 14-4 record. When asked what her favorite characteristic of the team is, senior Kelly Carolan says she is, “Proud of how much of a team we are”. Carolan said that the team this year has more depth and more ability for everyone to score than last year. When asked about the toughest game the girls have played in so far, Kelly said it had to be Mendham or Pope John. Goalie Julia Flake (sophomore) also said her favorite thing about the team is “the chemistry between the teammates”. The student section also plays a big role in keeping momentum high and cheering the players on. Seniors Mikey Freeman and Tommy D’Ascoli are some of the leaders of the section. Freeman said the fans are “all about positivity. Everyone wins”. Tommy D’Ascoli also said he likes to support the athletes by “getting really loud and getting into it”. Overall the girls soccer team has had a great season so far and is confident for their game against Ramsey. Julia Flake says, “we are going to win it”.
