Sleepy Hollow Varsity Soccer Teams Enjoy Successful Seasons

• Bookmarks: 64


November 12, 2015

|by Heather Colley|

Fall 2015 was a stand-out season for the boys and girls varsity soccer teams of Sleepy Hollow.

The boys’ team built on solid records in recent years to post an impressive record of nine wins and five losses. This was good enough to place the team as the seventh seed for the sectional tournament, the highest seed that the team has achieved in five years. The season included signature wins over traditional powerhouses such as Keio Academy, Edgemont and Irvington.
Unfortunately, the team could not capitalize on its regular season success as it was knocked out of the sectional playoff tournament by Pelham.

The boys’ team has posted improved performances over the last five years, making the playoffs each year and scoring impressive wins. A seventh place ranking in 2015 speaks to the hard work of the coaches, athletes and parents in building a program that has gone from strength to strength and which is gaining a great deal of respect within the section.

The girls’ varsity team also enjoyed a successful season, securing a spot in the postseason sectional tournament, and winning its first play-off game against Beacon, 4-2. The team, boasting a combination of veteran upperclassmen and promising newcomers, was ultimately eliminated from the playoffs by the top seeded team in the region, Somers. Anyone who went to watch the girls team this year could not help but be impressed by the girls’ commitment, camaraderie and enjoyment of the game.

While both teams had very successful seasons, and bid farewell to very accomplished senior players this year, there is a lot to be hopeful about in future seasons as there is a solid pipeline of strong underclassmen already playing on varsity and JV teams. In addition, both teams benefitted from playing some, if not all, of their games on the new turf fields.

Many of these players have come through the ranks of the Tarrytown AYSO program, one of the largest youth soccer programs in the region. In recent years, the Tarrytown AYSO program has evolved to incorporate travelling club teams that play in highly competitive leagues against some of the best teams in the region. This experience has proven a great benefit to the varsity teams this year.
