Rivers' Brooke Heinsohn '16 Named to U-18 National Team For Upcoming Training Camp
Rivers senior goalkeeper Brooke Heinsohn ’16 was named to the United States U-18 Women’s Soccer National Team for an upcoming training camp in Mexico City, where they will play two games against Mexico’s U-20 Women’s National Team.
The training camp will take place from August 8-16 with the games being played on August 13 and 15 in Mexico City. All 20 players that were named to the roster were born in 1998 and this trip starts the group’s push to qualify for the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in France.
Brooke is one of two goalkeepers and one of just two players from New England to be selected for this training camp, the other being a forward from Connecticut. She has been training with the USWNT since the spring when she attended a training camp at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California.
Brooke helped lead her club team, NEFC, to a national championship this summer. NEFC topped PDA South 96 Force from New Jersey, 5-2, at the National Premier Leagues National Finals in Westford, Indiana. You can watch the full game here.

Groton Girls' Soccer: 2014 NEPSAC Class B Champions!
Groton’s girls soccer team clinched the NEPSAC Class B championship Sunday with a decisive 2-0 win over Wilbraham & Monson.
The girls delivered a one-two punch in the first half, with Dorrie Varley-Barrett ’15 scoring the first goal and Caitlyn DiSarcina ’17 putting another into the net about two minutes later. Caroline Morss '15 assisted on the first goal, and Carrie Moore '17 got the assist on the second.
Wilbraham & Monson could not recover. After a tight second half, the game ended with the Groton School girls victorious. The team had proved its mettle the day before with a nail-biting victory over Rivers School, a game that was scoreless throughout and ended in penalty kicks.
"The girls were confident, determined, and poised," said Coach Ryan Spring of Sunday's title match. "I was worried about a letdown after the Rivers game, but the Sixth Formers made sure we were up for it. I am just so proud of the team!"
Congratulations to Groton’s champions!..More Information

The Governors earned their second consecutive New England Prep School Class B Championship with a 1-0 double overtime win over Rivers.

St. Luke's 2011 NEPSAC Girls' Soccer Class C Champions
Congratulations to the Girls Varsity Soccer team.
NEPSAC Class C Champions...That was the goal for both St. Luke's and Brewster Academy heading in to the 11:00 a.m. Class C New England Championship game on Sunday at Pomfret School. Both teams came to Pomfret fresh off thrilling NEPSAC Semi-Final games as St. Luke's defeated St. Mark's 2-1 and Brewster defeated Greens Farms Academy 1-0, both on Saturday afternoon. The toll those games had taken on both teams was obvious as the game started off sluggish and sloppy with both teams giving away the ball frequently, neither side able to build any consistent offensive from the back through the midfield. St. Luke's had the three best opportunities of the half spread across a ten minute period. Caroline Parsons '13 took a free kick from 22 yards out that bounced off the crossbar, Anne Troy '12 found herself on the receiving end of a St. Luke's cross but her header found the post instead of the netting, and Salma Anastasio '14 was stopped cold on a breakaway by Brewster keeper Danielle Tidd '13. The teams went into the break tied at 0-0 with St. Luke's holding the advantage in shots at 8-3.
