The Verona girls’ soccer team scored seven first half goals en route to an 8-0 victory over the Hoboken Red Wings. The Hillbillies showed a well balanced scoring attack with eight players netting goals. Jill Cummings, Colleen Farrell, Claire Fitzpatrick, Amanda Flores, Laura Hart, Taylor Lavery, Olivia Marino and Jill Sprong all scored. Christine Farawell added an assist. Diana Flores had two saves in goal.

The volleyball team took two out of three matches yesterday for their first win of the season at the hands of rival Cedar Grove. After taking the first game 25-15 they dropped a close second contest 25-23 before easily winning the rubber match 25-10.

Girls’ tennis kicked off the season with a tough match against the MKA Cougars. Jackie Noyes dropped her first game in first singles but battled back to take the match 6-7, 6-2, 6-2. Ciara Davison lost her singles match 1-6, 4-6 and Allie Vacarro fell 3-6, 4-6. Verona picked up a point in doubles when the team of Caroline Chivily and Briana Tedesco took home a win. The loss put the Hillbillies at 0-1 on the season.

Today in Hillbilly Country, the boys’ soccer team plays at Centennial Field against Caldwell at 7 p.m. and the cross country team travels to Branch Brook Park for a meet.
