SOCCER: Varsity Girls

MPS 2017-18 Varsity Girls Soccer Team
PIAA-DISTRICT 10 CLASS AA REGION 4 | 2016-17 RECORD: 20-6
Winning championships has become a fall tradition at Mercyhurst Prep when it comes to Laker soccer. Both boys and girls teams are led by experienced coaches and faculty, Doug Bakka and Jamie Borowicz, who create a challenging but fun environment. The girls won the PIAA State Championship in 2010 and in 2016 were the PIAA State runners-up while the boys were the PIAA State runners-up in 2010 and 2011. The boys have claimed four out of the last five District 10 Championships. MPS is the place where you can kick in at the highest level.
“Reflecting on my life I think there were many individuals along the way that had a big impact on where I am today and what I have been able to accomplish. . . During high school I always felt that person was Jamie Borowicz, my soccer coach and teacher, who couldn’t have been a better role model for me. At the time I would not have been smart enough to tell you that his commitment to physical fitness was intimately related to artistic ability and intellect, but now I see how important it was to have that example so early on in life. I diffuse quite a bit of stress onto the pavement in the morning, and that in turn allows me to function in a more efficient and creative way at work, and at home, each day. Last year I ran the Steamtown Marathon in Scranton and was able to qualify for the 2016 Boston Marathon.”
