SOCCER: Junior Varsity Girls

MPS 2018-19 Junior Varsity Girls Soccer Team
2017-18 RECORD: 7-10
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 2017 and in 2016 were the PIAA State runners-up. 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.”
