Three Scarsdale Varsity A Girls Soccer Players Honored At All Section Award Dinner

soccersectionalsOlivia Bryant, Nayumi Parente-Ribeiro and Allison StaffordOn Monday evening, November 12, three Scarsdale Varsity A girls soccer players were honored at the 2018 All Section awards dinner at Colonial Terrace in Cortlandt Manor. The awards dinner occurs annually after the conclusion of the high school soccer season and recognizes the top high school female soccer players in Section 1, which consists of all high schools in Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess and Putnam counties in New York State.

The 2018 Scarsdale Varsity A Soccer team was represented by senior forward Nayumi Parente-Ribeiro, who was All Section honorable mention; junior forward Olivia Bryant, who was All Section; and senior mid-fielder Allison Stafford, who was All Section for the third consecutive year. Stafford was also named to the Westchester/Rockland/Putnam/Dutchess Coaches Association’s Elite 12, which recognizes the top senior girl soccer players in Section 1 who have also have excelled in the classroom. Head coach Mindy Genovese described Bryant as “a dynamic forward with explosive speed, technical ability and powerful shot who was a scoring threat every time she touched the ball.” Regarding Stafford, Coach Genovese stated: “Allison was the key playmaker for our team who won countless balls to start our counter-attacks. She is an exceptional player who played with perseverance and grit and displayed great leadership on and off the field.”

2018 was another successful season for the League champion Scarsdale's Girls Varsity A soccer team, which after a slow start against the top non-League teams in the Section, ended the season with a 9-7-1 record. The team peaked at the end of the season, going undefeated in its last nine games before losing in the quarterfinals in the playoffs, taking eventual Section champion Arlington to overtime in a 1-0 loss in a game that could easily have gone the other way. The Raiders will graduate nearly a dozen seniors in 2019 but there is considerable talent that will be returning next year, making the team well positioned for another successful season and playoff run.
