Four Fall Sports Teams Have Successful Seasons in Spring and Fall

Four Fall Sports Teams Have Successful Seasons in Spring and Fall

A lot has happened on the field this past year, and you can find all the news here. A few teams had to postpone their seasons from fall 2020 to spring 2021. Read about those successful seasons below.

After having their respective fall schedules canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, four University of Scranton teams made the most of a shortened schedule in spring 2021.

Field hockey, men's & women's soccer and volleyball hit their respective fields and courts of play starting on March 6. Each team played four games, apiece, all against Landmark Conference competition. Here are some highlights for each team.

Field Hockey

The defending Landmark Conference champions, the Royals were impressive in their four-game slate, going 4-0, while outscoring their opponents by a staggering 14-0 margin. The season was punctuated on Mar. 28 when Scranton blitzed past Drew, 9-0, on the road.

The Scranton program was also able to honor their 2021 senior class before their Mar. 14 game with Moravian at Weiss Field. The seniors honored were Annie Amentler (Drums, Pa./Hazleton Area), Megan Gallagher (Thorndale, Pa./Bishop Shanhan), Christina Motz (Glenside, Pa./Gwynedd Mercy Academy), Sheila Newby (Media, Pa./Cardinal O'Hara), Brittany Schumann (Andover, N.J./Newton) and Amelia Sharp (Yardley, Pa./Pennsbury).

This fall, the team won the Landmark Championship again. Check out how the fall 2021 season went here.

Women's Soccer

The women's soccer team, also the defending Landmark champs, were just as impressive on the pitch in the spring campaign, going a perfect 4-0, while out scoring the opposition by 12-0 margin.

Junior Grace Elliott (Westfield, N.J./Westfield) was named the Landmark's Athlete of the Week for the Royals, as she scored four goals in four matches for Scranton.

Before the Juniata game on Mar. 7, the Royals honored their 2021 seniors, who were Anna Donnelly (Floral Park, N.J./Sacred Heart Academy), Shae Guilfoyle (West Nyack, N.Y./Pearl River), Mazie Stiles (Nyack, N.Y./Albertus Magnus), Erin Toburen (Harleysville, Pa./Lansdale Catholic) and Alexis Long (Wayne.
