FRCS Cross Country
The Boys and Girls Cross Country team did an amazing job this season. FRCS runners consistently placed in the top 20 in nearly all events and represented FRCS proudly in each Championship Meet!
Captains Isabel Koran and Saatvik Garhwal demonstrated the leadership needed to bring this program to an exciting new level. Coaches Mallery Andreozzi and Lizz Wieners did another amazing job getting the student athletes to improve on their individual scores and times all season! This was the best overall season based on team wins, scores, times and finishes in FRCS history. The high school boys and girls demonstrated this in the League Championship Meet at Franklin Park. The girls won their first trophy for our school finishing just a few points behind Boston Collegiate in second place. Isabel Koran again won the first place medal in the high school meet. Madison Cameron and Tiffany Lam had outstanding finishes as well going 1st, 3rd and 4th in the Championship Meet!
For the middle school meet at Winnikenni Park in Haverhill MA, the boys and girls teams also performed well. FRCS had two amazing runners, Nick Janineh and Abby Bayog each finish 3rd getting a medal for the boys and girls MS Championship Meet. The girls as a team finished so strong that they too earned a second place trophy!

Our varsity soccer programs have continually met the challenges of our competitors within Division I of the MCSAO. Remarkable achievements from both teams over the past few years and 2016 was no different.
The girls soccer team had another tremendous season. Playing against some amazing competition within Division I, the girls finished the regular season as the #2 seed and earned a bye in the first round of the league playoffs. The girls demonstrated their abilities against Excel Academy in the quarterfinals at Wheaton College, winning impressively 6-0. The girls then faced Pioneer Academy in the semi-finals at Medford HS. In a hard fought battle the girls came out on top 1-0. This win earned the FRCS girls soccer team their fourth straight trip to the League Championship game! Unfortunately the girls fell short to defending champions Salem Academy, but played to the very end and never gave up. Coaches Katie Marchesi and Justin Haffermehl did a wonderful job with them and are extremely proud of the girls!
Seniors included Leena Aldrick and All League member and Captain of our Falcons Caroline Rudd. Breana Germaine was also named to the All League squad.
The boys soccer team faced tough competition throughout the season in Division I and found themselves fighting for playoff position all season. The boys kept improving and played their very best soccer at the end of the season. The boys came up with one amazing victory after another to end the season and it was just enough to keep them at the #2 seed going into the playoffs. That earned the boys a bye week, finishing behind Prospect Hill Academy. In an outstanding game that just didn’t seem to want to end, the boys defeated a relentless opponent in Excel Academy at Wheaton College. The game was scoreless after regulation, even though the boys were on the doorsteps of a goal the entire second half. In overtime, a beautiful cross from Matt Goebel to the forehead of Gavin O’Malley into the back of the net for the win! The boys moved on to the Semi-finals at Medford HS to face an extremely challenging team in South Shore Academy. The boys came out on top in another 1-0 win! It was on to the League Championship for the fourth straight year! No soccer team in the MCSAO has made it to the league championship that many consecutive years. FRCS Co-Ed soccer had made to the championship game three consecutive years in 2006-2008. The boys faced an extremely talented undefeated team in Prospect Hill Academy and just fell short. The boys defended their championship trophy bravely and left it all out on the field and coaches Jeffrey Teixeira and David DiPaolo are so proud of the character and resiliency of the boys all season!
All League accomplishments were given to Senior Tyrese Dominique, Junior John Goebel and Senior Nate Viveiros was honorable mention.

The tournament was held at Pioneer Academy against up and coming new rival South Shore. For the first time ever, the league hosted an All-Star game that consisted of ALL League members from Division I facing Division II. It was an exciting new experience for the girls that participated and Coach of the Year, H Hardie, led the Division I All-Stars to victory.
