The Port Jefferson School District’s girls varsity soccer team not only knows how to play an excellent game, its members understand that they have the power to make a difference in the lives of others.
The team closed out the season on April 10 with the Kicks for Cancer game. Although the tradition was a little different than in years past, the girls still raised awareness and funds that will benefit Long Island individuals and families affected by cancer. The team raised $400 for Kicks for Cancer, a local initiative that combines athletics and fundraising for cancer research, and has raised more than $1 million since its inception. The girls also closed out the season with a 3-0 victory over their opponent, Mattituck/Southold/Greenport. The district congratulates the student-athletes, coach Taylor Forstell and assistant coach Logan Hoffmann on their efforts and a great season.
