Girls soccer, 1980

  • Girls soccer, 1980
  • "The first mention of girls' soccer at Wakefield High School was in the 1955 yearbook which noted that the girls played intramural games from September to November. The first girls soccer team was formed in 1979 after increasing interest in the sport, with Mr. Mogavero as their supervisor. Coaching duties were taken over by Noel Higgins in 1980. By the 1982 season, the team had posted a 9-3-1 record, the second best in the Middlesex League, and had qualified for the state tournament." -- Text from calendar.
