During a shortened fall sports season this year, East Rochester Union Free sports were able to secure three Section V championships! These three sports were the only varsity offerings this fall due to COVID-19. The Girls Varsity Tennis Team, Girls Varsity Field Hockey Team and Boys Varsity Soccer Team all brought home trophies in their classifications. 

 

It had been eight years since the ER Girls Tennis Team had made it to the sectional finals. Friday, November 13, the team was there again, taking on Mynderse for the Class CI Sectional Championship. The team won the championship game 4-1, after going 13-1 for the season. Tennis players Olivia Raschiatore and Zoe Zutes won their singles matches. For doubles, Syd Freiberger teamed with Sarah Stone to win at first doubles while Paulina Lexer and Elizabeth Henry won at second doubles. The Boys Soccer Team helped the Girls Tennis Team celebrate after winning their sectional championship.

The following Tuesday, East Rochester's Field Hockey team won the 2020 Class B Field Hockey Sectional Championship, beating Pittsford Sutherland to win the title. The last time ER Field Hockey were sectional champions was 2009. The game was tied 2-2 at the end of regulation time and was sent into overtime, where ER teammate Riley Wing came out on top after scoring the game-winning goal. The team ended the season with a 10-3-0 record. Click here to watch the parade that took place in celebration of the Girls Field Hockey team when leaving Pittsford after their championship game. 

 

To round out the triple crown, the ER Boys Varsity Soccer Team needed a win. The team, who was ranked number one in New York State at this time last year but fell to Keshequa during the state qualifier, used that loss to further motivate them this year and lead them to a triumph over Holley with a score of 4-0 in the Section V Class C Championship game and bring home the Section V block for the second year in a row.

 

The championship contests were streamed, for those who couldn’t attend in person because of COVID-19, and can be watched in their entirety on YouTube.

East Rochester continued it’s tradition of excellence with these three titles in the only three varsity sports offered this fall due to COVID-19, and the district continues to remain The Home of Champions! #WeAreER
