BOALSBURG — Saint Joseph’s Catholic Academy girls’ and boys’ soccer teams will play the 2019 season on their home field on Belle Avenue in Boalsburg, according to a press release.

Justin Rodkey, Saint Joseph’s athletic director, looks forward to bringing soccer home.

“It’s always exciting when you have the opportunity to play on campus and in front of your home crowd,” Rodkey said. “The new field will help bring the community together through sports and various activities. I invite you all to come out and support the Pack.”

Saint Joseph’s returns a number of athletes from both the girls’ and boys’ teams. With a strong core of athletes, the Saint Joseph’s girls’ soccer program looks promising.

Senior Brynn Hershbine looks forward to adding more games to the season.

“Having the soccer field in our backyard allows us to add more home games to our schedule,” she said. “We are all so excited to be able to play on our school grounds this year.”

While more games are certainty a bonus, junior Clare Marsh looks forward to growing the program.

“We are very excited to finally play our home games at our school, as it can only grow the soccer community that we are building here at Saint Joseph’s,” she said.

Sophomore Natalie Page sees the home field as a means to help strengthen the Pack.

“Having our own home field means so much to the team because on this field we will learn and grow as players but more importantly, as a team,” she said. “It also helps us connect with the rest of our Saint Joseph’s Catholic Academy community because it makes it easier for people to support at our home games.”

Saint Joseph's fielded a boys' soccer team for the first time in 2018.
