RANDOLPH, NJ- Having one of the largest and most successful senior classes in many years, the 2019 Randolph Girls Soccer team honored the girls playing their final few games in a Lady Rams uniform at their annual senior night game.
“These seniors have been an incredible group of young women,” said Coach Colleen Suflay. “I have adored them for many years and I have been fortunate to be a part of this group. They are a huge part of my most fun and memorable moments in the past 8 years.”
The ceremony took place pre-game, and included the traditional gifting of flowers and introduction onto the field with their parents. It was certainly an emotional night for all as the end of the road is close in view.
“I hope they reflect fondly upon their memories of friendship, faith and laughter,” said Suflay, when asked what she hopes they will think about in future years when reflecting on RHS soccer. “I also hope they remember the hard times, the commitment they needed to persevere, and the discipline they needed to do the right things when it could have been easier and more popular to not. I know they will have cherished laughs and snapshot memories that will last forever.”
For the game, Randolph fell for just the second time this season, to a strong West Morris team that finished in second place, just behind the Lady Rams who took first in their conference. A 0-0 tie went into double OT before a late goal stung Randolph. For the season, Randolph finished 12-2-4, and won the Morris County Title.
From here, Randolph begins their chase for a State Sectional title when as a No. 2 Seed they host No. 15 Seed Hackensack on Tuesday Oct. 28.
Coach Suflay was asked what advice she had for her soon to be graduated seniors. She responded, “Be at the right place, at the right time, and do the right thing. Be good to people... all people.”
