SPARTA, NJ – The Sparta High School girls soccer team honored their seniors before their game against Morris Hills.  It was a night game on the new turf field and the girls won, 4-1.

“I could not have asked for a better group of seniors in my first year as head coach,” Daniel Trappe said. “This group has really set the tone for our younger players. Every day this group proves that a strong work ethic and a positive attitude can really push a team towards success.
