Lady Dragons Capture Conference Title
Last week the Division Avenue Girls' Varsity Soccer Team went to Great Neck South knowing that a victory would clinch the Conference V title, but a loss would put them in a tie for second place. With only two games remaining in the season, this was extreme pressure for the girls. Not since 1996 had a Division Avenue Girls' Soccer Team come in first place! The stage was set and the Lady Dragons rose to the occasion with a 3-1 victory. Courtney Schmaeling had a goal in each half and freshman Michelle Cordts added another as insurance. This game was played under horrible field conditions after two days of torrential rain, yet the Levittown girls played one of their best games of the season.
