Last year the Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team at Division Avenue High School captured the Conference One Championship and was voted the best regular season team in Nassau County by the Nassau County Coaches Association. With many key players lost to graduation, it was unsure where the Lady Dragons would be placed for the current season. However after assessing the returning talent it was decided the Blue Dragons could compete and hold their own in the top ability group in the county.
Leading the way for Division is a very talented group of seniors. Starting in goal for Division is senior Gina Fader. Fader holds the record for most shutouts in a season.
Playing in the defense in front of Gina are Alexa Schneider, Alyssa Fiore, and Taylor LeBright. All three girls are all stars from last season. Schneider was also named conference player of the year in 2011 as well as All New York State First Team. Playing in the midfield for the Dragons are Felicia Comuniello and Joanne Orellana, while Julia Kardonsky powers the Blue Dragon offense.
