With a record of 12 wins, 0 loses & ties, 47 goals for & 9 against the Spectrum Junior Girls Soccer team have made history winning the school’s first Junior girls Island Championship in dominant fashion. The girls had an outstanding season culminating in a City & Island Championship double for the first time in our school’s history. The girls played Royal Bay in the Island Final on Friday May 12th at SMU ruthlessly winning 5-1, with goals from Kat (1) & Victoria Cronkhite (2), Charli Packford (1), & Brooklyn Robinson (1).
This is the first time a Spectrum girls team have hoisted the Jr soccer Island Championship. Colquitz had won it previously as a grade 9 & 10 school but since switching to the 9-12 high school model, Spectrum has never won the title. What makes the accomplishment even more impressive is that with the establishment of school sport academies, sport specific schools have often dominated the school sport silverware. With the Reynolds Soccer Academy not far away from Spectrum, many of the catchment’s soccer kids may go to Reynolds. Spectrum, who were a perennial soccer powerhouse before the establishment of school sport academies has never won a city or island championship in the sport of soccer since.
This is not the only Spectrum success from junior teams this year. The strong grade 9 & 10 years cohorts have hoisted the following titles:
-Jr Girls City Championship – Volleyball
-Jr Boys Island Championship – Volleyball
-Island Championship (Jr Boys individual wrestlers x2)
and now a City & Island Soccer Championship for the grade 9 & 10 junior girls. It has literally been a banner year for the Spectrum junior teams which bodes very well for the future.
