Soccer Rosary Tourney

This past weekend proved successful for Joliet Catholic Academy athletics. Here’s a complete run down of our spring sports:

Girls Soccer

The JCA varsity girls soccer program won the Rosary Tournament Invitational this past weekend, winning all five games during Saturday’s marathon tournament. The Angels started off with 3-0 with wins over Harlem (3-2), IMSA (4-0), and Aurora Central Catholic (3-0) in pool play. In the semifinal, the Angels won 3-2 in penalty kicks over Mohomet-Seymour. JCA captured the championship with a 2-0 victory over Harlem once again in the finals. Senior Andriana Acosta led the way with seven goals on the day, followed by Kelsey Builta with three. Emma Ehrsam, Mandy Gruber, and Mariah Rodriguez added one goal a piece.


With Alyssa Callans tossing a four-hit shutout and driving in three runs to join Reilly Jo Swanson, Paige Callans and Jen Krizka with two hits apiece at the top of the lineup, JCA used a 12-hit attack to help it grab a quick lead in its 6-0 nonconference victory over Romeoville on Friday.
