Girls Soccer Team Crowned State Champions!

For the first time in school history, the Benet Academy Girls Soccer Team won the IHSA Class 2A State Soccer Championship with a 2-1 overtime victory against the Wauconda Bulldogs at North Central College.

The Redwings’ defeated of the Lady Knights of Triad High School from Troy, IL by a score of 3-1 in the semifinal match on Friday and seemed poised and ready to play on Saturday afternoon.

After an early goal by Wauconda, our Lady Redwings just couldn’t seem to score despite some valiant efforts. Then, with a minute and 45 seconds left in the game, they tied the game, sending the match into overtime. After a 30-minute delay due to thunder, the girls came out strong and brought home the championship trophy!

Congratulations to:

​​​​​​​Head Coach Gerard Oconer
Assistant Coaches: Bob Gros, Kim Sayers, Martin Uscila, Henry Wind
Team Managers: Jason Byrne, Chandler Hart
