Today, Verona High School girls field hockey got its first varsity win in decades. Yes, you read that right.

VHS phased out field hockey in the 1980s. It was brought back in 2019 as a pay-to-play JV sport before going varsity this season.

Julia Komninos scored the goal that enabled Verona to defeat Mount St. Dominic Academy, 1-0, assisted by Sarah Knoetig, on a corner penalty.

Ava Perry was in goal and repeatedly shut down the MSDA offense. There were strong defensive performances by Dani Imbriano and Bella Maglifiore.

Field hockey hosts Plainfield’s Koinonia Academy on Centennial Field on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. You can follow the full schedule here.

In other sports action today, girls soccer got a 2-1 overtime win over Caldwell and volleyball got a 2-0 win over Belleville.
