Studio042 donates over $1500.
After a winning season and a trip to the state championship, the Montclair High School girl’s soccer team saw a donation from a local business for the team’s booster club, making this past season an exciting one.
According to to the soccer team’s coach, Rob McOmish, the road to the championships started last year when the team lost to Randolph in the State Sectional Semi final in overtime. “I saw in the team that would be returning this year that this year, nothing was going to stand in their way and they proved that every day at practice and every game we played,” said McOmish. “We spoke about playing every game like a playoff game.”
However, the road still wasn’t simple for the team. At some points throughout the season, the team was sometimes down six or seven starters due to various injuries. Nonetheless, the team worked through it and every player was ready to support one another when need be.
Currently, the girl’s soccer program has won 15 Essex County Championships, four Super Essex League Titles, three Group 4 section 1 State Titles and this year, for the first time in school/program history, the overall Group 4 State Championship, according to McOmish.
Aside from the team’s obvious dedication to their playing, McOmish also comments on the support of the town. “I always explain to the girls that they are role models to the youth in our town,” said McOmish. “The majority of the town who supports our program know the girls. So for them to come and watch our games is a big boost to our girls.”
In addition to showing up to the game, the community can also show their support in other ways. Studio042 recently donated $1,589 to the soccer team’s booster club.”The soccer team was chosen by the buyers on our online team spirit store, MontclairMounties.com, through their purchases,” said Scott Kennedy, CEO of Studio042. “We are proud to make this donation to the soccer team.”
The Montclair High School Soccer team, their families and fans can purchase their Spirit wear and continue to support their team through their purchases.
“Studio042 giving the generous donation to the program was great,” said McOmish. “It shows that the hard work of the student athletes in this program are appreciated and local businesses giving back is tremendous.” Additionally, McOmish believes that spirit wear is great; the student body and parents all wearing blue and white everywhere makes the town proud. “As a former Mountie, the pride we show as a community is great and will always continue,” said McOmish.
