Freehold Gymnastics is having a great season; their record stands 7-1 with three meets left to go. Only having lost to Middletown South, the team has defeated Manalapan, Neptune, Howell, Marlboro, Holmdel, Colts Neck, and RBC. Last Friday’s win over Holmdel High School gave Coach Pusz her 100th win! We wish the girls luck as they go on to face Freehold Township on Tuesday.

Girls’ Volleyball is going steady with an 8-7 record. Most recently they won against Holmdel, Middletown North, and Long Branch. They lost in the first round of the Shore Conference Tournament against Jackson Liberty, but are looking forward to a packed four-game week. They will travel to Manasquan, Middletown South, and Lacey – and they face Central Regional at home Tuesday.

Boys’ Soccer picked up a winning streak late in their season, grabbing victories over Barnegat and Matawan. With four games left to go, the boys will face Marlboro on Saturday. 

Girls’ Soccer picked up an impressive win against Long Branch, with their five goals to the Green Wave’s one. They have two games left in the season, both at home against Lacey and Raritan. 

Girls’ Tennis nears the end of the season with matches against Neptune, Manchester Township, SJV, and Toms River North still to go. They beat Henry Hudson both times they faced the Admirals, and got a win over Matawan last Monday. 

Field Hockey is still looking for their first win of the season with five games left to go. Coming up this week they will face SJV, Henry Hudson, and Lakewood.

Football also still searches for a win; they have their final game of the 2022-23 season next Saturday against Howell. Show your support by marching in the pre-game Homecoming parade with clubs and teams and follow the game’s Pink Out theme.
