Posted 1/19/12 – Alverno’s soccer team won their game against Sacred Heart of Jesus on January 13th.  Having lost their first league game to Bishop Conaty, it was critical to be victorious in this game. In the next two games, they celebrated with a 6-0 victory over Holy Family and a 7-0 victory over San Gabriel Mission. “The soccer team is doing really well this season and they are in great form,” said Head Coach Ken Berry. “With Alverno getting all of its starting players back on the field, they have been doing an amazing job working as a team and winning many of their games.”  The second half of league play starts this Friday, 1-20-12, where Alverno will play against Bishop Conaty again.
