Five Red Bank Catholic Players Selected to All Division Soccer Squad

By Les Pierce

Sophomore forward Morgan Cupo (18) was named A Central Player of the Year.

Five RBC soccer players were selected to the 13-member girls’ Shore Conference A Central All-Division squad. Rostered on the team were forward Morgan Cupo (25 goals, eight assists), midfielder Reagan Pauwels (15 goals, 16 assists), midfielder Paige Theobald (two goals, 11 assists), defender Aubrey Silverman (three goals, five assists) and defender Madison Holloway (one goal, seven assists).

The players were picked by Shore Conference soccer coaches. The committee also named sophomore Morgan Cupo the A Central Player of the Year, and RBC Head Coach Frank Lawrence was named Coach of the Year.

Arguably Cupo’s greatest moment of the season came in the Shore Conference Tournament (SCT). In the 28th minute of the SCT final, Cupo scored the initial goal of the contest on a spectacular headshot off a ball that bounced high in the air off the crossbar.

“Morgan is one of the most competitive players I’ve ever coached,” Lawrence said. “She is determined to score a goal every time she is on the field.”

RBC went on to claim the championship by a 2-0 score over Toms River North. It was the seventh SCT championship in program history, more than any other school in the conference.

Cupo was further named to the NJ.com Second Team All-State. She was also selected to the NJ.com First Team Non-Public along with teammates Aubrey Silverman and Cornell University bound senior Reagan Pauwels. Casey goalie Cleo Grignard was rostered on NJ.com’s Second Team Non-Public. Lawrence was also recognized by NJ.com as the Shore Conference Coach of the Year.

“I’m really happy that so many of our players were recognized for their contributions to our team’s success this year,” Lawrence said.
