Three Red Bank Catholic Players Selected to All-Shore Soccer Squad

By Les Pierce

Morgan Cupo

Three RBC players, Morgan Cupo, Gianna Romeo and Jyvanna Harris, have been selected to the APP.com All-Shore Girls Soccer Team.

Cupo was a four-year starter and a three-time All-Shore First Team selection. She led the Casey offense with 16 goals and nine assists on the season, with her best effort a four-goal/two-assist performance against Monmouth Regional.  

Her career stats of 69 goals and 31 assists (169 points) places her as the fifth all-time most prolific RBC scorer behind Kristen Kurzynowski (251 points – 1988), Kelly Wines (195 points – 1997), Caryn Blood (192 points – 2000) and Danielle Colaprico (175 points – 2011).

The senior forward was also named All-State by the State Coaches Association and East All-Region by the National Coaches Association (United Coaches Association).

“Morgan‘s impact on our program over the past four years was tremendous – two Division, two State Sectionals and a Shore Conference Championship;” stated Head Coach Frank Lawrence.  “Her relentless competitiveness is what separates her on the field; off the field she always makes me laugh. I’ll miss both aspects of her personality.”

Romeo demonstrated a talent for setting up scoring opportunities throughout the 2021 campaign. Her four-assist, one-goal performance against Donovan Catholic on Nov. 9 was emblematic of that ability.  

Gianna Romeo

The junior midfielder put up 12 goals and nine assists on the season. Her career stats stand at 25 goals and 20 assists.

Harris is just a sophomore but has already gained a reputation as a solid defender. She has been the catalyst of a Casey defense that has notched six shutouts in their 14 victories. She also contributed five assists over the 2021 season.  

In 2021, Red Bank Catholic captured the NJSIAA South Jersey Non-Public A South championship via a 2-1 victory over Saint John Vianney.
