In the Colonial Valley Conference, Princeton and Robbinsville won division titles, the Tigers ran a flawless conference schedule and the Ravens advanced to the sectional semifinals.

Notre Dame had a great season with a good mix of veterans and youth, Hopewell Valley was a young team that showed the future is bright, Lawrence came through with a very successful season, and Allentown rebounded from a rough start to finish strong.

West Windsor-Plainsboro-South was very competitive, WW-P North showed promise for the future, Hightstown battled every game, Hamilton West, Steinert and Nottingham continued to grow their programs and it was great to see Ewing back on the field.

All of the CVC’s success has come from some very talented players, and here’s a look at The Trentonian All-CVC 2022 team:

Player of the Year — Jordyn Pepper, Robbinsville: Pepper was the heart and soul of the Ravens. A very talented player, she led the county in scoring with 35 goals and 12 assists. A junior, she committed to Lehigh and was key in the Ravens’ state tournament run.

Offensive Player of the Year — Erin Liggio, Princeton: What a great season it has been for Ligio, it started with the first game and didn’t end. The junior scored 30 goals and was always in the right place at the right time.

Midfielder of the Year – Delaney Keegan, Princeton: One of the most talented players in the region, Keegan led the Tigers to the division title with 14 goals. Her presence on the field and her knowledge of the game made her invaluable.

Co-Defensive Player of the Year — Duffy Luong, Robbinsville: Luongo’s boundless energy and strong desire to succeed have made him one of the best defenders in the conference. Always close to the ball and a player who liked to play hard defensively.

Co-Defensive Player of the Year — Gianna DiGioacchino, Princeton: Steady, reliable and efficient are the best words to describe DiJoaquin’s play throughout her Princeton career. A very capable defender and the main reason for the Tigers’ success.

Goalie of the Year — Abby Duncan, Lawrence: Duncan has had success this season, and it’s her play in the cage that has allowed the offense to be much more aggressive. The bigger the game, the more intensity Duncan brought to the position.

Coach of the Year – Jenna Marie Colicchia, Robbinsville: It hasn’t been the easiest year for Kolichka on and off the field, but she’s never lost her focus on teaching the game, coaching and mentoring young women. She led the Ravens to a division title and an appearance in the section semifinals. This was a Colicchia-led group that got better with every game.

Haley Ladue, Allentown: Ladue scored four goals in the first game of the season and the sophomore made it clear she will be a force to be reckoned with in the district with 19 goals.

Hannah Christopher, Princeton: It was a terrific season for Christopher with 20 goals and 5 assists as she led the Tigers to the division title. She was key to the Tigers’ success.

Caroline Rotheville, Lawrence: Rotteveel has come into her own this season and has proven to be a great clutch player. She scored 25 goals and added 13 in a stellar year for the Cardinals.

Sierra Chow, Hopewell Valley: This was a young Hopewell Valley team and Chow was one of those bright young stars. She scored seven goals and had 12 assists.

Amanda Dressel, Notre Dame: It seemed like every time Dressel was on the field, good things happened for the Irish. A very talented player, she scored 11 goals and added six assists.

Eli Marrone, Notre Dame: Marrone has done a lot for the Irish — every aspect of the game. She brought a great work ethic to the field and had 10 goals and 10 assists.

Julia Dorfman, WW-P South: It was a solid year at South, and Dorfman was the catalyst for many of the Pirates’ accomplishments. She scored 23 goals and added eight assists.

Reva Doshi, Princeton: It seemed like when Princeton needed a play in the midfield, Doshi was there to pass. A very hard worker and team player, she scored eight goals and provided eight assists.

Emma Quattrocchi, Lawrence: Quattrocchi was the heart and soul of the Cardinals with her excellent work ethic and her leadership skills. A motivator for young players, she contributed eight goals and nine assists.

Kalyn Rosica, Notre Dame: A great team player, Rosick brought talent and a great work ethic to the field. She was the spark for the entire team as she scored six goals and led the team in assists with 11.

Tanvi Pabati, WW-P North: When the Knights needed a big play, they relied on Pabbati to come through, and she usually did. She led the team in scoring with nine goals and eight assists.

Mia Ramirez, Princeton: One of the Tigers’ young stars, Ramirez is a very skilled player and brings a great work ethic. Always coming up in key situations, Ramirez scored nine goals and added eight assists.

Hannah Tyler, Robbinsville: Tyler, one of the leaders of the Ravens, patrolled the field and always tried to give her best for the team. She scored six goals and added six assists.

Raina Jablonski, Hopewell Valley: Jablonski, another of the Bulldogs’ young squads, has been a talented scorer this season. A player with an eye for the cage, she scored 12 goals and 10 assists.

Riley Simon, WW-P South: One of the Ravens’ strengths was their defense, and Simon was the anchor in the backfield. A hard worker, she was a player who just kept improving.

Kayla McCree, Allentown: One of the reasons the Redbirds made such a turnaround was their defensive play, and McCree’s leadership was instrumental in their success.

Katya Alhovski, Allentown: Another component of success in Allentown. A staunch defender and player who did his job calmly and accurately.

Maddie Schwartz, Robbinsville: The Ravens have learned to rely on Schwartz’s play in goal, as her ability and agility have allowed her to become one of the top goalies in the area.
