A reprise in honor of girls’ soccer season at RFH …

Yes, soccer season has kicked in. And there are and have been girls teams at RFH since 1984. But, that was not always the case …

When Rumson-Fair Haven Retrospect shared a photo of the boys’ team from back in the late 1970s, RFH grads challenged all to remember who the first girl was to play on the boys’ team.

We found her and a photo of the team that year, which was 1975-76. ┬áRemember? It was Chris Bowden, RFH Class of 1976. They were playing, of course, in 1975, the fall before graduation time that came in June of ’76.

So, the Retro Pic of the Day honors that first girl to kick in some girl power on the RFH Boys Soccer team a few decades ago.

Who was the second girl on a team? And do you remember who the team captains were on the first all-girls RFH soccer team in 1984?
