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.

Yes, soccer season has kicked in.

A couple of days ago, we paid ode to the season with a couple of Retro Pic(s) of the (George) Day from RFH and the boys’ team in the late 1970s.

Well, following through with the soccer theme and the series of photos from the ’70s, here’s the team — the boys of RFH soccer in the year 1977-78.

Oh, and lest we forget those cool RFH science teacher coaches, Mr. Russell and Mr. Parker.

There are a lot of familiar faces here, many of whom are still in the area. Recognize anyone?  Favorite player? Favorite coach/teacher?

Thanks, again, to George Day for this gem of a photo!

Yes, soccer season has kicked in.

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 (since there was no girls team then).

We found her and a photo of the team that year, which was 1975-76.  Remember? It was Chris Bowden, RFH Class of 1976. They were playing, of course, in 1975.

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.

Do you remember in which year RFH formed its first girls’ soccer team? We think it was the 1980s. How about 1983? Remember who the captains of that team were?
