The following is an edited press release from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School:

RFH earned points for the Girls Cross Country Sectional Championship, Field Hockey Group Championship, and the Football Sectional Championship.
It was last weekend, on Nov. 15, when the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School Field Hockey team won the school’s first NJSIAA Group II title.
The girls won the title over Bordentown High School in a 3-2 victory that came on the heels of a historic Shore Conference Title win against Shore Regional High School on earlier in the month.
A small Rumson-Fair Haven Retrospect breaking story ran on the day of the NJSIAA Group Title win.
Here are more details about the game, provided by RFH:
Madison Maguire, Peyton McCauley, and Lilly Croddick scored goals for top-seeded RFH, and goalie Anna Babiak had four saves.
“I couldn’t be prouder of the efforts of these girls over the entire season, and certainly in their Group II Final game,” Head Coach Julie Vaccarelli said. “This is another first for the program — we have never before made it to the group final, and to win in our very first appearance is just spectacular.”
The RFH field hockey roster consists of: seniors Abigael Donohue, Catie Ebner (Captain), Molly Lake, Maggi McCann, and Peyton McCauley (Captain); juniors Anna Babiak, Kara Dixon, Bridget Fitzgerald, Maggie Jennings, Madison Maguire, Kiera McKay, Gabrielle Ramirez, Masie Sapnar, and Kate Sustick; sophomore Ali DeVito; and freshmen Lilly Croddick, Emma D’Amelio, Kaitlyn MacGillis, Megan MacGillis, Makenna Maguire, and Molly Nowell.
They did it!
The girls on the RFH Field Hockey team won the NJSIAA tournament on Saturday with a final score of 3-2.
The victory comes after the team won the first field hockey Shore Conference title on Nov. 2 — an RFH Field Hockey first.
“The top-seeded Bulldogs bested the second-seeded Blue Devils with a score of 2-0″ in that game, a release from RFH said. The RFH girls were the first team of the 2014 season to hold Shore Regional — winner of the past 15 Shore Conference Title bouts — scoreless.”
