With many teams performing extremely well this fall, Haddonfield athletics are a force to be reckoned with, as always. Here is a look at all of the fall sports teams and a little bit about each group:

Football:

The dawgs are 3-0 so far, and the season has just begun. In each game, the Haddonfield defense has allowed no more than 14 points. On the offensive side, Haddonfield has scored 35 or more in every game. Don’t miss the next game, Friday, October 7th at 7pm on the turf!

Field Hockey:

After going 22-2-1 last year, the dawgs have returned hungry for another successful season. So far, they are 7-1, with their only loss to rival West Deptford. With 38 goals scored overall, and just 7 allowed so far this season, the field hockey team is off to a great start. Their next game with be against Haddon Township on 9/28.

Girls Soccer:

The girls soccer team is fairly young this year, with many underclassmen playing big roles. Their season is well underway, and they have yet to face an opponent that was any match for their balanced attack and solid defense. The dawgs are 8-0 so far, and show no signs of slowing down. Catch their next big match, on 9/26, when they’ll face the Haddon Township Hawks at 4pm.

Boys Soccer:

The boys soccer team is also off to a successful start this year. They are 5-2-1, which is extremely impressive since they lost 9 starters to graduation after last season. Their only losses were to Cherry Hill East and Rancocas Valley, both of which are out of conference. Don’t miss their next match also against Haddon Township on 9/26.

Girls Tennis:

The girls tennis team is 13-5 so far this year. They are off to a great start and are likely to continue their momentum far into the fall season. They are ranked 14th on NJ.com’s top twenty girls tennis teams, which is extremely impressive. After winning states in 2015, they hope to defend that title this year.

Color Guard and Marching Band:

Every year, the color guard and marching band pick a theme to carry out their season. This year, it’s “Generation Z”, as they celebrate our current generation. Several songs such as “Pompeii” and “I’d Rather Be” will be heard throughout their performances. They have upcoming competitions in Pitman, Millville, and West Deptford so make sure to get out there and support! They will also be competing in the Chapter and Atlantic Coast Championships.

Cheerleading:

With an impressive youth program that generates many high school cheerleaders, the cheer team is always well stocked. They are seen at every football game in uniform, and never fail to get the crowd

excited. With a variety of cheers, chants, band dances, and awesome stunts, this group of girls is extremely talented. They are also often at other sports games, and are always a great support. Cheerleading is also a winter sport, so don’t forget to look out for the team at the basketball games as well!

Boys XC:

The boys cross country team is also off to a great start this fall. This weekend, they placed third in the Bowdoin invitational, which was very impressive, as they only finished behind Cherokee and CBA. Even better, last weekend, they won the Briarwood invitational, in the group 2 division championship! Make sure to go out and support them in their upcoming meets!

Girls XC:

The girls cross country team is starting off successful, which is no surprise. They are 5-0 in dual meets so far and plan to continue their streak. Don’t forget to get out and support them as well in their upcoming dual meets.

Crew:

So far, the crew team has not had any races this fall. However, their first regatta will take place this Saturday on the Christina River, and they have a couple later in the season at the Schuylkill River to look forward to. More to come on the crew team in the spring, when they enter their main and most intense season.
