  • Gelhaus, Davignon honored by CGSCA

    For a second consecutive season, junior Ivy Gelhaus was named to the Class L All-State girls soccer team by the Connecticut Girls Soccer Coaches Association.

    Gelhaus finished with eight goals and seven assists for the Centaurs (16-5) in a “milestone” year for the Centaurs according to coach Dennis Snelling.

    That milestone was the first-ever Eastern Connecticut Conference tournament championship for the Centaurs.

    Gelhaus was a big part of that effort.

    She was named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament.

    “Ivy had another outstanding season for our program and continues to stand out among the entire ECC,” Snelling said,. “Ivy is known throughout the league. Opposing teams can’t defend her with just one player. Teams must adjust their entire system to slow her down.”

    Snelling added, because of the attention paid to Gelhaus, others were open and they all contributed. The Centaurs had 15 different players notch goals this season.

    Woodstock Academy senior Kennedy Davignon was also honored over the weekend.

    Davignon, who finished with three goals and seven assists in her final campaign in a Centaurs uniform, will play in the CGSCA Senior Bowl at 1 p.m. Friday at Middletown High School.

    Davignon becomes the first player from Woodstock Academy to be selected to play in the game since Emily Becher three years ago.

    Centaurs fall in 1st round, but celebrate successful season

     There will be forever something to remember the 2017 Woodstock Academy girls soccer team by.

    In the Alumni Fieldhouse will hang a banner which will list that team as an Eastern Connecticut Conference girls soccer tournament champion.

    For the time being, 2017 will be the only year on that banner.

    To all good things, however, must come an end.

    But in the minds of those on the team, this end came a little quicker than expected.

    Just four days after winning the ECC title, the Centaurs were giving the seven seniors on the team their final hugs as teammates after No. 26 Joel Barlow dealt the 7th-seeded Centaurs a 0-0 (7-6 penalty kicks) upset loss in a first round Class L state tournament match on Tuesday at the Bentley Athletic Complex.

    Centaurs win 1st Eastern Connecticut Conference tournament

    The third time was the charm according to Centaurs’ girls soccer coach, Dennis Snelling.

    After two unsuccessful attempts at winning the Eastern Connecticut Conference, the last in 2013, the Centaurs finally brought home the championship plaque.

    Third-seeded Woodstock Academy handed No. 1 Plainfield a 6-0 defeat in the title match played at East Lyme High School on Thursday.

    “It’s so exciting,” senior Kennedy Davignon said with her teammates jumping around her. “It being such a great win, by six goals, it’s incredible.”
