2017 Eastern Fall Sectional

The 2017 Eastern Fall Sectional was held on Sunday, October 1st at East Stroudsburg University. Philadelphia sent 6 head coaches, 11 assistant coaches to the sectional to assist our 9 bocce athletes and 1 unified bocce partner, 11 volleyball athletes, and 24 soccer athletes as they achieved greatness on the bocce courts, soccer fields, and volleyball courts. There was only one goal for the day: to make it to Fall Festival. Fall Festival is the fall state event held annually at Villanova University and is a highlight of the year for many athletes.

Before any competition began, our bocce and soccer athletes joined athletes from other counties for Opening Ceremonies at East Stroudsburg’s football field while volleyball athletes took part in preliminary competition. During volleyball’s Opening Ceremonies, new athletes Francis Bradshaw and Carlyn Robinson assisted Pennsylvania State Troopers in carrying the torch to officially start the competition.
