LM Closes Fall Sports Season on a High Note

LM Closes Fall Sports Season on a High Note

Varun Singh

The 2021 fall season was another successful one for Lower Moreland’s athletic programs. 


The golf team had a great turnout of new players this year, adding 7 new members to the team. Even though the team finished 2-6 this season, they had several significant achievements, including a combined score of 204 (lowest five scores combined) against William Tennent at Five Ponds, a 3-year low score for the team. In addition, golfers Noah Archibald, Ian McErlean, and Iggy Gonzales received Second Team All-League honors. The team will be returning 5 juniors next year, and only losing one senior. Consequently, this is a team on the rise with lots of potential moving forward.

Field Hockey

The JV and Varsity Field Hockey teams grew vastly this year, embracing a new offense and culture that made both teams successful. The Varsity team finished at almost 0.500 and qualified as the 5th seed in the District playoffs. A loss to Springfield in the first round of the playoffs was hard to swallow, but the team left everything they had on the field. Off the field, the team collected items for Nicole’s Place and raised over $330 to support breast cancer research.


Both teams continued their success from previous seasons, as the Girls Cross Country Team won the District Championship and the Boys Cross Country Team took second place overall. At the State Championships at Hershey, the Girls competed as a team and finished 16th in the PIAA 2A race. In addition, 4 of the members of the Boys Team competed after qualifying individually for States.

Boys Soccer

The Boys Varsity Soccer Team carried the momentum from its strong finish to the 2020-2021 season into this year, as the team won the Freedom Division, amassing a record of 12-2-2 in the league. In the first half of the season, the team defeated its long-time rivals, New Hope-Solebury and Springfield, by scores of 2-1 and 2-0, respectively. In the District playoffs, the team defeated Penncrest 2-1 in double overtime before falling to Bishop Shanahan in the second round.

Girls Soccer

After a slow start, the Girls Soccer Team came on strong during the latter stages of the season, riding a five-game win streak to capture the Freedom Division of the Suburban One League with a 10-6 record. In the first round of the District playoffs, the team traveled to Gwynedd Mercy Academy, where, despite putting up a valiant effort, the team lost by a score of 2-0. The team has high hopes for next season, with their sights set on a deep playoff run.


The football team showed remarkable improvement this year. Winning four out of the nine games on its schedule, the team finished with its second best season since 2013, including a hard-fought 14-12 victory over rival Jenkintown in the final game of the season. Lower Moreland’s football team finished fifth in the Bicentennial League, and is sure to continue its success next year and in the years to come.
