SIMA FAB 50: Back-to-back champs

Article Written by Sheldon Shealer
Published: November 19, 2019

Portland Jesuit (Ore.) girls saw a pair of record-setting careers come to an end, but not before claiming a second straight SIMA FAB 50 national title.

After former No. 1 Eastern (N.J.) fell in the New Jersey Group 4 semifinals, the focus shifted to Portland Jesuit, which was made aware that two wins last week would land the program a second title in a row and a third overall. As usual, Callen Harrington and Mary Votava answered.

The Washington-bound Harrington scored two goals in a 3-0 state final win to give her the state records for goals in a season (55) and career (133). Harrington passed all-time Oregon great Tiffeny Milbrett in both categories. Notre Dame signee Votava was in goal for the shutout victory. During her four-year career, she was part of 63 shutouts and allowed only one goal the past two years combined.

Add in this was Portland Jesuit's third straight undefeated season -- a run now of 58 matches -- and it's easy to see why this team, which started the year at No. 2, again finishes No. 1.

As state tournaments for both boys and girls soccer wrapped up this past week, it allowed for a lot of ranking readjustments. Mid-Atlantic boys powers North Penn (Pa.), Walt Whitman and Salesianum (Del.) moved up in the rankings. On the girls side, the Top 10 is now complete.

This is the final week for high school fall soccer.
