AHA officials announced Bergen County Varsity Tennis team won the championship.

The Academy of the Holy Angels Varsity Tennis Team closed out the month of September by winning the Bergen County Championship.  

Accomplishing a clean sweep of the singles and doubles titles. 

After earning the 2021 county title in the large school's bracket, AHA was moved to the small school's bracket this year. 

Although the team could not defend its large school's title, the Angels quickly proved they would excel in any bracket. 

Wins went to Erin Ha, First Singles; Norah Park, Second Singles; Ali Darmanin, Third Singles; Mia Custodio and Eva Cho, First Doubles; and Ella Oaten and Autumn Morrissey, Second Doubles. The varsity team includes Stephanie Chan, Chaewon "Allison" Chung, and Anna Jang.

"This is a wonderful accomplishment," AHA Athletic Director Patti Gorsuch stated.

"Most amazing is that our girls ran the table, never losing a match during the two-day event, becoming individual Bergen County Champions. This was truly an exciting weekend of tennis."

AHA Varsity Tennis Coach Meaghan Williams shared, "I am delighted to steer this wonderful group of tenacious young ladies toward the Bergen County Title."

"Each player and their family has made sacrifices for the team, which I appreciate. On this anniversary of Title IX, it is my honor to represent Holy Angels at the top of Bergen County girls' tennis."

June 23rd was the 50th anniversary of the passage of Title IX. This federal law barred sex discrimination in the nation's schools and allowed young women greater access to opportunities in athletics.
