Fall Sports Season Recap

Krishiv Kapadia

With the start of winter sports, let’s take a look at the Fall season which was a pretty normal season even though Covid-19 guidelines were still in place.


To start off we have the Bishop Feehan Football team. This team, led by Coach Pinabell along with captains Aidan Crump, Matt Saunders, Danny Haggarty and Robert Pombriant, had a very successful season and brought the winning culture back to shamrock football. The team finished with an 8-3 record and a share of the CCL title with their thanksgiving win over rival Bishop Stang. This season was highlighted by the game against North Attleboro which brought a lot of excitement as well as confidence to this squad. We look to see the winning culture continue in the 2022 season. This team also had a great team of cheerleaders led by captains Sophia Bond and Gabriella Valeri as well as Coach Fowler. This team did a lot of great things this year and did a great job supporting the football team as well as competing in the MSAA state competition which is a huge deal. We hope to see the cheerleading team continue their hard work next fall.


Next we have the girls Field Hockey team which had a dominant season finishing with 14 wins on the season as well as winning the CCL cup and their first state playoff game. Led by Coach D’Ambrosia and captains Cailin Lawlor, Grace Klingaman and Cailiegh Shaw, they were able to have another successful season in the CCL. The team picked up big wins over teams like Bishop Fenwick, Lincoln Sudbury and Bishop Stang. Sophomore Ava Meehan was able to win CCL MVP due to her outstanding performances this season. The team looks to continue their success next year even though they are losing nine seniors.


The Bishop Feehan golf team had an extremely good season with their new coach, Coach MacLeod, who has taken over for Coach Anderson, who coached for the past several years. Led by captains Jimmy Kannally, Jack Hudson and Andrew Cook, the team was able to finish with an outstanding record of 11-3. The team had many other incredible players on their team including CCL all stars Matt Murray and Chad Correia. The team has been very consistent throughout the past couple of years and they look to keep that going despite the departure of seven seniors.


The Bishop Feehan Girls volleyball was nothing short of spectacular this season. With Coach Bruschi leading the team and the help of captains Hope Stratton, Olivia Olson, and Maeve Parrish, the girls were able to open a lot of eyes and finished with double digit wins once again. This team clinched the CCL title and picked up crucial wins along the way against St Marys, Bishop Stang and Cardinal Spellman. The team was also able to win a state playoff game against Attleboro this year which was a great morale boost for the team. We hope to see this continued success in 2022.


The Girls Soccer team is no stranger to success as in the past few years they have constantly been in the conversation for the best team in the state. The team, led by Coach Silva, had a near perfect season finishing with nineteen wins, two loses, and one tie. Captains Annie Pearl and Grace Robison had outstanding seasons and finished their Feehan careers in a great way. Even with the departure of twelve seniors, this team still has the talent to continue paving the way for Girls soccer and we hope to see them succeed in 2022. The Boys soccer team similar to the Girls team had a great year finishing with ten wins, 4 losses and five ties. This team showed a lot of grit this season, grinding out many tough matches this year such as Bridgewater-Raynham and Bishop Stang. Led by Coach Pariseau, the team had a lot of depth which will allow them to continue their further success even with many seniors graduating on this team. Their primary goals next year are the CCL cup and the State championship.


Last but certainly not least, we have the Boys and Girls cross country team. This team had some memorable moments throughout the year. Led by Coach L’Homme, the team had some great performances by runners such as Pat Healey running his best time of 15:54.8 at the Wrentham Development Center. We also had Casey Gorhan, Jack Bernier, Noah Gomes D’Sa and Alex Almeida run sub 17 minute times at this course. The boys’ team capped off their season by placing third at the Divisional meet, qualifying them for the State championship. On the girl’s side, we had Anna Boyd running an amazing time of 18:31.6  which was the third fastest time in Feehan history for a girl. We also had Val Capalbo and Liz Borah run sub 20 minute times as well as Lauren Harkins and Amy Parkinson running sub 21 minute times. The incredible girls’ team showed off their hard work by winning the Divisional meet and placing eighth at the State championship. This team has a lot of young talent and they hope to continue breaking records.
