Patra Acquaviva


My favorite sports event/memory/moment is … my second year at Freehold Township High School and beating a rival team in the Shore Conference semifinals.  It was the first time in program history, and it was a compilation of the hard work, both skills and team camaraderie, that our girls put together since day 1.  They went 23-2 that season and deserved every win they received.  It was more about the team and the season than it was about that one win.
