Borough President Vito Fossella Weclomes Monsignor Farrell High School Soccer Champs To Borough Hall
Borough President Fossella welcomed the Monsignor Farrell High School 2022 varsity soccer team into Borough Hall on May 2 to congratulate them on their remarkable season which culminated in winning the CHSAA championship crown.
“I get to do great things like I am going to do today -- and that is to honor you for winning the city championship for the first time in 21 years,” said Borough President Fossella, a 1983 Farrell graduate.
He said the team was carried by the spirit of Michael Bielawski, a 14-year-old Farrell soccer player who died last May.
“I know last season was very special, touching and sad in some ways,” he said. “We wouldn't be here today without your guardian angel, Michael, guiding you through.”
Head Coach Ed Hynes said the season was dedicated to Michael, whose family was also in attendance this morning.
“We will never forget Michael,” Coach Hynes said. “We wore his number 29 on our sleeves. We have to say Michael has a lot to do with it.”
Farrell President Lou Tobacco said the team showed “dedication, passion and commitment” to their sport.
“Those are habits that will take you anywhere you want to go in life,” he said. “We’re very proud of you. To the parents and to the coaches, we thank you.”
Borough President Fossella presented each of the students and the coaches with championship rings and Certificates of Appreciation.
