The Port Jefferson girls’ varsity soccer team returned home from Cortland with its second consecutive state championship Nov. 13, and it was honored with a parade down Main Street and a ceremony at Village Hall hosted by Mayor Margot Garant. The team was led by Head Coach Michele Aponte and nine seniors, who turned a 31-3-1 two year record into two state titles. Members of the community came out to congratulate the team for all of their impressive accomplishments. Garant and the rest of the village’s board of trustees has set aside Nov. 13 every year as “Lady Royals Soccer Champions Day.”
