Soccer Team Retires Jersey

As a tribute to Abbey Mallon ’14, the Villa Maria soccer team retired her No. 6 jersey in a prayer service before Tuesday’s game against Merion Mercy. Players from both teams gathered with the Mallon family and members of the school community for a brief remembrance of Abbey and readings from Scripture. The girls presented the Mallons with Abbey’s jersey and flowers from both schools. Villa Maria players wore T-shirts with the words “Abbey Strong” and hair ribbons in Abbey’s favorite color, yellow. Villa Maria went on to defeat Merion Mercy, 5-1.
