St. Joseph’s girls soccer defeats Christ Church for Class AA title

IRMO – An aggressive early-season schedule yielded an 0-3-1 record for the St. Joseph’s girls soccer team. The defending Class AA champs persevered, however, and the payoff was a second trophy.

The Knights defeated Christ Church Episcopal School 2-0 Saturday in the state title match at Irmo High school. Senior Bailey Manfredi and freshman Caroline Getz scored for St. Joseph’s.

“We challenged ourselves early, playing 5A schools, and we just kept getting better and better,” St. Joseph’s coach Rick Morris said after the game. “It definitely paid off.”

In a matchup of Greenville County private school rivals, the Knights (13-4-1) denied the Cavaliers (17-2) their first title since 2012. The Cavaliers fell in the state semifinals in 2021.
