With the seedings for the upcoming state tournament already established, Camden Catholic's success during the regular season has rewarded them with a bye during the first round of the South Jersey Group II field hockey tournament. The start of this year's quest for the title begins tomorrow but the Irish still had a regular season divisional game to play against Paul IV. This was an opportunity for both teams to finish off the season with a good showing on the field. Camden Catholic would use this opportunity to prepare for the postseason and they did so by posting a 7-1 victory over the Lady Eagles. Kathleen Notos led the way for the Irish by scoring three goals.
Knowing that other teams are competing for the group titles has some advantages. The time off helps a team not only with rest but also gives them time to work on a few new plays that could be used in an upcoming game. For Camden Catholic, they still had their divisional game against Paul VI before their opening round in the playoffs. This time leading the way for the Irish would be Notos who scored three times in this game. Maggie Fallon would score two goals and Kelly Simpson and Bridget Rodetich rounded out the scoring in this game.
