Soccer Cavs Make History With Comeback Win

The senior girls' soccer program spent many years in the proverbial sporting wilderness when it first started. It was often seen as a chance for recreational fun rather than a competitive challenge. In the past few years, the Collingwood program has changed completely. Two years ago, the Cavs won the league title.
