Before that, however, there is his senior season at Weymouth, where Rezende-Verge will be counted on more with a big class graduating this year.
“There’s going to be more pressure on me to be more of the goalie I can be and not make as many mistakes,” he said. “I need to be more of a leader too, because next year I’m going to be the older guy.”

Three among younger crowd spark Cardinal Spellman girls
Underclassmen are not typically the go-to players on a high school team, but don’t tell that to Cardinal Spellman.
Sophomores Julia Schneider and Hannah Boucher , along with freshman Adrianna Forcucci , played a major role in the Cardinals’ undefeated regular season.
Schneider recorded 12 shutouts and surrendered only eight goals all season en route to being named a first team EMass all-star. Boucher tallied 11 goals and six assists from the forward position, while Forcucci added 10 goals and six assists.
“They all played a huge role for us,” said Spellman coach Mike Perry . “Julia did an outstanding job in goal, Hannah has a great attitude with an outstanding work ethic, and Adrianna got a number of goals on determination.”
