Local Officials Achieve First.
Fletcher, Creekside and St. Johns Country Day weren’t the only Northeast Florida teams making history at the FHSAA girls soccer championships.
A crew from the Jacksonville-based North Florida Soccer Officials Association achieved a notable first by taking charge of the Class 4A girls soccer final.
Alexandra Billeter, a former University of North Florida forward who has also officiated in the National Women’s Soccer League, served as the referee, assisted by Joan Hyland, Dana Jones and Kaitlin Hartford.
Although officiating records aren’t complete for all FHSAA finals, association officials said it’s believed to be the first time on record that an all-female crew — referee, assistants and fourth official — handled a state soccer championship.
Bishop Moore won the 4A final, 4-2 against Delray Beach American Heritage
