Coming in like a Lion
Varsity Soccer and Varsity Volleyball Seasons Underway
The Varsity Boys' Soccer program and Varsity Girls' Volleyball season started their seasons strong in this first week of play.
The girls started the season with a 3-0 win over conference opponent Piedmont Classical High School. In the second set, the service game of freshman Hannah Mae Elliot and eighth grader Faith Hawkins helped the Lady Lions to turn around a 3-13 deficit to go up 15-13. Momentum and a strong home court advantage worked in their favor. In their second game at North Carolina Leadership Academy, they won the first set 25-13. The second set tested the Lady Lions resolve. They fell behind and despite a strong service game they were unable to regain the lead. They fell 1-3.
In spite of their short roster and few practices, the Lions Soccer team has looked strong and talented in their first two outings. In their first game with Piedmont Classical High School, 3 Lions scored to take a big win 6-1. Senior Brandon Caudill has two goals in early play, Junior Eukey Smallwood chipped in another, and in the last 20 minutes of regulation Sophomore Mason Gore scored 3 goals and tested the defensive tenacity of the Bobcats. In a 6-2 win over North Carolina Leadership Academy, Mason Gore (1), Mike Ioannou (1), Brandon Caudill (1) and Eukey Smallwood (3) scored goals. It was a total team effort as primary and secondary assists were made by 5 Lions including freshman Zac Callicut. Junior Goalie, Josh Crippen has fiercely protected the net this week allowing only 3 goals on 20 plus attempts.
We are looking forward to competitive, strong competition in the Central Carolina Conference this season!
