Brenna Rademaker – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS girls varsity soccer team head coach Guy Vergilio has been coaching at the school since 1999-2000.  With just three more victories he will reach his 300th win.

Senior Mackenzie Fischer has been on the varsity team since her freshman year.

“Coach Guy has taught me a lot like being tough and just striving to be a better player on and off the field,” she said.

Fischer recently tore her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) playing in a game.  However, she said, “They are like my second family, with or without my injury.”

Vergilio is loved by his team and will be celebrating win 300 along with the girls he has coached to be not only great players, but great people as well.

“Despite all the yelling he does, he really is a great coach, he has fun yet is very serious.  He has a great love for the game as well as for us,” said Fischer.
