Cassidy McLellan – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS soccer has started both their boys and girls seasons.
Economics teacher and boys varsity soccer coach Vito Bavaro explained, “COVID-19 has affected the soccer team as we now check each player’s temperature and wipe down the balls every day. This year we have definitely been a lot more careful and precise to keep up with all the changes happening.”
Both the girls and boys teams participated in preseason games against other schools in the county.
Early childhood education teacher and girls varsity soccer coach Delaney Riggins said, “We have been practicing for two weeks now. Preseason has gone smoothly.”
Bavaro said, “I think we are prepared for the upcoming season as best we can because we haven’t missed any practices. It’s just a matter of time to where we get all the pieces in the right place.”
The boys right now are 1-1 and the girls are 1-0.
The next home game for the boys is Thursday, Nov. 12 at 5 p.m. against Braden River and the next girls’ home game is Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. against Braden River.
