The Lady Knights played at 2:00 PM in their first ever championship game, showing tremendous fight all the way to the finish to close the game with a score of 2-6. Congratulations to Coach Rick Morris and the entire team for a fantastic season!
The boys soccer played at 4:00 PM, also facing down a tough opponent in the Academic Magnet team. Tied at the half, the boys finished with a final score of 2-3. After claiming five consecutive state championships in Class A, we’re so proud of our boys for taking it all the way in our first year in 2A!
