COACH'S COMMENTS

“... We were the youngest team in our ‘Major Division’ this season, but, they’re a remarkable group of talented boys. So, they wasn’t letting that stop them from setting big goals.

"...They wanted to be season & tournament champions. We told them it wasn’t going to be easy, they’d have to work hard for it. They done just that. Finishing 11-4 and as season and tournament champions!

"...It was a pleasure and honor to coach and watch them GROW as individuals and together as a TEAM. They (everyone) played the game hard, with class and sportsmanship. Plus they had a ton of FUN while doing so! They couldn’t have made us any prouder.

"...They’re a bunch of humble, kind hearted kids, who put God first in everything they do. We hate to see the season end, but are grateful for the memories made. We return all but 2 players next season.”

When you think about soccer, think LCHS girls...

When you think about LC soccer, think about the Lawrence County High School Girls Team. Since their formation in 2009, they have built a legacy for future teams to uphold and have accomplished big things in their nine year existence. They have won seven District Championships, four Regional Championships, had four State Sweet Sixteen appearances and have been to the State Elite Eight three times.

The LCHS Girls Soccer Team have always been a close-knit group of players and friends. Each year they have team bonding activities in the summer to help the new players get acquainted with the returning players. The Team tie-dyes shirts, has a neighborhood scavenger hunt, has sleepovers, go out to eat together as well as make and deliver salads for their salad sale fundraisers.

Last Friday, June 15th was tie-dye night, but before they got started they added a short trip North on US 23 to present Plant Manager Steve Greene and the rest of the staff at Riverside Generating with a "Thank You" ball for their generous donation. The plant made a one time $1,000 donation this year to help send these talented young ladies to Morehead State University summer soccer team camp AND put in place an annual $1,500 donation to help send them to camp in the future, purchase equipment or use for other team necessities each year.

Riverside Generating will have a banner placed on the LC Soccer field so our community and visiting teams know that they are proud LC supporters. Thanks again to Riverside Generating for being "all in LC!"

Sophomore leadoff hitter Halli Caudill had a remarkable year as she tied the state record for most stolen bases in a year without getting caught as she was 84-84 on the season. Caudill had the record broken against Pikeville in the Region Championship game, but the ball got away from the Lady Panthers catcher and was not recorded as a stolen base. Caudill also led the Lady Dawgs in hitting with a .509 batting average and hits with 59. Caudill made the 15TH REGION ALL TOURNAMENT and 58TH ALL DISTRICT
