Since the last publication, our varsity team has played our last three games against East River, Liberty and Wekiva. We traveled to East River on Oct. 19 and took care of business by winning the game 20-14. We won the Battle of the Beachline for the second straight year and kept the Surfboard at Lake Nona. The next week, on Thursday, Oct. 25, Liberty traveled to Nemours Stadium where, unfortunately, they beat us 62-28. It was a hard-fought loss; none of the players gave up but fought until the end. In the last game of the season, Nov. 2, No. 2 ranked Wekiva traveled to Nemours Stadium to take on our Lion varsity team. Our boys battled hard against one of the top 8A teams in the state of Florida. Unfortunately, we fell to Wekiva 35-0. We were proud of how well our team performed against Wekiva and how we stayed in the game even though we lost. Unfortunately, we did not make the playoffs this year by a narrow margin. Overall, our varsity football team had a great season. We finished 6-4 overall this season, and we are looking to improve for next year. We would like to thank the Lake Nona community for their continued support throughout the season and hope to see everyone out there again next year.
Also, since the last publication, our freshman and JV teams had their last games of the season. Our JV and freshman teams finished out their seasons with two wins against East River (Oct. 16) and University (Oct. 18) high schools. Both the freshman and JV teams had a great season with the freshmen finishing 5-2 and JV 5-1 overall. We are proud of how well the boys played during the season and became better as a team throughout the season. We also want to thank the Lake Nona community for coming out and supporting our freshman and JV teams this season. We hope to see everyone out there again next season.
