The 2018 football season is off to a booming start. Although our varsity football team might have lost to Winter Park High School in week one, our team beat Boone High School for the first time in our school’s 10-year history, 42-27. We also beat Freedom High School 42-0 recently to move to 2-1 on the season. With the first three weeks of the season in the books and now entering district play, by the time of publication, our varsity team will have competed against St. Cloud High School and prepped for our homecoming game against Windemere High School. We enjoy having the Lake Nona community at our games to cheer on our Lion football team.
Our junior varsity and freshmen football teams have also been hard at work as well. Both freshmen and JV teams beat the Boone Braves. Freshmen won 7-0, and JV won 40-14 over Boone. Unfortunately, Freedom High School did not have enough players to field a freshmen or JV team, so our freshmen and JV players had a bye that week. However, during their bye week, both teams were hard at work honing their skills and preparing for their upcoming games. Recently, our JV team had a game at Cypress Creek, where they beat Cypress Creek 38-0. The freshmen team had a home game against Timber Creek. Unfortunately, our freshmen team lost 14-0. However, the team fought hard, and everyone gave everything they had. The effort that our freshmen team gave out on the field was tremendous, and we cannot wait to see how they will respond in coming weeks going into practice. By the time of publication, our freshmen and JV teams will have traveled to Winter Park and will have had a home game against East River High School.
