The work has been put in since last May, throughout the summer, and since school started in August. "Sitting in the meetings today and looking out at the talent we have in the room makes me very excited, " said Lady Vikings head coach, Jay Fitzgerald.

The month of October especially has been impressive with players stepping up, buying in, and making an impact.  Fitzgerald continued, "It is going to be a grind but I believe in this group.  They will take advantage of our tremendous resources for sure."

The teams will start at school tomorrow for Media Day and then the varsity team will head downtown after school.

The JV and Varsity teams get underway with scrimmages at home next Wednesday night at 6:00pm and 7:30pm respectively.  District season starts in November.

LVS18 Try-Outs Continue; Winter Soccer Officially Begins

Try-Outs for LVS18 continue this week Monday through Wednesday with Roster Selection announced on Thursday followed by Media Day on Friday.  The season officially beings Monday as practices will now be extended each day with more information given on Thursday during team meetings.

"We are so excited for the season to finally be here as the process has been a long one starting in the summer," said head coach, Jay Fitzgerald.

October has seen a sense of urgency from the team, all fighting for a spot in the program.  Roster selections are never set in stone as players can move up and down throughout the process and also need based.

Fitzgerald continued, "Ever since October got here, we have seen a different mentality and the days keep getting better.  The players have high standards mentally and physically."

Lane Anderson will be taking over the JV team coming from Arizona where she coached both men and women the last couple years.  More from our staff throughout the week.

NTX Giving Day; September 14th

This is a huge day for our Nolan Catholic Community.  NTX Giving Day is the single best day to give as your dollar goes further.  The more you give, other people match.  If we all work together as a program our donations will go further.

Starting at 6:00am tomorrow morning and going through midnight, go on our website and give.  Show how strong we feel about our Nolan Catholic Community.  It provides funds for our classrooms, campus, and tuition assistance.  Also, a BONUS this year, if we meet our GOAL of $125,000 we will enjoy brand new COMMONS FURNITURE.  All our students, student-athletes, faculty and staff will get to enjoy this "cafe" style comfortable furniture in December.

Without this day it would be hard to accomplish our mission.  This day is so huge for us.

Please GET UP & GIVE.  #BleedBlue
