A short week this week with early dismissal on Wednesday and a Pep Rally today, but much covered in Week 2 of the Lady Vikings quest for their 5th State Championship. The Lady Vikings continued working on their Leadership Manuals to set the tone for the year, focused on their mentoring groups, made their weekly visit to Lakewood Village Retirement home, and collected materials to decorate the locker room. Team LVS "Something Special About You" Brackets comes to a clsoe with Maddie Cook's, "touched by Sandra Bullock" taking the top spot. The group will hit the field a couple days next week and in the classroom the players will discuss their IMPACT sheets that are due on Tuesday.

The upcoming season couldn't get here fast enough after a heartbreaking golden goal defeat to St. Agnes with 16 seconds to go in double OT last season; the first season in 12 years the Lady Vikings have not made it to the State Championship match. With 62 players signed up to play soccer this year, this looks to be a very exciting year. The 62 players is the 2nd most to sign-up to play soccer since the 2005 season when there were 3 teams under the LVS umbrella, a varsity team and 2 JV squads. Jay Fitzgerald returns for his 14th season as head coach for the Lady Vikings along with his brother, Todd as his assistant. New to the staff this year is Alex Mechalske, who is the most decorated Lady Vikings player in the history of the program. All players will meet in room E10, Thursday, August 16th at 2:25pm. Stay tuned for more updates, information, and excitement about TEAM LVS throughout the year by following us on our blog and on twitter @nolansoccer.
