JV & Varsity compete in showcases starting TODAY

The JV team will look to defend the title they won two years ago at the Brewer Bear Cave Classic as they start play today against Denton Guyer at 11:10am on Field #4 at Brewer High School.  The event continues the next morning with their second match at 8:30am against Carter Riverside.

The varsity will be competing in the Allison Horn Memorial Showcase hosted by Colleyville Heritage.  This is an event that LVS has competed in since its inception in 2004.  The showcase is in honor of Allison Horn who played for Colleyville Heritage.  She was a freshman soccer star at Texas Tech when her vehicle was struck by a drunk driver in Colleyville in the spring of her freshman year when she was home for break.  Allison played for LVS head coach, Jay Fitzgerald in club for the Texas Image Soccer Club.

Fitzgerald said, "This is always an event that means a lot to me and our program.  None of us can take anything for granted.  We need to appreciate the time we have together and make the most of each and every day.  Allison was an amazing teammate, competition, and just an overall good kid."

The Lady Vikings open with Allen High School this afternoon at 4:00pm at Colleyville Heritage.  The event continues Friday with FM Marcus and Saturday with Colleyville Heritage.  The final will be played on Saturday evening.
