LVS19 Underway; Everything/Anything

The 2019 Nolan Catholic Women's Soccer program is in full swing as pre-season rolls on.  With just over 60 days before the first match, the Lady Vikings prepare each and every day like the opener is tomorrow.  

"We take great pride in our program and the overall experience it provides for young ladies.  This is a program with high expectations making growth and progress a priority.  Problem solving is a priority stressing the education of life through soccer," said head coach, Jay Fitzgerald. 

The program has over 700 wins since 1983, 4 State Championships, 33 Final Four Appearances & Regional Championships and 15 State Runner-Ups and consistently gains local, regional, and national respect. The LVS Experience is like no other. The expectations of the student-athletes at Nolan Catholic are extremely high, not because the standards are high, but because the individuals have a true competitive spirit.

History, tradition, success, consistency on and off the field along with selfless community service has put the Nolan Catholic Women's Soccer Team on the national map. Strength of schedule is second to none, hosting the nations #1 showcase, the National Elite Prep Showcase in its 17th year. With their annual trip to California to play the best of the west, the Lady Vikings are always up for a challenge. A healthy mix of their own district private school teams and the top UIL powerhouse public schools are always on tap each season.

Fitzgerald mentioned, "We help identify player key qualities through an individual development plan for each player to help steer our LVSers down the appropriate development pathway.  We are about progress and growth. We want to get better every day and in the end our players become better people on and off the field."
