Senior Night Was A Success
The Varsity Football team moved to a record of 8-0 on Friday after the Lakers defeated Bishop McLaughlin 54-6 during the annual Laker Homecoming! Senior Captain Kai Patterson threw for 2 TDs connecting with fellow Captain Khadry Jackson and Junior Seth Daniels through the air. On the ground, Senior Najji Allen scored 2 TDs, while Senior Joel Noel, Senior Adiel Aguiar, and Junior Ross Fournet also added rushing TDs. Defensively, the Lakers held Bishop McLaughlin scoreless till late in the 4th quarter, allowing only 129 yards of total offense. Freshman Zane Fullmer, Freshman Stone Farnsworth, and Junior Aidan Sakata added much-needed depth to a very talented defensive unit. Senior Justin Kirtland was a perfect 7-7 on PATS and was 1-1 after drilling a 30-yard field goal. This week, the Lakers have a 1st round Playoff BYE. On November 2nd, the team will host the winner of Orangewood Christian vs. Masters Academy in the 2nd round of the SSAC State Playoffs. Stay tuned for more details!
Finally, congratulations to the 2018 All-District Selections!
