The LHS soccer program is more than a team; it’s a family. As sisters in Christ, the coaching staff emphasizes that soccer is a game to love, but it is not the sole focus every day. Coaches and team members strive for maximum effort, dedication, devotion, and glory to God both on and off the field. The team ends each practice and game with a team prayer, keeping Christ at the center of the soccer family and the game they love.
