Girls and boys soccer start season off with a bang

By Paul Darmstadter 

Both the girls and boys varsity soccer teams have started their seasons off undefeated and full of confidence.  Each team has played only three games; two games against Strasburg and Clarke County were postponed due to snow on the field, against Warren County, Madison County, and William Monroe.  Both teams are either leading or tied for the lead in the Bull Run District standings.

The boys team has shut out all their opponents and are leading the Bull Run District in scoring with 20 goals in three games.  Their leading goal scorer is Raheem Lawal, with six goals.  The team defeated Warren County 4-0, and mercy ruled Madison County and William Monroe 8-0 at home.

“Before training for the marathon [my parents] had never really been into running and I thought to myself, ‘wow, that must have took them lots of determination and courage to do that.’ That's when I joined my middle school track team and took up running.”

The hard work his parents put into the 26.2 miles of the Vermont marathon is what Buck credits his interest of running to.
