Lake Mary High School has always had a reputation for their athletic achievements and this year our boys’ AND girls’ soccer teams have brought home numerous awards and broken new records. With the boys’ current 17-2-3 record, they have won districts back-to-back making that the first time in 15 years. Girls’ varsity also defeated a streak, this time they made it all the way to Regional Semi-Finals which is the furthest they have made it through districts in the past 5 years.

The girls set a 15-5-1 record going through the season, which put them in a good spot going into districts. The Lady Rams started off districts with a blowout, shutting Lake Howell out and kicking them out of districts 4-0. In district semi-finals against Hagerty, January 13th, Sydney Henderson made a memorable game winning goal in overtime which secured their spot in the district finals. Although they didn’t win districts the Lady Rams continued to fight on and had another blowout in the first round of Regionals, against Dr. Phillips. The girls traveled to Oviedo yet again for Regional Semi-Finals, where they were defeated.

“This group of Rams gave their heart and soul to each other, the soccer program and their school. They should be very proud of what they accomplished. The underclassman need to follow the example of our senior leadership so the tradition continues,” says Coach Bill Eissele.

Although the varsity Lady Rams season came to an end a lot earlier than they had wished, they couldn’t be prouder of how they came together this year and of how far they got. The junior-varsity Lady Rams also rose to the occasion going undefeated, 28-0, back-to-back. While the boys junior-varsity went 10-2-2.

Our varsity boys’ soccer have gone above and beyond this year to go farther this season. By winning districts last year they set the bar high for themselves, and they have done that and more. The Rams breezed through districts defeating Oviedo, Seminole and Lake Brantley. With the help of Ramnation these boys beat Olympia 2-0, which landed them their spot in FHSAA 5A Regional Finals. Rams will travel to Mandarin in Jacksonville on Friday, February 5th.

“I’m just proud of all that we have accomplished and looking forward to our big game against Mandarin. I’m excited to see what happens, if we win and make it to states we will make history, but until then I’m proud of where we have come from. Just know we aren’t done yet,” says senior, Jack Decker.

The least we can say is that Ramnation could not be more proud of how both soccer teams finished this season, win or lose, and we all wish nothing but luck to the varisty boys’ team and cannot wait to see what they continue to accomplish. GO RAMS!
