Week of September 27

9/29/22:  The team traveled to Charlotte Latin. The entire game was back and forth with a lot of play in the mid field. TJ Pacitto played tough on defense alongside Drew Lehmar, who does well distributing the ball out of the back. Jake Taylor did well on the wing connecting several wall passes and Liam Cuis stayed strong in the center of the field. The boys did not win but kept the game close. The coaches said they have seen a lot of improvement this season.

  Even though they lost the game, the soccer team demonstrated leadership on the field and worked hard the entire game. They had 10 shots, which was more than Charlotte Christian. They also scored the first goal of the match. This loss was a tough one. Shreyas Polishetty had 2 goals. Luke Kosicki had an assist. Colton Waid and Calen Smith played well on the wings.

9/27/22:  Many athletes were able to get their personal record time at Tuesday's meet. The team has one more meet before the championships on October 18.

The first 3 runners for the boys were Garrett Lasarsky, Jonah White and Alex Franzese for the boys.  The first 3 runners for the girls were Emma Nelson, Mikayla Freeland and Campbelle Cyrus.

The girls placed 3rd and the boys placed 5th.  About 17 runners were able to knock off time from their seasonal best and even some from their personal best from last year.  Most notably were Zaraah Nayab, Noah Pate, Kohen Hamlin, and Pranav Kanagala (who knocked off close to 2 minutes).  Good job, Knights!
