Boys’ Ultimate plays a tough first home game

Today the LHS boys’ ultimate frisbee team played their first home game at Goddard Middle School against D’evelyn High School. The season has just begun so the boys are just getting into the full swing of the season. The team practices three times a week at Goddard working on everything from stamina to tricky stacks in the end zone.

Within the first week of practices the boys lost one of their key players, junior Keaton Schreiber. Schreiber broke his collar bone once again and will be out for a significant amount of the season. This loss initially shocked the boys but they quickly began to bounce back. The team has been reworking their offense and defense and utilizing first year players to develop the team into something it has never been before.

Today the boys played a tough but fun game. While the boys suffered a loss, they played a great game and grew. At the soft cap the score was 5-9 with D’evelyn in the lead. The teams then played to 11 and finished the game with a final score of 6-11.

“Even though we lost we had a blast and made some major improvements as a team. The offense worked the disc very fluidly and a lot of our newest players contributed to out successes” said senior captain Andy Bredar.

Continue to watch the boys team grow throughout the season. All home games are at Goddard and typically on Thursdays!
