On Monday, April 23, the LCSS girl’s soccer team faced off against the girls from Duncan Christian School at the Cowichan Sportsplex near Quamichan Middle School on Chesterfield St. in Duncan.
With only 9 girls playing that day, it was hard for the LCSS team to make any headway, and unfortunately they lost with a score of 6-3.
Kathy Biro, the LCSS coach, says that due to a lack of team members, the girls will not be playing in any more games this season. “We have decided to keep the practices going Tuesdays and Thursdays and treat them like a drop-in soccer clinic. It will be open to all ages and gender. I am hoping that I will be able to teach and instill the basic soccer skills to give them a jump on next year.”
Principal Peter Jory says it’s unfortunate that the girls will not be able to play this year, but he also acknowledges that many of them have work obligations, or are needing to focus on their studies. He also says that the Lady of the Lake activities consume much of the student’s time.
