LHS Lady Leopard Golf
The Leopard Women's Golf Team competed in the Regional Preview Tournament, March 28th, at Rockwall Golf and Athletic Club. The team finished 2nd overall out of 12 teams competing. We did well, scoring a team total 370. This was great for us to get to see the course one extra time before the district tournament. I believe our girls are ready to put their best rounds of the year together for the district tournament, April 10th and 11th.
The ladies were lead by Sophomore Allie Bianchi. Allie finished 1st overall, winning the tournament with her season best score of 77 this year. She is playing very well. Other scores: Kendall Sailer, 96. Mallory Sailer, 97. Sophie Starnes, 98. Katie Dragoo, 100. Jazmine Veatch, 105. Callie Mayfield, 106.
The Leopards have moved to 20-3 overall, and are tied for First Place in District 15-5A at 6-1. In one of their last outings, Alyssa DiFiore led the team with 7 RBI's, including a Grand Slam to help the Leopards defeated Royse City 15-3.
Post season accolades continue to mount up for the 2016 Leopard Volleyball team. Seniors Taylor Carty and Paige Becker have been recognized for not only their success on the court but more importantly their accomplishments in the classroom by Prep Volleyball

The Lovejoy Baseball team currently sits in 4th place with a District record of 3-3. Unfortunately, we lost 2 hard fought games vs Forney last week. We played very well and made a couple of mistakes each game that cost us the game. Mason Marsh and Jacob Terwilliger were outstanding on the mound holding a very good Forney offense down for most of the games.
We will look to bounce back against Wylie 4-2 in district this week. We play Tuesday at home at 7:30 and head over to Wylie East Friday night at 7:30.
Please come out to the games and support the teams!
