Lakewood Middle School 2019 Fall Sports Review
Fall 2019 proved to be an exceptional athletic season for students at Lakewood Middle School. Volleyball and Cross Country provided many students opportunities to better themselves as student athletes. Our coaching staff has impressed us all once again, by showing how much they care about making a positive impact on each of their players/runners. Thank you all for your time and commitment!
The 7th and 8th grade girls volleyball season started out with a bang and never really slowed down. Both teams continued to improve as they cruised past nearly all of their opponents at both levels. In an effort to get more girls involved in an already booming volleyball program, LMS decided to make two teams at the 8th grade level allowing for four more players on the roster! This created a dynamic practice and match environment by increasing the competition. The 8th grade A team suffered an early season loss to Stockbridge, but had the last laugh as they crushed the Panthers at the league tournament to clinch the GLAC Championship. The 7th grade squad was absolutely dominant and finished with a perfect season! Great work ladies!
The Cross Country team was a very diverse group this year. Being a co-ed team to begin with, students from grades 5-8 made up the roster of twenty five! XC is a unique team when considering they compete with six teams in the GLAC conference and sixteen teams in the MMMSL league. The runners began practice in the scorching days of late August with their first competition in St. Johns, followed by a home contest in early September. Our home course is very scenic and can prove to be a difficult one. The LMS runners pushed their bodies to the limits of physical endurance at practice in an effort to beat personal records on the several 3200 meter courses throughout Mid Michigan. At the end of the season, a GLAC league meet was held at Leslie where three of our runners finished in the top fifteen! A big shout out to Starr Densmore for her 11th place finish for the girls! Garrett Feighan and Weston Potter both brought home top finishes for the boys. Potter finished 11th and Feighan 6th! Great job team!
