bassHawks Football Coach Charles Bass said his team’s perseverance is the key to this season. Despite not having a home athletic field, “we are outworking the other teams,” Coach Bass said. “We are still trying to figure out who we are in terms of toughness, but we are playing with more grit.”  Coach Bass runs his practices to clean up and work on execution, but he said that students already have the heart and determination they need to win.
KeyshonKeyshon Morgan (12th grade), is a running back on our varsity football team.  When asked why this year’s team is off to such a strong start, Keyshon said that the team’s communication has been a big part of them coming together.  “Our player-to-player relationship has really grown,” Keyshon said. “This is more than football, and the closer we are off the field, the closer we are on the field. And that's why we have this success”.


kingBack in the LFLA Gym, Sidney King, the Lady Hawks varsity volleyball coach, attributes her team’s success this year to the high expectations they set before the season started.  “They play with tenacity. We had a very strong preseason, and the players are playing well together,” said Coach King. 


camoreah lCa’Moreah Lindsey, 11th grade, is an outside hitter on the varsity team and was named player of the week by St. Louis Post Dispatch in early September.  Aniyah Poye (11th grade), Cara Manuell (9th grade), and Kyndal Seals (11th grade), credit their winning volleyball season to their team’s growing chemistry on and off the court.  They all agreed that it’s about how much work you put in and push each other to get better. Kyndal said: “We have a lot of new players this year, but the chemistry was easy to build. Most of the girls are already athletes that play other sports, so the footwork and endurance is there, we just had to teach them how to hit.” 


Aniyah went on to say there is camaraderie that exists with all the girls: “We look forward to practice and games, and we have fun before, during, and after as a team.”  Cara, one of the youngest players on the varsity team, said that even though she’s a freshman, the older girls accepted her instantly and really built up that close bond.



Hawks Football’s next game is Friday Sept. 29th at 7pm at Lutheran St. Charles and the Lady Hawks Volleyball next home game is scheduled for Thursday Sept 28th, JV at 4:30 and Varsity at 5:30 vs Vashon. Come out and cheer on our hardworking student athletes!
