LWA Soccer 10_3

Last Saturday Lawrence Woodmere Academy held their annual homecoming event and soccer game. The soccer team lost 0-1 at the hands of Staten Island Academy. Although the team lost, John Harrison, an LWA Junior, said, “he felt as if the soccer team played good, it’s just a matter of we win some we lose some.” Although LWA lost the game, the great food, cotton candy and events kept spirits high. Not only did LWA students and families enjoy Homecoming, visitor Eden Bouchi from Holy Trinity High School said, “The “3 on 3 basketball game and the food were pretty good, maybe I’ll even come again next year.” Parents, students, family, and friends filled the field of LWA to watch the soccer game, play 3 on 3 basketball, dance to good music (presented by LWA Senior and DJ, Christian Aristizabal) and participate in events like the donut eating contest. LWA homecoming 2019 was successful for all involved.
