2017 State champs!
The girls soccer team went undefeated through both the season and the state playoffs, earning its first ever SCACS state soccer title. From the ingredients of a strong team and hard work, to unselfish play and encouraging coaching, everything came together through the season. The accomplishment is amazing, considering that two years ago, in LPA’s inaugural soccer season, the girls' team fought valiantly just to earn a win. Last year, the team was highly competitive, barely missing the playoffs when the tie-breaker didn’t go the team’s way. This season, the Mariners left no doubt or discussion, achieving an undefeated season all the way to top match. Well done. Go Green!
As with many high school soccer programs, LPA's top players have extensive club soccer experience. The amazing story, however, is that less-experienced players are nicely fitting into the program and proving their mettle as well.

League and eligibility
Student athletes in grades seven and above can participate in varsity soccer. While older high school players normally get more playing time, younger players -- especially those with experience and skill -- are developed in and around the older leaders.
Lake Pointe competes in the 2-A division of the South Carolina Association of Christian Schools (SCACS) league. That season is a spring schedule.
LPA does not have a soccer pitch on its campus. Practices are held at New Centre Park in Clover. Home games are held at Martha Rivers Park in Gastonia, NC. The Mariners are grateful to these organizations for their generosity and hospitality.
