State Soccer Champs!

April 29, 2017
By Mariner Sports

Mariners are 2-A state champs in soccer!

    The girls soccer team went undefeated through both the season and the state playoffs, earning its first ever SCACS state soccer title.

The Mariners first swept through their conference with a balance of strong defense and an agressive scoring strategy. That same combination helped Lake Pointe overpower a tough Emmanuel team from Hartsville 5-1 in the semi-finals, and to clinch the championship 5-2 over a talented Hampton Park team from Greenville.

The state title required many components, of course. 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 the latest installment in a longer story. 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!

Prize performance at XC state

October 17, 2015
By Mariner Sports

The 2015 SCACS league state cross country meet enjoyed picture-perfect fall weather. The Mariner teams and individual runners took advantage of the crisp, sunny, and dry conditions to perform well against a field of strong runners from all over South Carolina.

Many Mariners posted their personal-best times in the race, which meandered through the wooded trails of the SIM ministry campus near Carowinds in Fort Mill. When the dust settled after the two races, green and silver were the colors of success. The Lady Mariners captured first place, while their male teammates earned second place in the men's race. Adding the smiles, the individual first place awards were both earned by LPA student-athletes. 

Coach Beth Donnelly gave credit to the hard work of the individual students and their hard work in training and exercises the past few months. She pointed out that the teams enjoyed really meaningful practices in the days leading up the state meet.  Fruit follows growth, cultivating, and pruning!
