Leesville Road to have varsity lacrosse programs

Leesville Road, a school that won state championships in boys golf and girls soccer a few months ago, has added lacrosse as a varsity spring sport.

Jack Rogers, Leesville Road’s athletic director, has seen the recent impact lacrosse has had on other schools in the area, especially in the Cap Eight 4-A conference. Rogers said he and Principal Scott Lyons made the decision a few weeks ago to offer the sport next year.

“I think it’s exciting for not only our students, but for everybody,” said Rogers, who expects the lacrosse programs to add points to the schools’ Wachovia Cup standings next year. “It’s exciting for us as an athletic department to add a new sport. I think we’ll be competitive.”

Reviewing transfer rules for student athletes

The Wake County school system may loosen up the guidelines allowing student athletes to transfer to other high schools.

During today's school board policy committee meeting, committee chairwoman Debra Goldman raised concerns about the section in the board's transfer policy that says transfer students may not be allowed to participate in high school athletics. If you get a transfer, you could potentially be barred from playing athletics for 365 days.

That section of policy is meant to prevent high schools from competing with each other for athletes. There have been scandals at schools in other districts over the issue.

In Conf-2, Apex reigns supreme after a 11-7 win over Green Hope. The Cougars looked like they were going to lose star player Cawley Bromley, who suffered an injury during the game, but she should be back in action soon — as early as next week. Green Hope remains second in the conference AND the state despite the loss. Panther Creek is the closest with a 3-2 conference record. Middle Creek and Cary don't have a final score reported, and are therefore tied in fourth.


In Conf-3, our only local team Athens Drive is 0-2 and in fourth behind Broughton, Cardinal Gibbons and Wakefield.
