Student athletes at Lake Highlands High School are enjoying a successful athletic season despite unforeseen circumstances.
The football team is 7-0 with a district championship in sight after wins against Jesuit and J.J. Pearce. This comes after the school’s first 5-0 start in over twenty years and the first home win against Dallas Jesuit in school history.
“There’s a lot of first things happening tonight and that’s what this team is about. We’re trying to put something together that’s pretty special,” head coach Lonnie Jordan said to the Dallas Morning News.
The football team is currently ranked 12th in class 6A according to Area Rankings compiled by the Dallas Morning News.
The Wildcat Volleyball team secured a district championship after a win against J.J. Pearce. The team was undefeated in district play and Head Coach Abbey Perez claimed her 110th career win in the game.
LHHS is ranked 17th in Texas Girls Coaches Association Poll and will face Arlington Bowie in the first round of playoffs on Saturday at 2 p.m.
Also on the hardwood, the basketball team is off to a 2-0 start with wins against Naaman Forest and The Colony.
Delays to the start of football and volleyball seasons have resulted in all three teams playing regular season games at the same time. The Wildcats have taken advantage of this unprecedented situation to the delight of spectators.
