Coach Brad Urie enters his 4th year as the Lake Region Girls Varsity Soccer Coach, and he and his team plan to hit the ground running. Long gone are the days of double-digit defeats and small numbers in the win column. This is a new era for girlsâ€™ soccer at Lake Region.
Coming off a year where he saw his Lady Rangers finish with the best overall season in school history, he and his team know the expectations are high, but Urie also says â€śitâ€™ll take hard work, practice, and determination, to compete with the teams in the Mountain League.â€ť
With the start of the 2011 soccer campaign here, Varsity coach Tom Evans, is set to begin his 30th year at the helm of the Lake Region Program. This yearâ€™s Ranger team will look a lot different from the year before, 8 Seniors lost to graduation and 1 player returning home, to Spain, as a result of the Foreign Exchange Program. But, even with all of the changes, Coach Evans, will have 10 returning players, including his 5 seniors: Caleb Royer, Matt Morin, Tony Stuart, Kyle Perry, and Corey Whitten.
