The Windermere Prep Varsity Weight Lifting team defeated Trinity Prep last Wednesday 39-34. All of the athletes had great lifts and outstanding performers were Freshman Alex Choi, Senior JB Blount, and Junior Ross Fournet. Alex Choi set a new PR on the bench press and his max has gone up 90 lbs. in the last month. Once again, JB Blount had the highest total of all athletes at the meet by bench pressing 325 lbs. and clean and jerking 245 lbs. Ross Fournet had another great performance and took first place in his weight class. The Lakers are now 2-0 and host Lake Mary Prep this coming Wednesday. Go Lakers!
Laker Softball got off to a big start last week with a huge win over Celebration High School! The team fought through the rain and wind to come away with a 19-0 victory. Mia Williams hit her first solo home run, and Madison and Meredith Workman also had multiple hits to bring in a lot of runs! Lexi King breezed through batters, and Julie Reeth came in the end for relief. It was a great team win! The Lakers have a game Tuesday at home against The First Academy, and then they are on the road Thursday at Lake Highland Prep. Come out and cheer these girls on, Laker Nation!
The Varsity team lost a close game to Crystal River High School on Saturday afternoon in their regular season finale. This week, the Lakers begin postseason play in the District Playoffs where they face Trinity Prep in the first round. Good luck, Lakers!
The JV Boys Basketball team hosted the Central Florida JV Tournament on Saturday with Oak Ridge, Osceola, TFA, Master’s Academy, West Orange, Olympia, and Lake Highland Prep all participating. The Lakers beat Olympia and West Orange to advance to the Championship game vs. Osceola. It was a close, fast-paced game but Osceola ultimately earned a few extra points for the win. The JV team took home the Runner-Up trophy. Congrats on a great season, Lakers!
The Varsity Boys Basketball team had the ultimate experience of playing in an NBA arena on Tuesday. The Lakers faced one of the top teams in Florida, Melbourne High School and their 6’11" center, at the Amway Center on the Orlando Magic home floor. While the Lakers were able to stick with them for much of the first half, Melbourne proved to be too strong in the second. Overall, the team had a great experience, and they were able to return that night to watch the Magic vs. Thunder game. On Friday, both the JV and Varsity teams played CFCA. The Varsity team fell short against the 2018 Final Four squad, while the JV team won their only game of the week in an overtime thriller!
