LMK Student Athletes Build Skills, Team Spirit

Modified Sports: The modified program saw remarkable success with over 150 students enthusiastically participating in Baseball, Softball, Lacrosse, and Track and Field. The program fostered an engaging and vibrant learning environment. Players and coaches highlighted the program's core values of rigor, communication, development and accountability throughout the season, and students improved at all levels of play.  The success of the modified program underscores its positive impact on our athletics program at the high school. The future is promising for our young Huskies!

Intramural Sports:  This spring’s pilot  intramural program included Lacrosse, Field Hockey, and Flag Football. The program, designed to promote inclusivity and active participation among 6th grade students, was a great success. Students embraced the opportunity to compete, and develop a sense of camaraderie and healthy competition, while learning new skills. The program’s success is attributed to a dedicated coaching staff,  as well as the enthusiasm and engagement of our students.
