Sports Cast for August 28th:
Lake Placid came storming back from a 2 nothing deficit in games to ruin the coaching debut of Taylor Pritchard for Okeechobee volleyball last night.
The finals were 25-16, and 25-22 Okeechobee, and then 22-25, 17-25 and 15-17 in favor of Lake Placid.
The Brahman junior varsity won in two exciting games.
The OHS swim team opens their season today at Sebastian River with a meet this afternoon.
Coach Stephen Neafsey has settled in to a full year as coach with more demanding practices and conditioning regiments for his swimmers.
He predicts this will pay off and he has high hopes for a larger team this year. Many of the swimmers participated in the summer time Shockwaves program to get them in shape.
Neafsey says they want to build on a successful season last year that included several regional qualifiers and breaking school records. 9 seniors graduated with 8 of them from the girls’ team. There is a strong group of freshmen swimmers this year.
Top opponents this year include Martin County.
