The Lehigh Raiders JV Team Heading To National Championship
Special to the Lehigh Acres Gazette Written by Samantha Snow
It saddens me to know that NBC, Wink news, Fox 4 and the News press focuses on negativity and heartbreaking stories. That multiple people including myself have reached out to them trying to show a positive story for once with no response in return.
The Lehigh Raiders JV team have played all season long and is undefeated. They played in the Peace River Conference against Immokalee and won that Championship advancing them to the Southeast Regions Playoffs which they also won.
Then they advanced to the Southeast Regions Championship taking that title too (they won). Now the team is playing at the Disney ESPN WORLDWIDE OF SPORT in the National Championship representing Florida, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia.
This is history in the making for the 1st time since the league was established in 1984 a team made it pass Peace River Conference. These boys are between the ages of 12 and 14 and worked hard this season overcoming many obstacles which one was hurricane Irma… these boys are left from their field Williams Park in Lehigh at 5:30 am on Sunday, Dec 3rd to go play their National games from Dec 3 Sunday thru Dec 9.
Please pray for these boys to have a safe trip, good luck and to enjoy the experience, a once in a lifetime experience.
