LYSC is pleased to announce that the 2019-20 LYSC Annual Scholarship winners are Liz Sykes and Alejandro Lynch. They, along with their entire grade, are wonderful young adults, great teammates and have been an absolute pleasure to watch grow through our LYSC program. Best of luck in your future endeavors.
We also want to congratulate the following seniors for an exceptional year and a great soccer career in Lynnfield. Congrats to Tori Morelli, Abby Lucich, Molly Ozanian, Emma Ricciardi, Amberly McCarter, Anna Marie Ferrante, Fadi Dhahib, Matt Juliano, Tommy Buston and Tommy Hauser.
Liz was a two year captain and was called up to varsity in the middle of her freshman year. Once Liz started playing on defense she did not come out for the remainder of her varsity career. Liz was absolutely solid in the backfield and would organize the team in front of her. She was an incredible hard worker. Liz was always willing to help someone on or off the field. She is one of the most kind and polite people and when she stepped onto the field she maintained that attitude even while shutting down her opponents. Liz’s work ethic and concern for teammates was beyond reproach. Liz helped with younger players and was a referee for youth soccer.
Alejandro was a team captain, 3 year varsity player, 2 year starter as defender. Alejandro is a very tough hard nosed player who has been willing to play wherever we need him. He is an unsung integral player on a couple of teams that have exceeded expectations. Alejandro was great with the younger players, helped out at youth soccer practices and was also a referee in our intown program.
Congratulations to the entire 2020 LHS Senior Class.
There has been significant progress at Jordan Park over the winter and spring. The parking area has been fully expanded, the field expansion is complete with new sod and irrigation in place and growing and construction of the playground area is nearing completion. There is even a kick wall ready for players of all ages to practice on. We look forward to being back together as a LYSC family in the near future, possibly even at the new Jordan Park. Once again, special thanks to the Town of Lynnfield, the Board of Selectmen and DPW for their efforts and work in bringing this project to fruition.
