Jenny Livengood was the first person to come to Athletic Director Bob Yttredahl’s mind when the Varsity Soccer team clinched a playoff spot for the first time in program history. Coach Livengood was once a 3rd grade teacher and JV volleyball coach at Lakehill. Her true passion was always found in soccer.
“She kept trying to convince me to start up a soccer program for Lakehill,” said Coach Yttredahl. “She has a true passion for the sport and wanted to share that with our kids.”
When the decision was made that it was time to start a school soccer program, it was offered to middle school athletes for the first two years. Once that was established, a varsity team followed. “I realized pretty quickly how popular soccer was going to be. It just goes back to one of our core values of providing opportunities for our students to excel. I am so proud of the athletes, Coach Bracken, and Coach Diego. They have worked so hard over the past several years to get to this point.”
