Girls varsity volleyball

LaPorte Slicers 10-1 (DAC 5-1) defeated the Merrillville Pirates tonight in straight sets. The Slicers struggled with finding their own groove Tuesday, but manage to pull off a win, 3-0.

Girls varsity soccer

On Plymouth Girls High School Team’s Senior Night, the La Porte High School Girls Soccer Team lost 8-0 Tuesday. With 1/3 of their starters out with injuries, the Slicers tried to overcome that adversity on Tuesday night. The Slicers suffered further injuries to key players in the first half, adding misfortune to a already struggling squad.

In the second half the Slicers reorganized and fought back with good play from replacement reserve players, Junior Deanna Cervantes, Sophomore Aliya Fox, Freshman Sofie Joseph and Chloe Szumanski. The Slicers face a tough DAC opponent this Saturday, at Lake Central High School.

Boys varsity soccer

The Slicers dropped a close, hard fought match to a very good Northridge team Tuesday night. The first goal of the game came from Aaron Feikas to put the Slicers up 1-0, his second goal of the season. Northridge would sneak 3 past the Slicers in the first half and that is how the game would end. The Slicers drop to 1-7 on the season.
