LHS Soccer Team Visits UNO

March 25, 2015

On March 20, 2015, the Lexington High School Boy’s Soccer Team visited the University of Nebraska at Omaha.  The boy’s were taking part in a college visit as part of the “Gathering of Champions” academic program. This program is new to LHS this year.  Each sporting team is now assigned an “Academic Coach”.  This coach monitors athletes’ grades and provides study halls and tutoring for athletes who are struggling with coursework. While at UNO, the team toured the campus and also visited with the head of the Academic Enhancement Program in the Hamilton Academic Excellence room for student athletes.  The boys were informed of academic expectations for student athletes in the university setting.  They were impressed with the beautiful facilities set aside for student athletes and all of the assistance that would be available to them should they pursue their dream of a college education at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
