Welcome to another year of Lake Nona Athletics. We are truly proud of what we have accomplished over the first ten years of the school’s existence. We have laid a solid foundation to support the success we’ve experienced across the board, both on the playing field and in the classroom. We are all very proud of the Student-Athletes and Coaches here at Lake Nona who sacrifice a tremendous amount of time to represent the school and the community.
“Year 11” brings forth a new set of goals, expectations, and some new faces. We will continue to work hard to meet these goals and expectations as we have done in the past. Each year the hard work pays dividends as we continue to have District, Regional, and Conference Champions, Players of the Year, Coaches of the Year, and many of our teams stay ranked in the Orlando Sentinel rankings and the Metro Conference rankings throughout their respective sport seasons. This past year, our athletic program once again finished 4th overall in the East Metro Conference All-Sports standings which is a testament to the hard work put in by all.
I would like to thank NEMOURS Hospital for their partnership with the on-campus stadium and commitment to Lake Nona High School and to Lion Athletics. We are very proud to play all of our home games at “NEMOURS Stadium” as it gives our athletes and coaches a sense of pride as we take the field. We have a valued partnership and they have assisted our student- athletes in many ways.
I would also like to take the opportunity to thank all our other current community sponsors and partners for their willingness to support Lake Nona Athletes by purchasing banners in the stadium, the gym, the baseball field, and the softball field- we appreciate the support.
Again, a special “Thank You” goes out to all our Student-athletes and Coaches who put in so much time as we continue to get better! I would also like to say “Thank You” to our Parents and Community for all of your support each and every year! Finally, I encourage everyone to come out and support Lake Nona Athletics, our coaching staff, and our student-athletes as we embark on another successful year. Together we will be continue to be great!
