Lockwood High School opened its doors in the fall of 2019 with just freshmen students. This is what it was like to start an athletic program from scratch in their words.
As the school year winds down, and with the 2019-20 high school sports season officially put to an end April 22 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lockwood’s programs can look back with a sense of history, hope and pride.
For all the Lions coaches, 2019-20 was about developing traditions, foundations and a culture for their programs, but for spring sports coaches, a canceled first season will have impacts down the road.
