Athlete Spotlight; MacArthur Fall Season
The fall season at MacArthur HS is off and running with the Generals off to a very good start in both boys Varsity soccer and football. The boys soccer team is undefeated up to this point in the season with a 6-0-1 record. The team just started the second half of the season and continued with their winning ways by defeating a very tough and stingy Carey HS team. The Generals are gearing up for a difficult and challenging second half of the season as they know that all of their upcoming opponents will be looking to deal the Generals their first loss of the season. Hopefully, they will stay focused and Coach Bill Lehmann will keep reminding them that they have to take every game seriously if they want to have any chance of qualifying for the playoffs.
