Flag football coach, Chris Nguyen with the championship trophy.

Championship Comes to Lotus

November 30, 2018

Lotus School for Excellence has won their first ever sports championships twice in a year. This year the middle school Volleyball and flag football teams brought home the win along with marvelous trophies.


A lot of effort and practice was put in by players and coaches to make it as far as they did, although it wasn’t easy in the start. Both teams suffered challenges that they had to overcome with the help of their coaches.

Both teams had Lotus’ support with them through the championship. Dee Jackson, the Athletic Director at Lotus, was extremely thrilled by the championships.

Coaches were honored to have been involved and loved coaching this year. Middle school really has done well.

I interviewed a few students and asked them about the experience; here are the questions and their answers.
