Sam Spargur enters his fourth year of being the Lady Lions head coach at Fairfield High School.

Last year, the Lady Lions fared well in the season with a 9-7-1 record overall and were 3-3-1 in the Southern Hills Athletic Conference.

The Lady Lions lost one of their biggest scorers to graduation in 2014 in Kaitlin Evans. Coach Spargur says that he has several girls that may try and fill that hole.

“I have had several players step up this year so far,” said Coach Spargur. “It’s very early in the season, so it’s hard to say who that player will be right now.”

Coach Spargur also has high hopes for his team when it comes to league play.

“I believe if we play our game the way we practice it, we should be able to hold our own in the SHAC this season,” Spargur said. “It’s also a little early to be talking about tournament, but I have confidence that if we play the way we are capable, we may surprise a lot of people.

“Right now my forwards and midfielders are working really well together. So far this season they both have scored. We will need to make the first touch quickly and effectively.”
