LPI aims for 5th Soccer State Championship in School History

Sports

LPI is a small group, but as Shakespeare once wrote, "though she be but little, she is fierce!"  That can be used to describe the boys soccer team.  In a school of only 426, the Lydia Patterson Institutue is aiming for their 5th TAPPS Division two State Championship.

LPI will face Awty Houston in Houston in the TAPPS Division 2 State Semifinal Friday.  LPI has a tradition of winning, earning state championships in 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2007.  The Lions have not been back to the state tournament since 2007, and missed out on a chance to go last season due to the freeze that overtook El Paso.

Though they are a small United Methodist school located in downtown El Paso, the Lions are 8-4 this season, after playing much larger schools in El Paso.  Their coach, Ruben Yuen, likes their overall work ethic.

"They show character and play their hearts out, and we're actually in downtown, a small school downtown, and we just come to play and have fun."  Junior goalkeeper Jose Saenz loves the fact that they have gotten this far.  "it's like a dream, I have never been in something like that, so this is my first time in the semifinals and state championship, so it's right." 

As a senior, Sintiago Torres is excited about getting to the state final four, but hoping his emotions don't get the better of him.  "We're so emotional about getting there, we're happy about it, we think we're going to bring it back home."
