The Lakeside Varsity team finished with a school record 25 wins in 2021. The disappointing loss in the first round of the GHSA playoffs doesn’t take away from an outstanding, memorable year for the Vikings. Several individual records fell as well….Joseph Garcia tied a Lakeside record for pitching wins at 10 and Malachi Cloud broke the school record for runs scored at 42. Congratulations players and coaches on a great year!!
On March 6th (weather permitting), Lakeside will be hosting a celebration in honor of Coach Donnie Hayes. Coach Hayes enjoyed a winning tenure at the helm of various Lakeside teams and coached many players who went on to play at the next level. The ceremony will begin approximately 20 minutes before the 2pm game at Wilson Field. Please come out to join the Lakeside community in recognizing Coach Hayes!

The Vikings baseball teams had a great Fall season with the Lollar team winning the DSB Fall league championship and the Brosnan team placing as Finalists in their division. Both teams played solid fundamental baseball and gained invaluable game reps heading into the winter.
A special thank you to Coach Stefan Lollar, Coach Joey Brosnan, and Coach Mike Reid for their dedication and investment in the Lakeside baseball program. We appreciate all of your efforts!!
Also, thank you to all parents/fans that captured the action at the games….and uploaded at #lakesidevikingsbaseball.
