Juarez Lincoln High School’s boys soccer team has built a statewide reputation for their success in soccer. However, this year the girls soccer team has built their own reputation for the successful season they’ve had.
Leslie Lopez, Jimmy Carter Early College High School student and Juarez Lincoln athlete, has played a big role in the team’s success.
Leslie Lopez initially played as a forward, a position that helped her understand the game. Mid season, Coach Garza moved Leslie to the back line. Successful in playing defense, the back line has set the record for preventing the most goals ever.
Leslie Lopez said, “ This year the team’s attitude has been different compared to other years. We can always rely on each other and sacrifice everything on the field.”
Today’s 7-0 win against Mission High School takes the Juarez Lincoln’s girls soccer team to a record of 31 wins and 1 loss. Next Tuesday, March 5th, the team will face La Joya to try to extend their record wins.
On July 15, 2015, Houston Dynamo founded RGV Toros. RGVFC Toros brings competitors in the RGV the opportunity to play at the highest youth level in the United States. There, they can become the next generation of players for the RGV Toros.
There is a school named IDEA Toros, where students practice soccer to improve their skills and get a chance to be recruited. The Rio Grande Valley FC Toros is an American soccer team from the United Soccer League that serves as a hybrid affiliate of the Houston Dynamo from the Major League Soccer. The basketball team RGV Vipers and the soccer team RGV Toros share the same owner, Alonzo Cantu, and are both owned by Lone Star, LLC. The RGV Toros is located in Edinburg, Texas, and they have a stadium (H-E-B Park).
The Houston Dynamo officials met with the USL officials about creating a team. That means that Houston Dynamo will be responsible for the soccer operation of the club, selecting players and coaching staff. Lone Star will be responsible for the actions and day-to-day management of the club. Houston Dynamo’s president called the relationship “an important and necessary step.”

This excellent effort reinforces classroom theory. It provides an amazing learning experience and opportunity for students to comprehend the behind the scenes in the creation of an artwork and builds a strong foundation in the appreciation of the visual arts.
