LAKE MARY — Kickoff Classic night was definitely an interesting one for Seminole County prep football fans last Friday night.
Lake Mary High School got the evening off to a rousing start with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to unveil its new synthetic turf field and new scoreboard at Don T. Reynolds Stadium before large crowd with several members of the Seminole County Public Schools Administration and Board as well as the Lake Mary High School Athletic Booster Club, distinguished alumni and former administrators of the school on hand.
The turf and scoreboard are just the beginning of the refurbishment of Reynolds Stadium as a new synthetic track will be installed during the Winter Break, plus new paint and other amenities will be added to the stadium seating area.
Once the games began, there were some surprising results as teams that dominating during the Spring Games came up on the short end on this night, while teams that struggled in the Spring came up with big wins.
