• College hires new soccer coach

    George Kee

    Aug. 13 — George Kee began his new job as the Lassen Community College men’s soccer coach last week and has already assembled a team and set high goals for the upcoming season.

    Kee is originally from San Antonio, Texas where he has been playing and coaching soccer for the past several years.


    Before becoming a coach, he played soccer as a child and in high school, then moved on to play four years in college in Austin, Texas. After college, he began coaching with a division of the  United Soccer League Super-20 League.


    While he has visited Southern California on vacations before, this is his first time in Northern California.


    “It’s beautiful,” he said.


    Kee started in his new position last Monday and began practicing with the team Tuesday. With the season starting at the end of this month, you might think Kee would be overwhelmed with the amount of work he has to do between now and then. However, he says it’s been a lot less stressful than one might expect.

  • Lassen Arsenal soccer still undefeated

    Sept. 23 — Lassen Youth Soccer has recruited a talented group of 12 to 13 year old girls who play for the Lassen Arsenal.  

    The team played the Jaguars, of Red Bluff, on Saturday, Sept. 20 looking for their fourth straight victory. 


    With several key players recovering from illness, the team left town before 8 a.m. to get to Red Bluff on time. Once there, the girls wasted no time getting their offense rolling.


    The Arsenal played good possession soccer, making good use of give-and-gos, as well as passing to open space. As a unit, they moved the ball down the field and made some excellent shots on goal. Four shots made it past the Jaguars’ keeper in the first half and three more in the second half. The Arsenal was aided by some breakout offensive performances by Lily Francois and Jamie Elliot.
