PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: NCHS takes over top spot in boys’ soccer district

Thomas Nelson started off the boys’ soccer season as the hottest team in the 5th Region, easily eclipsing its 2018 win total before the end of August.

The Generals didn’t suffer their first loss of the season until Sept. 7, by which time they had ascended not just to the top of the 19th District standings, but the 5th Region leaderboard.

All the while, however, Nelson County was quietly having a big season, and the Cardinals’ 5-2 loss last week to the Generals was just their third setback of the year.
