The DeKalb County High School soccer team kicked the season off on March 12 by coming out on top of their annual playday at DCHS. With the contests lasting only one half each, DeKalb won its first playday match against White County 3-0 at 9 a.m., came back at 11:40 to take Stone Memorial down in a 2-0 game, and tied Cannon 1-1 at 12:20. An afternoon match against Livingston Academy ended in a 1-1 tie as well, but when the teams returned to the field for another go, DeKalb bested LA 1-0 for first place on playday. Cristobel Flores, Miguel Ramirez and Brandon Ortega scored three each goals for the day, while Miguel Rodriguez and Brady Gill both contributed a point.
