Soccer Programs Open Season With Impressive Tournament Performances

The Lady Dragon and Dragon Soccer Programs are off to hot starts in the pre-district portion of their schedules. Both teams have competed impressively in multiple tournaments.

Lady Dragon Soccer

The Lady Dragons competed in the National Elite Prep Showcase (NEPS) the holiday break. NEPS is a showcase that matches up some of the top girl’s soccer programs in the country. The showcase was played at Dragon Stadium and various other stadiums around DFW. The Lady Dragons opened the tournament with a 5-0 shutout of Boerne Champion. Senior Taylor Tuft notched her first hat trick of the season scoring three goals on the opening game. The Lady Dragons went on to finish the tournament 3-0-1 after a draw in the final game. The girls outscored their opponents throughout the national showcase tournament 20-1.

The Lady Dragons carried the scoring over to their three games this past weekend against tough local competition.  Friday, the Lady Dragons played a tough match against the team that ended their 2018 season, Allen. A late goal from Madi Drenowatz sealed the 1-0 victory for the ladies. The Lady Dragons would go on to sweep the weekend with victories over Arlington Martin and Plano.

The Lady Dragons will be traveling to Birkelback Stadium on Thursday to take on Leander Rouse at 10:50 am in the opener of the Lady’s Governor’s Cup Tournament in Georgetown.

Dragon Soccer

The Dragon Soccer Program, under first-year Dragon Coach Aaron Cottrell have opened the season on a hot streak.

The Dragons rolled through the Richland tournament over the holiday break taking care of playoff Perennial team Bowie High School in the opener 3-1. They went on to shut out Eaton High School 6-0 and Trinity 3-0 to cap off the tourney. Robbie Pino had two goals in the Trinity game.

Dragon Soccer opened their home schedule before a raucous crowd with a 3-1 win over Arlington Sam Houston last week. Sam Houston is often considered a powerhouse in high school boy’s soccer. Nolan Mikolasik, Preston Myers and Carlos Trevino netted goals for the Dragons.

The Dragons headed south to Georgetown for the boy’s Governor’s Cup. This tournament is one of the biggest in the state for high school boy’s soccer. The Dragons kept their high scoring offense alive on this trip outscoring their opponents 11-0 over the tournament. The Dragons took down Deer Park, Wolfforth Frenship and San Angelo Central over the weekend trip.

The Dragons will return to action on January 18 versus Colleyville Heritage at Dragon Stadium at 7:30

Coffee and Conversation: An Open Dialogue about Racism, Discrimination & Intolerance

A Mom to Mom Coffee and Conversation is taking place Wednesday, November 14 starting at 7:00 p.m. at The Marq Southlake.

“I pulled together this event so that Moms can talk about what can be done to create meaningful change in our community,” said Mayor Laura Hill.

The conversation, which will be led by Mayor Hill, Carroll ISD School Board President Sheri Mills and Carroll ISD School Board Vice President Michelle Moore, is the latest in a series of community meetings and gatherings after a video recently posted on social media showed teenagers chanting a racist word to the camera.

“We want to have an open dialogue and talk about what we can do together to make meaningful change,” said the Mayor. “I am profoundly sad that even I did not know what some of our children and families have experienced and I feel very responsible for how we move forward.”

The event is one of many opportunities that will bring people together to talk honestly and share ideas about how to fight racism and intolerance in the Southlake community.

The Mayor and Board Trustees are organizing this Coffee and Conversation for Moms while City Council members are working on a similar event for Dads.

“Council and staff have made it clear we will be part of a solution for change, and we will work hard to be a supportive partner to Carroll ISD,” the Mayor stated.

Look for more community meeting information, including the second annual Celebrate Southlake on the City’s and Mayor’s social media accounts, My Southlake News and through the Carroll ISD Dragon eBlast.

The November 14 Coffee and Conversation will take place at The Marq Southlake, 285 Shady Oaks Drive.

LUSH, Johnny Was and TravisMathew to Open in Southlake Town Square

A laid-back West Coast lifestyle brand is going to be surfing in, the unforgettable aroma of handmade cosmetics will soon be wafting through the square, and a bohemian vibe brings a breezy new high-end aesthetic. New retailers who are about to call Tarrant County’s premier lifestyle destination home are bringing a decidedly “fresh” vibe with them. Southlake Town Square is pleased to announce that handmade beauty products expert LUSH Cosmetics, women’s boho brand Johnny Was, and men’s lifestyle brand TravisMathew have committed to opening locations in the square. These new retailers are expected to open in Southlake Town Square in early 2019.

“You asked, and we listened,” said Jason Kasal, vice president and senior leasing director – western division with Retail Properties of America, Inc. (“RPAI”), which owns and operates Southlake Town Square. “These retailers are a result of listening to guests and acting on the input that they provided as far as what they would like to see us add.”

Mr. Kasal and his team took to Southlake Town Square’s social media to ask shoppers what they might like to see open next, and a fan favorite, Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, was one of the most-mentioned names. The UK brand offers effective products from the freshest, organic fruit and vegetables, the finest essential oils and safe synthetics. Never tested on animals, every single Lush product is vegetarian, with many also being vegan and preservative-free. The brand offers luxurious and ethical skincare, haircare and bath indulgences, as well as unique gifts filled with their fragrant products. Lush supports fair trade, community trade and charitable initiatives, and will open in Southlake Town Square between Starbucks and J. McLaughlin.

Another fan favorite is the brand known for a high-end bohemian vibe, Johnny Was. The California-based womenswear apparel company is a celebrity go-to that is known for beautifully detailed tops, tunics, dresses and kimonos that are just as at home with a pair of jeans as they are out on the town. Shoppers will find Johnny Was in Southlake Town Square near Sephora and J. Crew.

Southlake Town Square is also elated to be the first location in Texas for TravisMathew. The lifestyle apparel brand offers premier men’s apparel and accessories for work and play, drawing inspirations from all aspects of Southern California culture. TravisMathew fans will find the brand located near lululemon in Southlake Town Square.

Also happening next year is a welcome back to women’s retailer Coldwater Creek, whose new store will open near Coach in 2019.

In 2018, Southlake Town Square welcomed Peloton and Hopdoddy Burger Bar to its lineup and will reopen the ever-popular Apple store after a transformational store expansion.

Chapel Crossing, the latest addition to the State Highway 114 Corridor, set to open this summer

Located at the southwest corner of White Chapel Boulevard and State Highway 114, Chapel Crossing will soon add to Southlake’s thriving health care industry, with construction scheduled to be complete in June and physician practices opening for business this fall.

The 48,600-square-foot, three-story Class-A medical office building will house a variety of medical occupants in the state-of-the-art facility.

JLL Healthcare Brokerage Lead Ryan H. Dale and Vice President Ruth Griggs are in the process of leasing space in the new medical office building and are looking forward to being a part of the Southlake community. “We’re excited about the upcoming grand opening of Chapel Crossing, which I believe responds to the need for more professional, Class-A multi-tenant medical office product in the growing Southlake community,” said Dale. “This immediate area is going to look completely different in a few short years. We’re approximately 45 percent leased with a strong tenant base committed prior to opening.”

The first practices expected to see patients at Chapel Crossing include: Irving Orthopedic & Sports Medicine, Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute, Aesthetic Specialists, and ATI Physical Therapy.

The medical development is a joint venture between Grapevine-based 2GR Equity, a commercial real estate investment firm, Dallas-based developer Brown Company Partners, as well as other physician-tenant investors. Prospective physician tenants also have the opportunity to invest in the real estate development as well. “We have been working on this project for some time, it has come together extremely well and I know it will be a great asset to the City and the 114 corridor,” said David Karr, of Brown Company Partners.

Chapel Crossing will contribute to Southlake’s growing medical community. Already home to several large health care facilities, including Methodist Southlake Hospital, Texas Health Southlake, Cook Children’s Urgent Care and Pediatric Specialties, and Southlake Medical Office Building, Southlake continues to offer patients a healthy variety of medical offerings.

For more information about this property and leasing opportunities, please contact Ryan H. Dale.
