Channel 3 Sports is proud to continue its “Student-athlete Shout out” feature series during the 2015-16 school year. Each installment will spotlight the recent accomplishments of a deserving Northeast Ohio high school athlete.
Lake Catholic’s Ivan Babic
Lake Catholic High School sophomore boys soccer standout Ivan Babic netted the decisive goal in the Cougars’ 1-0 win in the regional championship match against Marlington on November 7.
Lake Catholic, which completed the program’s first perfect regular season this fall, is set to play Bay tonight at Nordonia in a Division II state tournament semifinal match.
The Cougars (21-0-0) are making their second state tournament appearance in the past seven seasons, but are in search of their first state championship.
Babic has scored five goals and tallied 14 assists this season.
“Ivan has been an integral component to our high-powered offense,” Lake Catholic assistant coach Zvone Raguz said in his nomination of Babic. “Not only does Ivan excel on the soccer field, he maintains a high level of excellence in the classroom with a 3.8 GPA.”
