Here are your Monday headlines from the Lawrence/KC Metro area:

  • Lawrence High’s girls soccer teams will take the pitch under new head coach Justin Young starting today. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Young was an assistant coach for Pembroke Hill’s boys soccer team in Kansas City, Mo. The school also welcomed Jacob Brewer, the teams’ new assistant coach, who has had ties to the Lions’ soccer program in the past.
  • Sporting Kansas City will part ways with four players after declined contract options. Most notably, the team will take the pitch next season without former Real Madrid-star and Brazilian midfielder Julio Cesar, who scored three goals in 53 first-team appearances since signing with Sporting in 2011. Defenders Cyprian Hedrick, Neven Markovic and defensive midfielder Konrad Warzycha also declined contract options on Monday.
