Looking outside it’s hard to believe that spring sports are only four days away.  A couple weeks ago the fields were free of snow and dry.  After school baseball players could be seen playing catch in the outfield while the football team worked on their conditioning on the track.  Fast forward 2 weeks and 30+ inches of snow later the fields are no longer green but covered in snow and ice.  The spring sun will help it melt faster than January however there’s always those spots that just refuse to melt and then there’s the waiting for turf to dry up so it’s not a giant muddy sponge.

Spring sports don’t wait for the snow though, teams must begin their tryouts and practices inside.  Anyone that has had to play baseball or softball in the gym or run through the halls for track knows this is not what anyone wants to do.  Spring athletes just want to get outside; the snow we have can not melt fast enough.  The current schedule has games beginning on April 3rd, we will have to wait and see if games will begin on time or will they have to be postponed.  Time will tell but before you know it we will be outside in shorts and t-shirt leaning on the fence watching a meet or game soaking up the warm spring rays.  See you along the fence…
