    Winter Weather Effects Spring Sports

    JV soccer players bundle up for a cold game against the Holt Indians. The Knights were defeated with a score of 1-0.

    As the snow fell and the temperatures dropped, spring sport athletes were faced with a problem. Track, Soccer, Tennis and Baseball all moved inside to practice and workout. This got a little crowded because Men’s Volleyball was using the big gym for practice. The Golf team could not even meet on some days. Not is it only annoying for the athletes, it’s hurting the team as well.

    “We can’t do the drills we need to do or work through certain issues we have out on the field.” Varsity soccer player Alissa Hale said. It doesn’t help that our bodies can’t adapt to the climate seeing as its always changing, and we can’t scrimmage which I think is the most important.”

    The snow and the freezing temperatures cancelled many of what would be the first games of the Soccer, Baseball, and Golf season as well. All of the games/matches will now be later on in the year, only making the season longer for the athletes. Seasons that originally ended mid May will now be ending at the end of May.

    “It has already affected our season because we’ve had to reschedule two tournaments and two matches.” Varsity golfer Tanner Davis said. “We haven’t been able to practice at the driving range or on the course.”

    Although the lack of practice and the temperatures being so cold, most athletes seem to think the snow hasn’t affected them that much. Many have been training in the off season, for some it’s only a tiny speed bump in the works.

    “It hasn’t affected my season yet because I trained a lot over the winter but if we got outside more I feel like I would be a lot faster.” Varsity runner Brandon Rosner said. “It hasn’t slowed me down personally but it hasn’t helped me get faster.”
