Swinging into spring

Spring sports have just started to begin, and baseball and softball have been practicing as much as they can to prepare for the future games. On March 25 both teams had a scrimmage.

“The team has built a great bond already and we are progressing in the right direction to have a very successful season,” said Junior Alexis Hartland.

As a team, softball and baseball still have things they need to work on to help them win. Something the baseball team needs to work on is their hitting said Senior Josh Burger. As for softball, Sophomore Jocelyn Jean said the team needs to work on putting the ball into play.

“We have a lot of underclassmen that are stepping up into big roles, and some of them have big shoes to fill,” said Sophomore Marco Pulizzi.

Although spring sports have just started, there are a few people who are sticking out to the players,

“Nolan Kutney sticks out to me because the kid can swing it and he is going somewhere,” said Josh Burger.

As for Hartland, MacKenzie Weaver is standing out the most to her because she has really stepped up and brought the team together.

“I want to keep the team motivated at all times, and to make sure we at least have fun this season,” said Hartland.

Pulizzi and Burger said the team wants to have a winning season, win districts, and win a state championship.

“The goal as a team is to just do our best and leave everything out on the field,” said Jean.

The softball team’s first game is on March 30 against Lewisburg, while the boys’ team is on March 31.
