Spring Notes

Adapted Bowling, Baseball, Softball, Track & Field, Boys’ Tennis, and B & G Golf have found that the weather has been their greatest opponent. Extremely warm weather allowed us to begin practice outside on the first day; unfortunately, it became a scheduling nightmare throughout April. At this time our records are as follows:

Baseball – 3-1, Softball – 0-2, Track & Field – yet to run, Boys Tennis – leading the league in make-ups, B&G Golf – their 2nd event was the mid-season conference tournament!!!

However, Adapted Bowling keeps rolling along as our only true, indoor Spring sport.

Brighter days are ahead and real Spring will be coming soon. Go Tigers!
