Southmoreland’s spring sports are kicking off in a positive way this season even while facing winter weather that doesn’t seem to want to leave.
“We’ve been outside a grand total of twice this season” said senior on the softball team Micheala Burke. “But we’ve really been putting in a lot of work in the gym.”
Despite the weather, the softball team was able to play, and win with a score of 7 to 1, a scrimmage at Beth Center on March 19.
“Being in the gym for so long can get boring so we had to take this opportunity to play,” said head coach Todd Bunner. “I’m really proud of how the team is coming together. The girls work hard and it showed in how they played.”
Boys baseball also scrimmaged on March 19 at Bentworth and won with a final score of 4-2.
“It was a good game,” said senior team captain Max Zimmerman. “The team has been having a rough time the past couple years so this win was a good way to start the season and we all contributed.”
Coed varsity track held an exhibition match at home on the 19 but the score of the scrimmage was not calculated.
“I was pleasantly surprised with our progress, “said head coach Mr. Dave Keefer. “I think we’re on track. We are getting the relays where they need to be and figuring out which individuals will be where which is the purpose of a scrimmage.”
All in all, Southmoreland’s spring sports teams have begun the preseason with success, and there is much anticipation as participants are excited for the winter weather to clear up and the outdoor season to begin.
