Winter Blahs

March 18, 2014

After this long, cold winter, I am really looking forward to the spring sport season.  Let’s hope that the weatherman has a better forecast for April and May than he has had for the past 4 months.  We will need rain for the lawn, the crops, and the trees, but let’s hope it comes early in the morning or late at night so the spring sports can go on as scheduled.

I am looking forward to working with Coach Gausman’s track team.  The girls are coming off a very successful last season, and they are hoping to win another conference and sectional championship.  The boys team has also been winning regularly over the past few years.

The girls team returns 3 athletes who performed at the state last year.  They are Riley Goldsmith in the 400m dash, Virginia Westerfeld in the 100m dash, and Kim Tidman in the high jump.  The boys were not able to get any of their regional performers into the state.  Both squads have had state champs in the past 5 years, and Chris Giesting (a student and athlete at Notre Dame) is performing at an extremely high level.  Ellie Tidman of Vanderbilt recently had her best collegiate high jump ever.

Good luck to both high school squads and to all the former Batesville athletes performing at the collegiate level now.
