Spring Sports

Believe it or not, the spring sport season is rapidly coming to a close for the high schools.  Except for a couple of sports (baseball, for example) the season will be over at the end of May or the first week of June.

With the bad weather we had through most of the spring, teams either lost a lot of playing dates or they had to double up the last couple of weeks.  Most spring sports are not able to reschedule.  It is too difficult to find open dates for both teams involved or it is very difficult to replace officials or playing sites.  What this means for some sports is that the athletes must compete in less than ideal conditions.

I know there are headaches involved, but I would like to see the spring sport schedule begin one month later and run into June.  This, of course, would mean that all the summer programs we now have would have to be changed.  As I said, it would involve a lot of headaches, but wouldn’t it be nice to have 70’s and 80’s and dry days rather than 40’s and 50’s and rain?
