Spring Sport Preview List

by Brian Gewecke

So far, this year has been a very successful year for Las Lomas sports. With winter sports approaching the back-end of their seasons, those looking to participate in spring sports should begin looking at the list of sports available to play. The list includes baseball, softball, swimming, lacrosse, diving, boys’ golf, track and field, boys’ volleyball, boys’ tennis, and competitive cheer. 

For anyone intending to play a spring sport, keep in mind that many of these sports have practices that begin before the official season. The baseball team, for example, has had practices starting at the beginning of the school year. If you are currently still doing a winter sport, you cannot begin a spring sport until your winter season is finished. Otherwise, it is recommended that you get in shape for your sport early.

“Track’s great,” commented Grant Askins, a junior, who runs in both track and cross-country. “If you have a sport like soccer, it’s a great way to stay in shape for the next season. I like running because it’s a fun way to keep in shape while meeting new people”.

When junior Griffin Hamlin was asked about baseball, replied, “It’s definitely a big commitment with a good amount of offseason work, but it’s fun. I’ve been playing baseball for years, and I definitely think that more people should”.

For anyone with time to spare, it is recommended that you participate in a spring sport, as it can give you a fun experience with opportunities to spend time with people you normally may not spend time with. Sports in general are a great way to build social skills as well as hone athletic ability.
