Varsity Baseball: 1-2

This year the Varsity Boys’ baseball team has had a rather sluggish start to begin the season. They are 1-2 after a couple of rain outs had robbed them of a winning record this season. Currently, they are 1-0 in the division after a recent 4-1 win against South Lake in extra innings. So far their pitching staff has been adequate, other than some late inning blunders, and when their bats heat up they’ll be a team the rest of the division will have to reckon with.

“We’re playing just fine, but the hitting and pitching hasn’t shown up together. Once it does we’ll be firing on all cylinders,” senior Dylan Rochon said.

 

Varsity Softball: 2-2

With a new coach at the helm, the varsity girls softball team has excelled early on. Even with the youth of the team they have displayed maturity while batting and in the field. Their ability to keep their composure late in games will prove to continue their success as the season goes on. The team will look to make a hard push this season to try and win the division. With the team that was assembled this year things can only get better.

¨Piper is a good coach and we’ll improve as the season goes on,¨ senior Haley Kavalar said.

Varsity Girls Soccer: So far this season the Varsity Girls have made a really good run of things. Through their first four games this season the girls are 4-0 backed by four straight shutouts by sophomore goalie Lauren Orler. Their excellent defensive play mixed with steady pressure on offense has aided the goal tending effort. Their most recent victory came April 19th in an 4-0 win against the New Haven. At the moment captain Alex Martin is leading the team with six goals scored followed closely by sophomore Amber Hook with 5 goals. The girl’s placed 3rd at a recent Fitzgerald tournament after an early loss to Tower then two straight wins in the second and third round.

¨We all have the same objective and want a banner. We plan to strive to achieve our goals,¨  said senior Madelyn Kay.

 

Varsity Track Girls:0-2

The team has not had too many meets to prove themselves this year but in the few showings they’ve had there were some standouts. Mikayla Sumrall has broken personal records and lead the Panthers to a decent start this season despite their 0-2 record. They hope to improve as the season goes on to get some wins and to prepare for the end of the year. This team has some bright young stars that make them look prepared for the future.

 

Varsity Track Boy:1-1

The gun went off and the boy’s blazed past their opponents at their recent Fitzgerald invitational Friday. Despite competing against twelve teams, they took gold in four events and received a medal in six. This propelled them past their competition and allowed them take home the first place trophy. Other than the invitational they have ran relentlessly ran in their other two meets winning one. They boast potential state athletes that look to compete as the year goes on.
