In March of 2021, due to COVID-19, spring sports were at a setback so that winter sports could finish their seasons. Winter sports typically end in the beginning of March, but they are now scheduled to complete the season towards the end of the month. Many players who are participating in the spring are upset about the delayed start, but are excited that they are getting their season, unlike last year when it got cancelled entirely because of the virus. MHSAA (Michigan High School Athletic Association) had said that there will be a “one- week delay ” on spring sports because of how it was in 2020, “they will get lifted downtime restrictions for this year’s season,” record-eagle.com said. Roseville will kick off their spring activities starting practice as soon as possible, even though many have already been working out in the aux gym in the mornings before school begins.
“I am really excited to play this year and achieve the goals that the team and I set last year before everything got cancelled,” senior Madison Milot said.
It is unknown yet what the restrictions are, such as how many tickets will be provided to each player, considering it is outdoors and restrictions are changing. But the players have a packed and eventful season ahead of them, with seniors making the most out of it.
