Spring sports are finally here and the ‘Rines are excited for the spring 2017 season. It is a new beginning for sports as new players and coaches come out this year looking for success throughout the season.
Tryouts for all spring sports were held March 1. There are a wide variety of sports including: baseball, softball, boys lacrosse, girls lacrosse, boys tennis, boys volleyball, coed volleyball, and boys and girls outdoor track. The ‘Rines want to work hard and pursue their goals of winning.
The baseball team hopes to dominate this year and continue to get better each game. “I think tryouts were really good,” sophomore Spencer Neill said. “I am really excited to play and I want to work hard as a team and go far in the playoffs.”
Softball wants to increase the communication on the field to be more efficient this season. “I think we should keep the drama away from the field and communicate better as team. Also, when we make mistakes we should not get upset, just focus on the next play,” junior Jesceline Monegro said.
Boys lacrosse wants this season to be a learning experience since there are many new players. “Tryouts will be a little difficult knowing that there are many new players,” junior Royce Fianko said. “I would like to run a lot of drills to improve knowledge. As a team our goal is to do better than last year.”
Girls lacrosse believes this season will be a rebuilding process because they lost a lot of seniors. “It will be a tough environment to work in because we lost good players and we will just have to work hard to accomplish more wins than last season,” junior Katherine Campbell said.
Boys tennis looks to increase the teamwork and encouragement to be successful this season. “I think this year we will be better because now that we are in a good division we will be working harder to beat the teams we lost to last year. I want all our players to become better,” junior Devin Jameison said.
Volleyball is looking to improve on previous seasons and make the team stronger. Team bonding and communication will create a great season. “Tryouts were very busy and fun but stressful because there are many players that tried out and we can only keep about 8-10 players,” senior Juan Miranda said.
Track knows they have the abilities to make it another great season, but they’re working harder each day to make it happen. “We need to work hard as a team every practice to continue to get better. I would like everyone to make it to regionals again and just have a successful season,” junior Aaron Merlos said.
No matter what sport they are playing, spring athletes will be looking to make a splash in the classroom and on the field.
