Spring sports season is right around the corner, and players are getting their work done in conditioning. 

The Boys Lacrosse team is preparing for their third straight year in Division One. Their first game of the season starts on Saturday, March 9th at Spring Mills.  They lost a couple of good players after their first year in Division One, but they are rebuilding this year and hoping to win a lot of games. 

“After all our practices, conditionings, and tryoutsI think we are ready to win games this season,” said senior Garrett Grimes. 

The Girls Lacrosse team has been preparing for their season too. Their first game starts on March 9th in Cardinal country after the Boys Lacrosse game. Their key players senior Taylor Barrett, junior Lauren Wrye, and sophomore Harley Paige were selected for last year’s All-Star game. They are ready to step up their roles as the leaders of the team.

“We may have lost a lot of track athletes from last year but we are coming in strong in all our track meets and states this year,” said senior Jacob Michael. 

The baseball team is ready to hit the field and get a lot of wins this season. They are excited, and they are hoping to make it big this season. They have been lifting and doing indoor practices during the off season.  

The SMHS Boys and Girls Tennis Team is determined to make this season the best season, and they have been putting in a lot of effort during the off season. Some players made it to states last year, and they are hoping more players will compete at states. The SMHS spring sports athletes are ready to break school records for Cardinal Country and bring home some trophies.
