“[I expect] to get more wins [this season],” Melvin Torres, a lacrosse player, said.

Spring is just around the corner. Which means the spring sports are rising up from their yearly hibernation. Baseball, softball, boys and girls lacrosse, track, co-ed volleyball, and tennis. All throughout winter, these spring sports have been conditioning for the upcoming season in hopes that they will improve and retouch their skills.

“We’ve been doing long distance to work on our endurance because that’s what we really need to work on for outdoor,” Adama Doukoure, a sophomore on the track team said. The students on the indoor track team have been training everyday and preparing for the outdoor season.

“It doesn’t matter if you run fast or whatever. I guarantee you will get faster by the end of the season because our coach is so good,” Adama said, speaking greatly of her coach. Adama herself has decreased her time since the beginning of the winter season.

Track isn’t the only sport prepping up for the season to come. Baseball conditioning officially started in December.

“Since it’s the offseason, not everyone is in shape. So we’re doing that [running and going to the weight room] right now. Later on we’re going to be doing more work with the baseball,” Jordy Cisneros, an athlete who played baseball last year said.

The baseball players expect a lot for the upcoming season. They expect to have fun, win more games, and bond with each other.

Lacrosse, just like baseball, started their conditioning in December as well. Both boys and girls lacrosse are working to get back into shape and touching up their skills with the sport. Lacrosse, like baseball requires more than just running to play the game.

“Mondays and Tuesdays are offense, and Thursdays and Fridays are defense,” Mack Hildago, a lacrosse player said. The boys lacrosse team has been working hard and have been on their A-Game since December.
The spring sports are just around the corner. If you are a student, and aspire to join a sport, check these ones out. Go to conditioning. Tryouts for most of these sports are on March 1. Become aware of the sport you are interested in and get your forms done. Let’s hope that our spring season is a good one.
