With Winter Sports coming to an end a bunch of  athletes will look to transition into a Spring Sport:  track,baseball, or softball. The athletes no longer will be stuck inside a gym or on the mat and will be able to go outside and participate in their respective sport- weather permitting. 

As far as track, athletes have the ability to choose an event. They want to throw or be a runner. Senior, Carter Tobias, a short and mid distance runner, says, “I hope the team and I do well this year, especially since we will have a lot of new athletes coming out.” 

Coach Daubert, the Head Coach of the track team, says, “I hope we do well as a team, and individuals as well.” 

The Lady Cardinals Softball team is trying to retain the State Championship again this year. Coach Lefler says,“Coming off a season of that caliber  and with the loss of ten from graduation, I believe this team needs to not worry about who shoes they need to fill. They will set the team goals and stride for them. The chemistry has been very good  and if they continue to push each other I believe this group can make more high school memories that will last a long time.” 

The baseball team is looking for a good year as well. Coach Keith Lehman says, “Looking forward to another year of PGA baseball. The team goals never change as we always want to compete for a league playoff spot, qualify for districts and make a postseason run. Playing in Division I with all the bigger schools is a challenge but throughout the years the program has had success and competing against the big schools have always prepared us while qualifying for the postseason.The player turnout of 25 is the lowest in my 21 years but I believe they are 25 players that want to be there. We will need some younger players to have some baseball growth early, mesh with the upperclassmen and make contributions to elevate our varsity success level.”
