Spring is Finally Here


As winter's reign slowly comes to an end, high school athletes work their way outside for the final season of the athletic calendar. Little time is wasted as the weather gets closer to optimal. 

On Saturday (Mar. 29) baseball and softball seasons begin. Ross was the 2013 SWOC softball champion, while Harrison and Ross split the baseball title. Last season, Edgewood, Talawanda, Ross and Harrison all won at least 16 baseball games. Ross won 23 softball games which included an impressive postseason run that ended at the regional final.

Northwest is coming off a boys' track conference title and a state championship in the 4x100. The Knights lost some key runners and athletes to graduation and they'll most certainly be the team to beat in the conference and into postseason action. Talawanda won the girls' track title last season. Wilmington is the defending boys' tennis conference champion.
