With winter gone and the snow melting, the sun peeking out, the rain falling, the flowers growing, temperature rising, and spring approaching, that means baseball, golf, track, and soccer are right around the corner.
This year’s baseball team consists of nine seniors: Leighton Meyers, Eric Hietpas, Cory Diedrick, Carson Mara, Jacob Schmieder, Cole Wyngaard, Tyler Hietpas, Caleb Robinson, and Noah Manser. They are returning 7 of the 9 starters from last year’s team. The Mustangs finished with a 12-13 record last year. This year they are looking to win the conference and make it to state.
This year’s Golf team consists of Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshman. Junior Connor Mara will have to lead the team after making it to sectionals himself last year. He is looking to redeem himself and make it to state this year. The team seems to be coming together nicely. Last year they had a lot of sophomores and freshman on varsity so the experience should help them.
This year’s soccer team has only five seniors: Morgan Pluger, Nicole Sanderfoot, Ellie Mueller, Kendra Schumacher, and Kenia Gonzalez. They are looking to have a successful year after a not so good one last year. Kendra Schumacher led the team in goals last year and is hoping to do it again.
This year’s track team is trying to repeat from the success that they had last year. They had a total of 31 athletes that went to state last year. Tess Keyzers broke the state record for shot put last year taking first at state. They are looking to win conference and send more athletes off to state and hopefully bring home some 1st place hardware.
