Will cold weather delay the start of spring sports

With the late arrival of the winter weather that has taken hold around the region, one might find themselves wondering when, or even if, the spring sports season might get under way. Well if you might be one such person, there is no need to wonder any longer.
I received spring sports rosters from Athletic Director Bruce Todd on March 13 for the high school, along with a message that high school track & field and high school baseball practices have started. The likelihood of some postponed games and/or meets is high but will not be known until next week when the first games are scheduled to be played. The first scheduled game for baseball is Tuesday, March 19, in Brewster and for track & field is Saturday, March 23, at the Ray Cross Invitational in Ephrata.
The baseball roster lists 16 players and includes two eighth-graders. The track & field team has 21 on its roster, 11 on the girls team and 10 on the boys team.
Athletes playing golf and tennis will be playing with teams of the Harrington Panthers. The first tennis match of the season is scheduled for Friday, March 16, in Chewelah and golf is scheduled for Tuesday, March 19, in Harrington.
Junior high spring sports have not started yet, but will be starting soon.
