Spring Sports Swing into Action

April 26, 2022

Making a comeback from last year’s COVID-19 season, Susky’s spring sports are back.

Starting off strong, both boys and girls lacrosse have either perfect or nearly perfect seasons so far. 

Senior Katlyn Krebs, one of the captains of the girls lacrosse team, gives insight on the season so far with only losing one game.

“We lost a lot of seniors last year, and we’ve been doing really well with adjusting and staying strong as a team,” Krebs said. “A big goal for the team was just being able to work through that and make adjustments with some underclassmen…I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to step up.”

For boys lacrosse, junior Brad Bennett cannot wait to see where the undefeated team goes.

“Our team goals are to go undefeated, make it back to the district championship and take gold this year,” Bennett said. “After that, allow our momentum to carry into states and take a bid at the state championship.”

Also starting the season on a good hit, boys baseball is currently 9-2.

Starting senior pitcher Logan Houser has high hopes for the team this season.

“We have been set about winning the division in the regular season, and following that up with strong performances in counties, districts and hopefully states,” Houser said. “I hope the pitching staff continues to dominate and [junior] Joey [Smith] and I can meet our season goal of 120 combined strikeouts between the two of us.”

Taking off on a rough start, girls softball has not had as many games due to weather with a record of 2-5.

Junior Jocelyn Davis looks forward to the rest of the season with her teammates no matter the outcome.

“We’ve had a good handful of our games canceled due to weather situations. However, the season has been progressing well,” Davis said. “We’ve got a great group of girls, and I’m excited to continue playing this season and playing in seasons to come.” 

Boys volleyball has not had such a great start to the season; although, there are goals set for the team. 

Senior captain Jimmy Seiling believes there is only one way up for the team.

“The season has been going well,” Seiling said. “[Our] goals are improving as a team by working together better and picking up more wins.”

Track and field has been outstanding this year, staying undefeated with both teams 4-0.

Senior Shelby Derkosh sees the team going far with expectations.

“This year, I see the team having a very successful season, as we have already been performing excellently,” Derkosh said. “I am hoping that we all perform well and break more records and finish the season undefeated.”

Boys tennis has also started the season off on a good swing.

Sophomore Madden Losey set self goals for this season to better the team.

“I like getting the opportunity to have a challenge and a better team to challenge myself,” Losey said. “[I’m working to] improve and see myself improve in my skills throughout the season.”

With only one meet underway, unified track and field has started off well.

Junior Dylan Elliott has good hopes for the rest of the season.

“My goal for this season is to become a better teammate,” Elliott said. “I hope we can make it to regionals again this season.”
