With the winter season concluded it’s time now to turn our attention to the spring season as practices got underway today despite the snow on the ground. First off in our week of spring sports previews we take a look at baseball and softball who both have different expectations entering this new season. The baseball team is coming off of tremendous postseason run a year ago as after finishing the regular season 11-9 the team went on a cinderella run to their first ever state title appearance before falling 5-1 to Taconic. With several key returners including D1 commit Henry Weycker the team is poised to be a favorite to contend in D1 once again.
Softball meanwhile is looking to finally get a taste of postseason play this spring after coming up short the past few seasons. Despite finishing 5-15 a year ago the Raiders did win their last 2 games which hopefully will give them momentum as they enter a new season. With a solid core coming back look for the Raiders to vie for that elusive postseason berth. Tomorrow we will preview both boys and girls lacrosse.
