The weather is terrible so it must be time for spring sports again. Spring athletes have been inside getting ready for their seasons hoping Punxsutawney Phil is right about an early spring.
The baseball team has been getting ready for their season with open gym. As for softball, they have been doing the same.
Baseball coach Andy Harmon and his staff are excited to see what the varsity team can do this year.
“The boys have been working hard in the gym and are anxious to get outside. The coaching staff is excited about the upcoming season as we will be returning most of our varsity team and are looking to make it deep into the playoffs this year,” said Harmon.
Austin Mayo, the new head coach for softball, believes his team is set for a good season this year.
"I am excited about the upcoming season. There are a couple of coaching changes throughout the program but the strong traditions of Lowry softball that have been established by past coaches and teams will remain in place,” said Mayo “We have several girls returning and I believe we are in an excellent position to compete for the top team in the league once again."
The track season is approaching open gyms started on February 18. The season starts on March 4. This upcoming track season is one to look forward to according to coach Grant Beatty.
“We are excited to get started and build upon our success from last season. We look forward to working with new athletes that join the team, as well as, the returning athletes who helped our team last season,” said Beatty. “Each year brings a different group of athletes and watching them all come together and grow individually is what makes it fun. Each coach will bring their own training techniques for their respective areas (distance, throws, jumps, sprints, and vaults) and look to implement any new changes/coaching techniques early in the season. Hopefully, the weather cooperates and we can get started soon.”
The swim open gyms started the February 7 and the season for swim starts February 23.
Swim coach Shelby Ruff is excited to get to work and put her small team this year to the test.
“So far, it's looking like our team this season will be small but strong. Three of last year's four state qualifiers is returning and everyone coming to open swims has competitive swimming experience which puts us in a good position to spread our points over multiple events,” said Ruff. “Right now we don't have enough athletes to win as a team against some of our larger competitors, but you can bet we'll make a strong showing at an individual level.”
The golf season is starting on February 25 and coach Andrew Meyer is about all the hard work you put in but having fun at the same time.
“High school golf is about having fun and making memories, do you want to be the kid who laid up on the 18th hole at state, no, swing hard play harder,” said Meyer.
If anyone would like to try out or play any of the spring sports, contact the particular coach of the sport, or check Lowry social media for information.
