All fields sit empty this fall because of the cancellation of spring sports.

Mr. John Groess, Ultimate Frisbee Coach: “As a coach, I’ve never defined anything by like wins and losses and like what the team could have been but I do think to not have a season where we’re even allowed to try is really really hard. .. And I think what also makes it hard too is not being able to say goodbye even or just like you know just be sad together.”

Ben James, Baseball Player: “I’m just sad and disappointed that I’m missing out on this baseball season. I was looking forward to getting out on the field again, and we for sure could have made another run this season.”

Sarah McGurl, Girls’ Lacrosse Player: “I think it’s really sad that spring sports aren’t happening, especially for seniors. For many of the seniors this would have been the last time they are together with a team playing a sport and to miss out on that is an experience they can’t get back. So many people have been training all year long to pay this spring so it is sad seeing that go to waste.”

Charlie Warnert, Class of 2020: “I feel bad for the kids that trained all winter for their main sport in the spring and didn’t get to play it… especially if they are seniors.”

Mallory Mathwig, Class of 2023: “I feel terrible for the senior students that were relying on spring sports for college or even for students who are very serious about their spring sport.”

Xela Gunvalson, Girls’ Lacrosse Captain: “It is what it is. Yes, it is upsetting to not be able to play but that sacrifice has impacted the world greatly.”
