O’NEALS — Spring sports teams at Minarets continue to progress into their seasons. Both baseball and softball played more pre-season games, and the new track team competed in their first meet.
It was a full week for our athletes, but the work is paying off already, and will continue to be apparent once the real season starts.
On Tuesday, Mar. 14, girls softball played the Immanuel High School Eagles here at Minarets. The game was tough and resulted in a Mustang loss, 15-7.
The new track team was excited to travel to Dinuba on Wednesday, Mar. 15 for the St. Patrick’s Day Classic. They had 12 runners across several different events, ranging from 100-meter races to shot put.
We had several runners place competitively in the overall standings, setting lots of new personal records for the runners, and brought home two medals. One was won by Lucy Cummings in the girls 100-meter and the other by Cole Shattuck in the boys 200-meter.
Softball played in a second game on Thursday of last week, traveling to play at Sunnyside High School. Unfortunately, our girls were still unable to pull out with a victory against the Wildcats, losing 12-2.
League play starts at the end of this month, giving them time to come together as a finished team.
Expect more updates as the teams move into league play.
