It is finally May!
Believe it or not, we have finally left the rain and cold of April. Let’s hope that the month of May is much kinder to not only the sports world but to all outdoor activities in our area. We are now at the time of the year when the spring sports at our area schools are beginning to build for the climatic state series. Track will be the first to start the sectional process in mid-May. Tennis will follow.As we move into the last week of May and early June, baseball, softball, and golf will begin their state series. The seniors on all of our area teams will be wrapping up their high school sports careers. Some of them, we hope, will be able to continue their career at the next level. For those who don’t, we wish them well in whatever endeavors will follow after graduation.Every year there are one or two athletes here in Southeastern Indiana who start on a journey that they hope will take them to the ultimate level of being pro athletes. This is an arduous trek. We wish them the best.
