It’s been about three weeks since the Minnesota winter high school sports season came to an end in a flurry of state tournaments. In the weeks since, you have a mixture of kids who need a break from the grind and others who are itching the get the next season underway. And for seniors, it’s the last athletic season they’ll have in high school.
The spring sports season should have started already, but with the cold and now snow on the way, spring sports are once again falling behind.
There was nobody more frustrated by last week’s foot-plus of snow in southern Minnesota than the state’s spring prep athletes.
It’s the worst fear of any high school athlete who competes in a spring sport in Minnesota: the sight of rain or snow.
It’s no secret. Many Minnesotans are sick of the long winter season and so are thousands of high school students who’ve had to practice inside and cancel games.
