As the spring season is rounding the corner, spring sports are also quickly approaching us. Baseball, Softball, Tennis, Women’s Soccer, Lacrosse, and Spring Track are the spring sports that are showcased at Panther Creek. In the past years, our spring sports have been fairly strong, but could seek some improvement. PCNN set out to seek information from student athletes from each of our spring sports, and here is what we found.

A common answer when asked about our school’s biggest rival was Green Hope. Jake Perko, a senior baseball captain, stated, “You know, the fight for 55 is a huge event and we are going to beat them both times this year.” Perko seems to have great hopes for his senior season as he plans to absolutely ball out on the diamond.

Trice Pickens, a hopeful avenger of his consecutive second place finishes at the men’s 4A tennis state championships, is a senior this year. He also stated that “Green Hope is good, not as good as last year, but it’ll be tough” when he was asked about his thoughts on the new conference. Pickens, an extreme talent who will go on to play Division 1 tennis, is a strong competitor for state champion this year.

Shying away from competition, we had the chance to ask PC athletes about their goals for the season. Sierra Brown, a senior who runs track, had some high hopes for this season: “My goals for this year are to get the best offer that I can and hopefully win a state ring.” Brown has some offers already, but is still deciding on which school would be best for her.

Lauren Reichardt, a Division 1 women’s soccer commit, voiced her goals to us as well, and hopes to live up to the 2014-2015 women’s soccer team that brought home a state championship to Panther Creek. Her goals for the season included “winning the conference” and “getting as far as we can in the state playoffs.”

“Break some records, get some dubs, like always,” as Johnny James puts it, a senior lacrosse captain who hopes to lead the team to the playoffs with senior midfielder Paul South by his side. Johnny James has been a part of the lacrosse team since his freshman year and has dedicated himself to the team.

Ultimately, we hope that all spring sports have successful years, and reach their goals by the end of the season. And, most of all, we hope they all beat Green Hope.

Seek the truth, and report it.
