Athletes Stay In The Game During April Break

As April break rolls around, students begin to file away for vacation and take a breather from school. However, for many Spring athletes, they must stay home or adjust their schedules for sporting events.

Patrick Lesch’14, co-captain of the boys’ lacrosse team, has been playing during break for years now.

“I didn’t have to change or re-adjust any plans because games are scheduled every year. This is always announced prior to the season starting and all students interested in playing are told that they have to be home in order to be on a team” Lesch said.

Their two games are scheduled for April 15th and 17th.

According to the co-captain of the boys’ volleyball team, Todd Goldstein’14,“Every year, the volleyball team has at least two games over break. But Coach Shepro still gives us time off and lets us travel if we have plans. He just prefers that everyone is there, especially the varsity players.”

Those games are on April 14th and 16th.

The boys’ baseball team has three games on April 14th, 16th and 17th, and even hold practices on the days that they don’t have games.

“Everyone on the team is aware that we need to be around during break for games and practice, so no one really makes plans during April Break,” Sam Ellinwood’14 said.

For those participating on any sports team, it’s highly recommended that you don’t make plans over break because in the grand scheme of things, being a student and an athlete comes first.
