Is it spring or fall?
Based on the confusing high-school sports schedules its’s hard to tell. With football, volleyball, cross country and field hockey currently taking place and the cool weather still around, that would indicate it’s the fall – October or November.
However, with the trees beginning to bloom and the grass starting to turn green, that would suggest it’s early spring, and baseball, softball and lacrosse games should have started, as is usually the case in mid to late March.
But that’s not happening. Practices for public-school spring sports don’t begin until April 12, with games April 24.
The pandemic has changed everything all up, delaying the high-school fall sports seasons until now, and moving back the beginning of the spring campaigns.
Sometimes it’s confusing to keep all of that straight.
When football is played in October and early November, leaves are still on trees. Same with the prep golf and cross country seasons. Not now, which looks so weird and makes the confusion about the time of the year all the more hard to immediately figure.
