Action is on the diamonds, courts for CCHS teams

As far as the weather is going this spring, the past week or so has been pretty good for our three spring sports teams at CCHS in that it hasn’t snowed since last Tuesday, has in fact warmed up a little, and the rain has more or less been only spotty throughout the week – allowing the Bat Dawgs and Lady Bat Dawgs to get in most of their games in this still young season.

The season thus far for the Racket Dawgs is another story, however, as first year coach Dipesh Soma has noted recently that it seems just enough rain has been encountered to keep his team off the courts for almost all of their scheduled matches.

Consider that a little wet surface on a tennis court is much more hazardous that a little moisture on a baseball diamond.

All of that said, there is still plenty of action to enjoy at Clinton County High School with our three spring teams and their respective seasons.

As we head toward the last week of April, both the softball and baseball teams still have more than a month of regular season games and post-season play in front of them and the tennis team should be in action – weather permitting – through the first of May.

The Bat Dawgs are scheduled to play host to Celina next Monday afternoon with a 4:30 p.m. start, while the Lady Bat Dawgs will be on the home field next Monday and Tuesday. Both games are slated to start at 5:00 p.m.

Although the weather will be something to be considered, home matches are scheduled on the CCHS tennis courts for this Thursday and Friday, April 24 and 25, against Monroe County and Allen County, respectively. Thursday’s matches are set to begin at 4:00 p.m., with Friday’s matches slated for a 4:30 p.m. start.
