Two weeks ago, tryouts began for Northwest’s Spring sports including men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s golf, baseball, softball, men’s tennis, women’s soccer and outdoor track. Each has had preseason scrimmages and are ready for enemy teams coming their way.

Varsity lacrosse has begun with women’s headcoach Kaitlin Brown, and men’s head coach Daniel Tichy. Freshman Katie Keller is one of the girls that made the varsity lacrosse team out of about 40 who attempted this year.

“I’m really excited, I think that it will be good for me to get a lot more experience with the older girls,” Keller said.

Their first game is at High Point Central on Feb. 28 at 6:00 pm and the men’s team will play on March 1 against Mount Tabor at home at 7:30 pm.

Pole vaulter David Nguyen throws his arms up in excitement for this track season. The head coach is Mitchell Smith and their first meet will be against Southeast Guilford.

 

Men’s golf, with head coach Ron Bare, has their first match on March 7 at Bryan Park at 3:30 pm against Northern Guilford. They won their conference last season and hope to get a repeat this year.

Varsity Baseball with head coach Sonny Gann has their first game on Feb 28 at Northern Guilford at 7:00 pm. Junior Drew Demmers and sophomore Gavin Mortenson made the team out of about 50 that tried out.

“[I went for the team because] I’ve been playing baseball forever,” Mortenson said.

Last year they were close to conference champions, and like golf, hope to achieve it this year.

“We were one or two wins shy [from winning conference],” Demmers said.

Varsity Softball with head coach Michael Everette has their first game on March 1 against Glenn at 7:00 pm. Freshman Bailey Barrow made the JV team out of about 26 that tried out. The JV team is coached by Emilea Gross.

“I’ve loved softball ever since I was little, it’s always been a sport I’ve been in love with,” Barrow said.

The track team has also begun with head coach Mitchell Smith. Their first meet will be on March 13 at Southeast Guilford at 4:30 pm.

“It’s fun and I get to be in shape, I’m a jumper, so I just jump,” Sophomore Jenna Revak said.

Winter track came in third place in conference this year, so Revak has high hopes for Spring.

The Varsity women’s soccer team, coached by Terry Murphy has their first game on March 5 at Bryan Park at 7:00 pm.

“I like soccer and I decided to try something new this year since I didn’t try out last year,” Sophomore player Paris Stankewich said.

Men’s tennis with head coach Bill Davidson has their first match on March 6 at Northern Guilford at 4:30 pm. Last year, three players including Rohit Ramkumar made it to regionals and the team, as a whole, placed well in states.

“I love the game of tennis and I wanted to add another year of sport,” Ramkumar said.
