By Noah White, junior


Softball

The girls softball team has gotten off to a great start with a record of 14-2, their only losses coming from Cloverdale and Brown County. The softball team is county champs after defeating both Bloomington South and Bloomington North. The team looks to continue their success throughout the season before playoffs beginning on May 26th.

“We’ve had a nice season so far. We gotta work hard and make sure we don’t have any glitches in the season. We’re playing really good and hopefully things turn out well for us,” head coach Mr. Hammett said.

Baseball

The boys baseball team, with a record of 9-4, has had a roller coaster season with some ups and some downs. The Mustangs started the season with a record of 0-2,  falling short to both Bloomington South and Bedford North Lawrence. The Mustangs turned everything around and are now on a 5 game winning streak. Their playoffs begin May 27th.

“I’m very excited. I love the way the guys are playing. They’ve all put in a lot of time in the offseason and they don’t complain. The guys are great to work with and they all build off each other and its nice to see them all work as a team,” head coach Mr. Jones said.

Tennis

The girls tennis team has started the season off with a record of 3-5, with two weeks remaining in the regular season. Although they are almost done with the regular season, they have a couple of games to make up and could eventually ending the season on the right foot.

“This season has had its ups and downs and we got two weeks left. We lost one of our seniors from a foot injury but a lot of young underclassmen stepped up and filled in for her. So were almost done but were fighting for a good finish to the season,” head coach Mr. Talbert said.


Golf

The boys golf team has only had one golf match so far this season, placing 6th out of 9th in the mustang invitational. The golf team still has 17 more matches this season and then they advance into the playoffs after their 18 matches.

“Were all optimistic about this season. We have four seniors and a lot of guys coming back so were all hoping for good things,” golf coach Mr. Lee said.

Track

The Edgewood track team is in their last week of the regular season. With many different scenarios in the season, the Mustangs track team looks to finish off the season strong. Next Tuesday and Wednesday are the WIC championships. The girls are running at home on Tuesday and the boys are running at Northview on Wednesday.

“I felt that we did great. it was a little rough at first but then we all got together as a team and we have just been doing good since then,” freshman Destanee Evans said.
