2024 Spring Sports Preview

In 2024, Woodbridge High School’s spring sport’s players and teams look to come out strong for another strong year.

In 2024, Woodbridge High School’s spring sports look to come out strong for another strong year. I talked to the captains and players of these teams to say what they think about their upcoming seasons.

Baseball: Captains Tyler Weber and Shawn Kish.

Weber said he’s most excited to see how the team does this year. “This team is one of the best in the last couple of years.”

“I’m looking forward to winning a championship,” added Kish.

Kish and Weber agree that they have been working hard in the offseason. Whether it be with the team or without, they’re both striving to make the team better.

Both captains agree that the expectations they have for themselves are the same as they were last year. The goal is to put something on the banner, beat the school’s win record, and finally win a state championship ring.

Weber said our strong point is the experience this team brings into the season. Having only two graduates and nine rising seniors is a huge advantage for us because we have experienced the game at a varsity level and that gives us an edge over a lot of teams.

 

Boys Spring Track: Athletes, Jahmir Beal, Bryan Anderson

Anderson said he is most looking forward to competing in meets and the time he gets to spend with his teammates at those meets. “While I love competing, the best memories happen off the track surrounded by my teammates.”

Anderson and Beal both said that in the off-season they had been pushing themselves to build good habits. They have collectively been strengthening their legs working out, going out for runs, eating right, hydrating, and sleeping well.

Both Anderson and Beal are expected to be Nationals runners this year, that is both of their individual goals.

Beal going into the season is ready to improve by already dropping 100m time in preparation for Nationals.

“I believe this can be one of our best years yet this upcoming season. The depth we have and the competitive nature we have built over the course of this short amount of time into the season excites me for what we can accomplish” said Anderson.

Beal said, “This will be a year to remember for the program.”

Golf: Captain Kyle Coleman, Player Luke Vazquez.

Coleman and Vazquez agree that they are excited to get better, and some more competition before completing their senior years.

Vaz said he’s always been playing golf, but this year has locked in and been practicing more and improving every week.

Vaz hopes to collectively improve as a team and go far in the GMC Tournament.

Neither played for the golf team last year, but both hope to step in and step up after a lackluster season last year.

Boys Volleyball: Player, Jerimiah Allen

“I am looking forward to winning the division championship, and winning a playoff game,” Allen said.

Allen said he has prepared by going out and practicing whether it be with my teammates or by myself, just trying to get better every day.

“My expectations for this season are building a team bond, having fun, and winning championships.”

Allen said to improve from last year he has been working on little things and has worked on being perseverant and confident.

 

Softball: Player Kylie Rackett

I am looking forward to playing with my teammate this season, we all prepared for this season by creating a good bond with each other.

Rackett said, “No expectations, I just want to win!” Rackett said her goal for this year is to have a better approach at bat this year.
