MCHS spring sports teams compete with weather in early season

The spring sports season got into swing Monday with the first day of official practice for Moffat County High School teams. For four of the five teams — baseball, track and field, girls golf, and girls soccer — practice means staying indoors for at least a couple more weeks. For coaches and players who compete outside, practicing indoors because of the weather can make the early season tough. “Before we head to the Montrose Tournament on March 16, we will be in the gym until then,” baseball head coach Justin Folley said. “Some years, we are in the gym until April because with the different weather we get here, our field can stay muddy and make it hard to practice on.”
