COLDWATER, MI (WTB) - In Branch County high school sports, yesterday’s cold and sometimes snowy conditions with at least another day or two of winter like weather on tap have taken a toll on the opening week of spring games.
Here’s how it sorts out so far. Monday’s Quincy baseball and softball action was postponed and the same goes for the Oriole’s baseball game at home today against Fremont as well as Quincy’s track meet today at home with Coldwater.
In girl’s soccer, today’s season-opening match for Coldwater at home with Jonesville has been postponed because of field conditions and Quincy’s match today at Chelsea has also been called off. Scrubbed from today’s schedule, Bronson’s season opener in baseball at Prairie Heights and a Coldwater j-v softball game at Quincy. And Union City has called off its baseball and softball season openers for today at home with White Pigeon and also postponed Thursday’s home baseball game with Litchfield. The school’s athletic directors are working to see which events might be able to be rescheduled next month after spring break.
The Coldwater high school boy’s basketball awards banquet was last night. Jordan Eddy was selected Most Valuable Player while the Team Captain Award went to Nick Waterbury. Eddy and Grant Maurer were named to the SMAC East All Division team while Eddy was also chosen for the Battle Creek Enquirer All-Area team.
And this past weekend, it was the Coldwater gymnastics awards banquet. Kylie Dudek was recognized for most varsity points and name outstanding senior. The rookie of the year was Amanda Daoud. And Most Improved honors went to Kala Sperbeck for All-Around and vault, Erica Fellabaum for bars, Allison Clemens for beam, and Shelby Kahler for floor exercise.
Today on the Coaches Corner, it’s Quincy baseball coach Brett Allman.
