Spring sports are back and I'm excited to see how everyone has grown and what this spring season has to offer to everyone! This is the first time where everyone is fully back in school during their spring sports so I wanted to get some input from athletes themselves about how they feel about a few different things and the mask mandate being removed and what they are looking forward to.
I interviewed Kenneth Edwards who plays Lacrosse and Ella French who play Softball. The first question I asked the both of them was, “How do you feel about the Covid mandate for masks being removed and how do you think it will affect you and your season?” Kenneth Edwards' response was “We weren’t allowed to wear masks over our helmets last season so it doesn’t make a difference for us this year” while Ella French’s response was “I have mixed feelings about the mask mandate being removed,Its a positive because I get to see peoples faces again and we are returning to semi-normal but its a negative because what if cases go up and our season gets put on pause?”
The second question that I asked the both of them was “How do you feel about every sport returning and after two years? Does it feel whole again?” Ella French led the conversation with, “I feel very happy and nostalgic in a way about all sports returning because it's such a positive thing and a return back to normal.” Kenneth Edwards’ response was, “It feels great, especially for the ones I missed out on due to injury and Covid. But it doesn’t completely feel whole.”
The last question I asked the both of them for this interview was “What sport are you most looking forward to watching this spring season?” Kenneth Edwards kept it short and sweet with a simple response “Lacrosse.” Ella responded, “I am looking forward to watching lacrosse this season because I have a lot of friends that I am able to support!”
