Spring fever has died and summer heat is in. As the school year ends, work and responsibilities are put to an end and Rose sports are also put to a temporary stop.
The 2013-2014 school year has come with many surprises and Rose athletes have had great success. Spring sports in particular have had such success. Starting off, the Rose women’s soccer team finished with a winning record of 13-5 with two games ending in a tie. Rose soccer also made it into the first round of playoffs.
Many other teams also had winning records this year, such as the Rose men’s tennis team with a 12-1 record. Rose track finished 15-6 for men’s and women’s teams. The Rose baseball team had a winning record of 20-2 and won four games in the state playoffs. Rose is very proud of this year’s stats and accomplishments.
“We worked very hard this year and i am proud of my boys and how far we went, it was by far the best year yet for me .”
The Rose softball team went 2-14 this year. Although they did not have as much success as the baseball team they still played hard and learned from their mistakes.
The Men’s lacrosse team made improvements from last year’s season with results for the team finishing 0-10 in 2013 . This year the men’s team finished with a 7-6 record and made it into the first round of the playoffs with a winning record.
The women’s team also improved from last year finishing with a record of 2-13 in 2013. This year the women’s team finished 13-4 and also went into first round of the playoffs.
“We had a lot of good players this year willing to put in the effort to win and it’s amazing that our first varsity team had such a good year and made it to playoffs, but no matter the outcome i was so proud of how far we had come and improved,” sophomore Lauren Holder said.
Holder was a captain of this year’s women’s lacrosse team. She explains that she was very happy with her team’s success and growth. Holder made her own achievements by being ranked tenth in the nation for ground balls.
“Being a captain was a great experience and I loved the girls and it awesome seeing my name on the national list for ground balls,” Holder said.
Another year may be gone, but this means soon it will be time for another tryout, then practices, then regular season games, and then hopefully playoff games!
