At Marian there are several seasons of sports. Fall sports kick off the school year, and are looked at as a new start. Yet, perhaps the ‘new start’ is rather found at the end of the year. Spring sports awards are used as a platform to launch a whole summer of preparation. The Senior athletes are finally off to college and a bigger stage. For the rest of the athletes, there is a whole season of training and experiences to come.

When all the athletes were gathered at the start of the event they were all given tasks as they move into the summer. Each grade was presented with a task; incoming Sophomores were told to teach the new Freshmen the ropes of High school, Juniors asked to help the new Seniors, and Seniors with leading the school. Perhaps the most important task was given to the former Seniors, the now College Freshmen. They were told that their work at Marian was done, and to focus on making their new school better by being there.

Awards are given out as a congratulations for working hard during your sports season. However, many athletes work just as hard out of the season as during it, and there is no reward for that extra work. They take the summer and push themselves to do better in their sport next year. This extra push comes from enjoying your sport and wanting to improve, there is no award that can encompass this determination. They are truly deserving of whatever they receive during this award ceremony, and of the praise that comes with it, for they have worked hard to get where they are. Even if it is not during their ‘season’.

Spring, at school, is usually the wrapping up of the school year, the end. To the rest of the world it is a beginning, new life comes from Spring. Maybe it is time that Spring sports are not looked at like an end to things, but a fresh start. A SPRINGboard to the summer, and to the new challenges faced by the athletes.
