Late winter has harmful effect on spring sports

Traverse City West fears with the weekend forecast that they may not be able to have any home sporting events in the month of April.

TRAVERSE CITY -- Every high school area athlete competing in baseball, softball, soccer, track and field, golf and tennis are counting down the days until they can actually have a competition.

A select few have been lucky to get a game or event in in the slow start to the spring sports season but a majority of schools have had to postpone anything on their schedules.

Traverse City West, Traverse City Central, Cadillac and Petoskey have each had to cancel around 25 events so far this spring. Gaylord is already planning ahead for next week and with events through next Wednesday bringing their grand total of cancellations to 38.
