With all the cold weather lately, it’s hard to believe that spring sports are starting. This week, we talked to some spring sport coaches and players about the upcoming season.
When asked what he looks forward to this season, DHS Baseball Coach, Coach Huey, said one word, “winning.” He continued to tell us that he also looks forward to the growth of all players in the program.
Junior baseball player, Briar Fischer, had this to say on the upcoming season: “I think we’re going to win a lot this year. Everybody is into it and ready to play.”
This year, DHS is adding a new sport, archery and fishing. Coach Daegling told us, “I’m mainly excited to get kids off their phones and into the outdoors. These sports have a lot of scholarship opportunities, so I’m excited to see the success of our kids.”
Senior, Jordan Reando, told us about his the first season of fishing at DHS: “I’m excited to be a part of the first season to see how it goes. It’ll be tougher but it’s worth it. It’ll be fun to start something for the school

Senior tennis player, Katie Chandler, is excited to make lots of memories one last season.
Girls track coach, Coach Frank, told us this about the season: “I believe this team is extremely well-rounded with a bunch of hard-working kids in every event area. We are focusing on all the little things that lead up to great results. We hope to contend for individual and team titles in conference and districts along with improving our performance at the state meet.”
Junior, Emma Portell, told us she’s “excited for a successful season with my amazing teammates. We have all worked extremely hard, and I believe we can make huge improvements as individuals and as a team.”
Head girls soccer coach, Coach Reiser, also told us about their upcoming season: “I am excited for the number of athletes that came out this year. We will grow in soccer knowledge all year but it is nice to start with girls that are fast, agile, and ready to play hard.”
Cristina Miret-Alvarez is excited about the upcoming soccer season: “It’s my first year playing. It’s really fun to try another sport.”
We would like to wish all spring sport coaches and athletes the best of luck this season!
