It was a pretty busy winter around here for high school sports.
The Gridley boys basketball team advanced all the way to the CIF Division V semifinals, while the girls had a nice playoff run of their own.
Both teams won their BVL titles.
Gridley senior wrestler Jace Villapania advanced to the state tournament as well, a nice way to wrap up his career.
And the Gridley boys soccer team made a good playoff run as well.
Now it’s time to pass the torch to spring sports.
Someone needs to CC the memo to Mother Nature, though!
I always enjoy getting outside to cover baseball, softball, track and field, tennis and golf.
It’s a nice change after being cooped up in gyms all winter.
And I can tell already that we have some good teams in the area this spring, in a variety of sports.
So our spring sports season is probably going to extend well into June.
Fine by me!
See you out there this spring!
