Practice begins for spring sports / April 15, 2021

Springs sports are now under way at Halifax County High School with several teams returning to practice.

Turnout was good and hopefully sports teams will be able to field varsity and jayvee squads — much like the volleyball team was able to do.

HCHS athletics director Allen Lawter said he’s pleased with what they have seen so far.

“So far I think spring sports are going well,” Lawter said. “Baseball and softball I think will have both varsity and jayvee. Boys and girls tennis, I think we’re good.

Lawter said boys and girls soccer numbers were down slightly for several reasons. So, they will be determining in the next days whether having jayvee squads will be possible this season.

He said schedules would be forthcoming. Martinsville which has seen limited action on returning to sports and GW due to decreased numbers in certain sports may have to be adjusted on the schedule.

“We’ll have our kids in track that participate, Lawter said on Wednesday. “Spring sports I think are going to be okay. We open up two weeks from today.”
