NORWICH – With the presence of snow still on the ground, it’s hard to imagine that the spring sports season is upon us and that we’ll be treated to some excellent Chenango County sports action.
Being partial to the spring sports season such as track and field, baseball, softball and tennis, spring has finally sprung and it won’t be long until these baron snow wastelands which currently resemble something similar to Siberia, will be filled with the many athletes who make the spring season their number one priority.
According to Tornado head track coach Shaun Horan, there is a lot to be excited for.
“Our team goals are to win a Class B championship” said Horan, “We fell short of that last year, but feel we can compete for one again this year.”
Horan’s squad is perfectly seasoned with the right amount of established veteran athletes as well as a teaspoon of unknowns that add some deadly speed, quickness and depth to the Tornado roster.
On the girl’s side, Horan noted track newcomers such as Sarah Binelli, Halea Eaton, Taylor Hansen and a surprising senior addition of Gabby Mirabito.
Originally a softball player, Mirabito joined the track program this year after a career ending injury, toughness is one of her leading attributes and something that fits the program’s attitude.
