Grand Island baseball remaining patient during suspended season

By  | 

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Spring high school sports teams have been in limbo since the NSAA suspended all practices until Monday, March 30 and all competitions until Thursday, April 2.

Like most teams across the state, the Grand Island baseball team had a week of practices before shutting things down. First year head coach Kirby Wells has been in contact with his players as they try to stay in shape outside of school facilities.

"Our weight room coaches, Coach Tomlin and Coach Williams have put together some workout stuff that we could do at home," Wells said. "Trying to get that out to our guys but we can't really meet with our team right now. Can't do workouts or anything like that, so until further notice we're going to have to wait this out a little bit."

With the season still up in the air as schools remain closed indefinitely, Coach Wells said players are still asking when they will be able to practice again.

"I talked to a couple of them on the phone and they're very disappointed. Especially some senior boys who said, 'What do we do from now? What do we do from here?'" Wells said. "I don't have those answers yet and some questions that they have, 'When we gonna practice?' It's yet to be known so just have them be patient."
