I hate transitioning from one sport to another. Whether it be from foot- ball to basketball or basketball to base- ball/softball/track, the change in sport seasons is always rough for me. I really became invested in basket- ball this season. Now, it is truly over. On the natioual level, Wisconsin ended up busting the brackets of mil- lions with their win over Kentucky. Honestly, by that point, I had quit following the games anyway (I was still bitter at Louisville). Obviously, I didn't win my pool despite leading the pack through the Elite Eight (whom I perfectly predicted). Normally, I am excited for the re- turn of outdoor sports. I am a huge photography fan, and nothing com- pares to the quality of real sun light. This year, I am just not feeling that joy quite yet. Baseball and softball season are now well on their way, and track mid field has started making their rounds of meets, also. The high school and college are full of talent (as are the local little league teams). I think this transition may be the roughest because it means in less than two months, sports will be taking a short summer break. Those two months (June/July) are always the hardest for me. I fight to find the perfect stories. With that in mind, I want you all to make my summer a bit easier! What are the stories you want to hear'? Is there a former GCIIS/GSC athlete you want to catch up with'? Are there races or events that you want to see covered'? Is there a special interest opportunity being missed? Share your topics! Until then, look forward to lots of stories from the ball park, some track and field, and even a bit of spring ball! Minnie.
