PRIEST RIVER — Spring sports are nearly upon us. Spartan athletes in golf, track and field, baseball, and softball are gearing up, coming together, and learning under the guidance of their coaches in order to compete for championships during this season’s contests. The Priest River baseball and softball teams kicks off their seasons by hosting local rivals the Newport Grizzlies in doubleheaders March 11. The first game for each squad will take place at 12 p.m., followed by a 2 p.m. rematch for both the varsity baseball and softball Spartans. The teams will travel to Riverside on March 14 for games at 3 p.m.

The Spartans competing in track and field will travel to Lapwai March 18 for a day of events beginning at 10 a.m. While most of their season will be spent competing on the road, the Spartans will host teams from across the region in a league dual on April 20, followed by the Priest River Invitational April 22.

Athletic director Matt George said the golf schedule may yet change, but at present the Spartans will tee off their season at Timberlake April 13 at 10 a.m. Like their peers on the track and field team, the golfers will travel for most of their competitions, but will host other schools on May 2 in a league dual with Kellogg.
