PHS baseball players are hoping for clear weather for the rest of the spring season.

PHS baseball players are hoping for clear weather for the rest of the spring season.

They say April showers bring May flowers, but so far this season, the rain has brought disappointment to many Pattonville athletes.

“It’s really frustrating to be in a game mindset all day, and then find out that you don’t have a game at the end of the day,” sophomore Samantha Wright commented.

Wright is a member of the lacrosse team, who have already seen two of their four home games rained out. With minimal referees available for lacrosse games, it may be difficult to reschedule these.

“I love looking forward to having my friends out on the home field supporting me,” said Wright. “I’m hoping the rain won’t stop everyone from being able to see our team play at home.”

While lacrosse sometimes has the option of playing on turf, other teams like baseball aren’t always as lucky when it comes to rain.

Unable to play on a field of mud, the freshman and junior varsity baseball teams have already had to cancel three games this season.

So as the end of the school year nears and time for spring sports is running out, students at PHS are hoping Mother Nature will be on their side.
