From the student section: Cox Mill

Logan Albers is a student at Cox Mill High School and a member of the cross country team. He shares his thoughts on Cox Mill athletics in "From the student section."

With Spring Break upon us, Cox Mill Sports take a break from the action as teams enjoy some time off.

In baseball, the Cox Mill Chargers have struggled, with varsity going 0-15 and JV 0-9. Despite the hard season, the Chargers look to build off each game and gain valuable experience to help establish a winning tradition at Cox Mill.

In softball, the Lady Chargers are now 4 - 5 overall and 2-2 in the conference. This came after an impressive 2-1 victory over rival Northwest Cabarrus Trojans. Led by Nikki, Katie, and Brooke, the girls look to improve their record as we near the end of the season.

In tennis news, the boys continue to give wholehearted efforts on the court. While victories are scarce at this point in the season, close games and matches, like a recent one with Carson, prove that the boys have a true potential and its only a matter of time before they gain some nice victories on the court.

Boys' and girls' track has had its share of ups and downs this season. The Chargers participated in a early scrimmage with Northwest Cabarrus and has produced some strong individual scores in many key events. The team has competed three times at Mount Pleasant and once at Carson. Now they move into conference meets with opponents including Jay M. Robinson, they look to build off of strong times and establish a name on the track. Parker, Lucas, Arrick, Tori, and Ariel have been top scorers for the team, and the 4x100 and 4x200 have produced many victories in their events. The Chargers continually look to build on their success as a home meet is upcoming.

In golf news, Garett Ray, Brandon Cordell, and Eric Boumann continue to lead the team in scoring. Austin Albers and Tyler Untz have also produced great scores on the green. The boys are currently fourth in the conference and have produced a second place finish at Rocky River Golf Course. With three matches and one post season tournament left, the boys look to finish up strong.

With Spring Break in full swing, the Chargers rest up for what will hopefully be a strong finish to an inaugural season.
