The Start of Spring Ball 2021

College of the Sequoias Sports is officially back on the field for conditioning in preparation for the start of the 2021 Spring season. It’s almost been a year since the last time the campus has seen any sports action, and resuming any type of sport brings joy and happiness to all athletes. This season is going to look quite different than in years past, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but being masked up isn’t going to stop any coaches and athletes from going back into their athletic mode.

COS football started their Spring conditioning this past Tuesday, with determination to start off from where they last finished. During the 2019 Football season under head coach Joe D’Agostino, COS finished with a final record of 6-5 overall. After taking the 2020 season off due to the pandemic, the Giants are looking to come out with determination to fight with everything in their power, under the new head coach of the Football program, Travis Burkett.

The softball program at the college is continuing their practices and conditioning as well. These strong and motivated ladies are working harder than ever to get back into their daily routine of playing ball. The 2020 softball season for the Lady Giants started off wonderful in full effect. Their season had started January 29, 2020, with a doubleheader against Diablo Valley College, which they went 1-1 that day. However, the season didn’t last very long as the team’s last game was played on March 12 beating Taft College in a shutout 17-0, the day before the county went on lockdown due to coronavirus. The 2020 season wasn’t intended to be short, however over that short time span, the Lady Giants finished with a final record of 14-8-1 overall. Head Coach Cori Janelli and the rest of the team are ready to look past 2020 and start the 2021 season in full bloom.

Spring Sports are going to look a lot different this year as in years past. Athletes must stay masked up and use sanitization whatever they touch and do. Without masking up, and not following precaution protocols, athletes wouldn’t be where they are at today. Looking ahead, we are waiting for the announcement to come for when games are officially back on the Campus agenda. However, until the announcement, athletes are going to continue striving every day for success in the future.
