What’s that delicious smell? Ah, the smell of hot dogs and nachos from the baseball and track meets, of course! With the upcoming seasons for the GC track team and baseball team are ready! Starting with the baseball team, Adam Hutchison, 10, who you can find in left field or pitching, said, “I feel like this season will be a pretty good season. We lost a couple of people, but I feel like some of the freshmen that have come in will help a lot.”

         As far as GC’s rivals are concerned, Hutchison said, “I feel that the biggest competition will be New Pal this year. We split them last year in conference, and they have also lost a few players.”

The track team is also excited about their season. Adam Lee, 11, who runs the 200m and is also a pole vaulter, said, “I believe this track season will come around short for the boys as usual. However, I do expect us to place higher in county and conference this year.”

Lee considered several teams as rivals for the Cougars. “As a full team (our competition) will be Mt. Vernon, New Pal, Shelbyville, and Pendleton.”

Lee mentioned that his personal rival was a pole vaulter from Shelbyville, Jae Eull, 11.
