Big-9 out with abridged spring schedule

Big-9 Spring Schedule

The Big-9 is moving forward with a plan of a much-abbreviated spring sports schedule. According to an email from Wenatchee Athletic Director Jim Beeson, “we have recreated all of the spring schedules with the assumption that we start back to school on April 27th.”

Beeson said, “We have pushed back the start times and moved a lot of things to Saturdays to minimize the amount of class time the kids would be missing. If we are able to have an abbreviated spring season, we will also continue to play games after the postseason starts if we are not involved with it.”

The baseball and softball seasons would consist of a total of six games. The boys soccer season would also be reduced to six games over 12-days. Big-9 tennis would be reduced to six matches and boys and girls golf would be a total of three pods each. The spring track and field schedule would be trimmed down to three meets on consecutive Saturday’s in May.

We also heard back from Jeff Carlson, the Athletic Director for Cashmere, in reference to the CTL’s plans. He said they’re still going over options and schedules. Carlson said they’re looking at possibly doing away with district tournaments for baseball, softball and soccer with teams qualifying for state out of their league record. He said that would allow for more league contests. Carlson said they hope to have clarity in the next two weeks.
