CLAREMONT — Another winter season has ended, and it was the best I have been involved with since joining the Eagle Times seven years ago. We are under new management with Jay Lucas purchasing the newspaper, and there are lots of new faces at the Eagle Times prepared to bring the glory back to the region with an invigorated attitude. Local sports teams keep bringing hope and excitement to our area.

It’s always a challenge to win championships and to have successful and competitive teams, but our area produced. It seems every year that more students choose not to be involved in sports. Many athletic directors and coaches struggle to field teams, but to the ones who commit to playing and pushing forward, we appreciate you more than you know, and so do your communities. There is nothing like covering teams and watching some struggle while others are successful; the ultimate reward is hoisting a championship trophy. The desire to compete is undeniable.
