Winter weather delays start of seasons

Zionsville — Monday, March 25 was supposed to be the day that the Zionsville baseball team, ranked No. 1 in Class 4A in the preseason polls, starting its quest of improving on last year’s semistate appearance.

But instead of facing off against Boone County rival Western Boone in the season opener, the Eagles — and the rest of Central Indiana — were forced to postpone because of snow.

The bad weather that has plagued Zionsville and other area schools, forcing them to alter preparations for the spring season.

“We have been fortunate because we have the turf football field so we have been able to get outside some,” Zionsville baseball coach John Zangrilli said. “We have had some practices under the lights there and gotten on the field when we can.”

The baseball team is far from the only team that has been affected by the weather.

Nearly all of the Zionsville teams have had all their games postponed the last week — the lone exception being the boys lacrosse team, which went 1-1 in a trip down to Louisville during the weekend.

The softball team has had three games postponed so far and there is a decent chance they — and nearly all the outdoor playing teams — don’t start their season until April because of spring break approaching and most schools don’t schedule games because families leave town.
