Practices hard to come by for Clippers

This spring’s volatile weather has played havoc with the high school warm-weather sports programs.

Teams have been forced to practice indoors, which limits the drills they can do.

The Dauphin Clippers baseball team had only one outdoor practice before the recent snowstorms moved them into the DRCSS gymnasium.

“The gym has had a lot of bookings and everybody is interested in spring sports. It’s been a while since we’ve been able to play the spring sports,” said Clippers coach Don Sheldon. “So there’s been a lot of interest and so there’s been a lot of booking. And, obviously, with the snow and weather outside, we haven’t had the chance to practice outside other than the open time before the first Colorado low came.”

Sheldon has been impressed with the number of students coming out to practice. As many as 23 players have showed up so far, he said.
