It’s hard to believe district competition for the spring sports is nearly upon us already. Maybe all the rainouts, cancellations, and rescheduling made the season fly by, but whatever the culprit may be, we’re now at most less than two weeks away from the playoffs for most sports. 

Unlike in professional or even collegiate sports, regardless of how well or how poorly a team’s regular season might have gone, everyone gets a ticket to the playoffs. Some might not think that’s the best idea, but I would argue that it’s a fantastic thing for everyone involved. In the heightened stakes of the district playoffs and beyond, everyone has to lay everything on the line.
