The weather is finally cooling down, and with that comes many things that can only be enjoyed this time of year. Sweaters, hot chocolate, and chilly nights are wonderful, of course, but there is something else that stirs excitement this time of year: Horizon Honors’ winter sports.

Middle school winter sports include boys’ baseball, girls’ softball, as well as co-ed cross country. Paperwork is due Nov. 4, so don’t wait too long. The first tryout is on Nov. 10, so don’t miss out.

High school also has great options for sports this winter. Boys’ soccer, girls’ soccer, boys’ basketball, girls’ basketball, and co-ed spiritline are all fantastic options. High school paperwork is due on Oct. 28, and the first practice is on Nov. 3.

Junior Anna Jacobs is planning on spending the winter season playing soccer on Horizon Honors’ team. Anna had played soccer in second grade, and has decided to give it another shot along with her best friend during high school. To prepare herself for the season, she is doing conditioning on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as running at the gym. When asked how she felt about the tryouts, Jacobs responds with “I’m nervous and excited. Tryouts are tryouts, there is always going to be fear of looking like a fool in front of the rest of the team. Yet, I can’t wait to get to know the girls on the team and really have some fun this season.”

You don’t want to miss out on Horizon Honors’ winter sports. Time is running out, so don’t wait too long to sign up for these great athletic opportunities.
