Spring Sports Preview


The baseball team is currently 6-2, with wins over Pioneer, Madison Grant, and West Lafayette. The team is led by a group of strong seniors consisting of Chase Long, Cole Long, Brock Burton, Dakota Titus, and Carson Workinger. After last year’s tournament run that ended in regionals against the Carroll Cougars, the team that we shared the conference title with, the team is looking to continue with its tradition of excellence by making another good run this year. The team has already shown that it has what it takes to win, and with memories of regional and semi-state games in their heads, the team believes they can get back there again under the coaching of Mr. Ryan Long.



The Lady Oracle softball team has gotten its season off to a 2-3 start. The team has faced strong teams in the opening of its season, and looks to grow and learn in order to make a run in the state tourney. The team’s leaders include Jayden Klopfenstein, Evann Royal, Bailee Curts, and Riley Paz. Despite a slow start to the season, the Lady Oracles have shown potential and could be dangerous down the road.


Track and Field

The track and field team has started off its season with a group of meets. The team has already had individual event wins in different parts of the meets, and looks to put the pieces together to win a couple of meets down the road. The team is led by a handful of seniors including Mia Wilson, Eric Achor, Brenton Pierce, Aubrey Frost, and Dante Arnett. The team also has talented non-seniors who will contribute to the success of the team, including school record holder Miah Sinks, junior Brandon Terrell, and Sarah Perry.


Girls Tennis

The Lady Oracle tennis team is now coached by Mr. Kyle Cross. The team has thus far started off 2-2 as a team, but has found success in doubles, with the doubles combo of senior Abby O’Neil and junior Ryn Zimpfer having two wins already. The team’s leaders include Abby along with seniors Makenzy Miller and Wren Isom. The team has experienced athletes, and as the team gets deeper into their training, they could become a team to watch out for.


Boys Golf

The men’s golf team has officially started their journey to become back to back winners of the Hoosier Heartland Conference title. The team has brought back four of the five top scorers of the past year in sophomore Braydn Gleason, sophomore Braydon Fosbrink, and sophomore Kaleb Hosier, and senior Cade Nelson who has advanced to the state regional for the past two years. The team was able to show their skills in their first Saturday tournament at Coyote Crossing, a venue that has held their sectional for the past decade. The team shot 382, only one shot worse than their sectional score from the end of last year, proving that they have stayed prepared during the offseason.
