The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

-A A +A
By Ryan Butler

I have fiercely defended October as the best month in sports for a long time. The World Series. Pivotal mid-season football games in high school and college. The NFL gets into full swing. Huge chase races in NASCAR. The NBA and NHL seasons begin.

But this April is beginning to change my mind.

A classic win for American Bubba Watson at the Masters. A typically awesome NCAA basketball Final Four. An exciting beginning to the MLB season. A great start to the 2012 NASCAR season. NHL playoffs have begun with NBA about to follow. But the most exciting sports have been here in Levy County.

An emotional mercy-rule win for the CHS softball team on senior night capped off a soap opera of a season. After a season where their clean-up hitter quit midseason, its starting pitcher was injured in a car accident and another starter struggled with injuries for the whole second half, the Indians host the district 1A-7 championship this week. 

Even with all the drama, the team has positioned itself for a birth in regions. The No. 3 seed needs only two wins to advance to the next round and put a positive note on one of the team’s most difficult seasons.
