Spring sports have returned to Summers County for the 2022 season. Summers County’s baseball and track & field teams have been busy preparing for the new season. Some changes have taken place for both teams since their 2021 season.
The Bobcats have a new assistant baseball coach and head track coach. Stan Unroe, who also serves as a Community in Schools Site Facilitator at the Summers County Comprehensive 6-12 High School, is Summers County’s new assistant baseball coach. Hope Cooper has stepped up from assistant coach to head coach for Summers County’s track & field team.
With a new season, some changes also come within the lineups. The Bobcat Baseball team lost five great seniors in Levi Jones, Logan Fox, Will Taylor, Gracin Price, and Daniel Mansfield at the conclusion of the 2021 season. The Bobcat Track & Field team lost seven seniors, Megan Cooper, Madoc Lathroum, Baylee Bentley, Ian Gardner, Hunter Thomas, Landon Richmond, and Riley Richmond. Of those seven, three have continued track & field while completing post-secondary education. Lathroum, Bentley, and Gardner are running track at Concord University.
The baseball team only has six players returning from last year. Seniors Sam Whittaker and TJ Gill; Juniors Peyton Miller and Devin Mansfield; Sophomores Brandan Isaac and Ben Lane.
