Spring Lake High School athletic director Cavin Mohrhardt said he’s on the verge of cancelling all sporting events before spring break.

“I’ve talked with quite a few other (athletic directors) who said they’re probably going to do the same thing,” Mohrhardt said. “The whole thing is, we’ve got piles of snow in front of our soccer field, in front of our track, our tennis courts. When that starts melting, we’re still going to have water all over.

“The soccer field will probably be bare by next week, but we can’t get anything out to mark it. We can’t put anything on there or it’s just going to get tore up.”
