     Spring Sports are in full swing at Bethel High School. You will notice the fields and courts are full every day after school with student-athletes who are eager to play since they did not get a spring season last year. 

     Many upperclassmen are returning to their spring sports for the first time in two years. Captain of the girls tennis team, Livia Oprea ‘21, is very excited to be back on the court this year in the #1 singles spot. 

     “We worked hard this season to create bonds with the girls. I am thankful for the past four years  I’ve spent on the team. This season was more special than any other. I work with the kindest and funniest group of girls and I’m so grateful to have them by my side for my senior year,” Oprea said. 

     BHS offers baseball, softball, girls and boys lacrosse, girls and boys tennis, golf, as well as girls and boys track and field in the spring semester. 

     During this spring season, the spectator rules have changed from previous years. Currently, spectators are allowed at all sporting events and there is no limit on the number of spectators. Spectators must wear masks and social distance. Athletes are allowed to remove their masks for competition. According to the CIAC, state tournaments and championship events will be held this spring.  

Be sure to support Bethel’s spring sports athletes.
