As the school year comes closer to an end, Kadet spring sports still have a lot to fight for. This is the last sports season for the school year, and our Kadet community hopes to see some success in the sports of Boys Swim, Boys Baseball, Girls Golf, Girls Tennis, Girls Soccer, Boys and Girls Lacrosse, and Track and Field. Here is an overview of the seasons so far.

Boys’ Swim

Every year our boys swim team sends multiple swimmers to the state championships, and this year is no different. Many swimmers have already qualified for state like Jacob Beinecke and Griffin Ayotte. Junior Griffin Ayotte has been a contender at state for the last 2 years, and this year he will look to make a push for a state championship. So far this season the boys record is 1-2. “The team is getting stronger and stronger every day, and I think when state rolls around we will have a great shot at going far” says senior swimmer Ahyo Falick. “I think we can turn some heads.”

Boys’ Lacrosse

After a semi-final trip in playoffs two years ago, the boys look to return to their peak form this year as the season begins. Many players, including Jonathan Flat, JD Walton, and Carter Rodny were on that semi-final team, and they hope this season can have a similar outcome. Although their record is not what they want it to be at the moment (3-5), senior JD Walton spoke on how he believes this season can be turned around. “We have all the pieces that we need, and when they come together perfectly we have the chance to make a deep playoff run.”

Girls’ Lacrosse

The girls have enjoyed many deep playoff trips in recent years, and with the talent on this roster they have the chance to make a playoff run once again. With a record of 5-3, the season has started off decently, but the girls are not satisfied yet. “There are times where we look really good, and there are times where we don’t look like we have the chemistry we need,” says senior Sam Valtin. As the season continues, they will look to tighten things up in defense and start firing on all cylinders on the offensive side.

Track and Field

With the state championships closely approaching, the track and field team will look to send as many athletes as they can to these competitions. In the field side, thrower Rylie Oliviere looks like one of Air Academy’s best chances at a state championship. “I really hope I will be able to make it to state and represent my school well, and throwing is my dream event,” said Oliviere. Sophomore long-runner Tatum Miller will also be a force to recon with in the track side of these games.


The baseball team made a deep run last year, and with a very strong lineup this year they will look to return to their form from last season. Senior Micah Bregard will hope to keep his ERA low and his win count high, and the junior class with Ethan Yanez, Bo Powers, and Grant Shandy will continue to put runs on the board.

Girls’ Tennis

As the girls hit the tennis courts for another season, the team is looking just as strong as ever. Junior Cori Campbell and senior Ally Reeder will look to make state runs this season, and hopefully fellow senior Grace Ensor will make a run as well.

Girls’ Golf

The girls are looking to be hitting long drives and finishing their puts to make a run in the state tournament. Seniors Paige Langum and Taylor Martinez lead the senior class and will hope to make the state score cutoff and give state a shot.


As you can see, our spring sport athletes are ready and willing to do anything they can to take their teams as far as possible into the post season. Come out and support your fellow Kadets as they compete for their school and fans!
