Mason Ripley, one of Dakota’s lacrosse players, spoke along the same lines of a lost team bond. “It made me sad because the sports that I love were canceled for the season, and I didn’t get to play with my family,” Ripley (10) said.
“Recruiters can’t see what players are made of because they can’t even see the talent that is burning through the class of 2020,” Castañeda said.
Players have mixed feelings about the cancellations. “I do think it was right that sports were canceled in order to slow the spread of the virus so that hospitals do not exceed their maximum capacity, but I think it should only be temporary so that some of the seasons can still be played,” Persichetti said.
Tanner Fields, a sophomore lacrosse player agrees. “The cancellation of sports was the most responsible thing that could’ve happened,” Fields said. “Depending on the severity of the spread of covid 19, the season may end up being canceled altogether. However, I have great confidence that our seasons will simply be extended into summer months.”
Castañeda disagrees. “The cancellation of sports was wrong. We have had many cases of rough colds flying around. But because this virus is destroying the economy, and the economy is the one leg Trump has to stand on for this election, it would not surprise me that politics has something to do with this.”
