New season, big expectation

Written by Ty Wunderl | Coming off of an extremely successful season in winter sports, CAC hopes to continue that success in the spring sports season as baseball, softball, soccer and track events begin. Varsity Baseball Coach Eric Hanson and Varsity Boys’ Soccer Coach Billy Sullivan look to blow the competition out of the water this spring season. 

“Our expectations are to win every game,” Hansen said. “We are creating a culture that I see having a strong effect on this program for years to come.” 

Coach Billy Sullivan shared the same winning culture mindset and hopes for that culture to lead his team through the 2023 soccer season. He spoke on how this culture impacted the soccer team. 

“At this point in the season, we do a much better job of possessing the ball and communicating than previous teams,” he said. “As we continue to grow closer together and get more game experience, I expect us to be one of the better teams in 3A.”

Soccer isn’t the only sport where expectations have been met and will continue to be exceeded. Coach Hansen said, “We have improved in every area from last year. Defensively there has been a drastic improvement, which is nice to see.” 

These words of praise hit home for the spring sports programs at CAC. Coming from the biggest critics of their respective programs(the head coaches), these encouraging words have the Mustang’s athletics community in a buzz. 

Behind the success of Mustangs athletics, is an equally electric fan base. On Wednesday, March 8, the secondary campus marked the official beginning of the spring sports season with the Spring Sports Pep Rally. A packed house, loud students, and a trademark Coach Sully rollercoaster all came together last week to create the perfect atmosphere welcome our final season of sports for the school year. The entire community, including the coaches, is looking forward to an extremely successful spring sports season. Go Mustangs!
