Track and Boys Tennis
Specific tryout schedule for baseball, softball, and lacrosse will be messaged out the send week of February.
Why does the tryout schedule come out so late?
Due to the lack of gym space at Big Walnut High School and trying to fit 18 teams into 1.5 gyms we have to wait for the boy’s and girl’s basketball tournament schedule to be announced as they will have will have the first choice of gym time. Typically, we produce an A and B schedule due to the uncertainty of the basketball schedule.
