AHS softball team heads to spring training
space
Even if spring is in the air, temperatures and snow-covered area fields are still not conducive to softball, so the Antigo Red Robins have departed the northwoods, bound for a “spring training” of their own.

The Antigo varsity team, 13 strong along with four coaches departed Antigo High School Thursday afternoon, on its way to Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport where the group boarded a plane for Orlando, Fla.

The girls will be getting a fair amount of practice time in during the coming days at the Chain of Lakes complex in Titusville, Fla., and will play three official games against teams from Ohio.

Monday the Robins face Willougby at 12 p.m. and follow that up with a 2:30 p.m. game against Oak Harbor. Tuesday, Eastwood will be the opposition for a night contest at the facility.

While spring trips to Florida is a relatively common occurrence for a number of teams throughout the cold Midwest, this is the first time an Antigo team has made the trip.

“All the girls in the program do a fair amount of fundraising,” head coach Sandi Robrecht said. “I hope to make this trip something we do every three years.”

That time frame would likely give every group of graduating Antigo softball players an opportunity to make the trek to the sunshine state.

It won't be a strictly business trip, with the team staying on Cocoa Beach with some downtime to certainly enjoy the shoreline.

As far as the team itself, nine seniors return, all with varsity experience and expectations are high for this year's squad.

The team will return Wednesday.
