The 2020 high school spring sports season was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Dalton Gazette & Kidron News will be featuring Dalton High School spring athletes who recently graduated and did not get to represent the Dawgs in their final season. This week’s graduate is baseball pitcher Chance Green.
What was your reaction when you found out spring sports were canceled?
I was kind of in denial. I didn’t really think it was going to happen, but I was obviously disappointed that I didn’t get to have my senior season of baseball.
What were some of your goals for this season?
I wanted to compete for the league championship and have a nice run in the tournament.
What were you looking forward to most for your senior season?
To finally get to be the oldest person on the team and be a leader.
What do you miss most about baseball?
The competition and getting to hang out with all my friends on the team.
How have you kept in contact with your teammates?
I have been texting them. We have a group chat with the whole baseball team.
How have you been keeping active during your time at home?
I have been playing basketball with my family and some of my friends, too.
How have your adjusted to distance learning?
I didn’t like it, at first, but I got used to it. It’s just kind of nice to be able to do everything whenever I wanted to.
Are there any new hobbies or activities you have been keeping busy with?
I’ve been playing a lot of board games and playing a lot of guitar.
Have you learned anything new about yourself during this time?
No, not really.
What are your plans after graduation?
I think I am going to go to Wayne College.
