Muddy fields creating a nightmare for spring sports


So what can schools do in the meantime? Unfortunately, not much. Newburyport athletic director Bob Clarke said when it comes to early spring weather, the only thing you can really do is wait for the fields to dry up. But as inconvenient as waiting can be, it would be worse to go out too early and either tear up the field for the season or risk someone getting hurt.

“It’s been tough, but hopefully we’ll have some sun tomorrow and no rain for a couple of weeks,” Clarke said, adding that several of his fields appear to have turned the corner and should be ready to play on soon. “I think we’ve just about weathered the storm.”
