A sure sign of spring is the emergence of athletes from their gymnasiums onto the practice fields. In top photo, members of the Mathews High School varsity baseball team take the field on Monday afternoon in the Blue Devils’ season opener. Mathews dropped that contest to the visiting Essex Trojans, 12-1. Below that, members of Gus Morande’s Gloucester baseball team get in some batting practice. GHS has its home opener on Friday at 4:30 p.m. against Heritage. Also on Monday, Gloucester and Mathews battled in girls’ tennis with the Lady Devils, winning 8-1. In the #2 seed match, Amy Collins of MHS, at left, defeated Gloucester’s Olivia Edwards, at right, 8-3. Spring sports schedules can be found this week in the print version of the paper.
