Gould student athletes turn their attention to spring sports long before the snow begins to melt and the grass begins to reappear. In fact, it’s not uncommon to find groups of friends in the Farnsworth Field House playing catch, in the batting cage, spinning, shooting on goal, or in one of the two indoor skateparks.
Of course once spring has sprung, those athletes are the first ones back on the Lacrosse turf, baseball and softball diamonds, roads of Western Maine, at the outdoor skatepark–back on their metaphorical – and in some cases literal – horse.
Gould Huskies love a good competition, but we love being with our favorite team members and coaches more.
