The 2009 spring sports season featured the old and the new.
While many new faces had their moment in the spotlight, perennial champions once again did their thing and after a warm start, Mother Nature delivered a rainy payback in spades.
Ultimately, the lingering moments from the past two months will be the transcendent effort and triumph of local athletes as they once more gave us plenty to cheer.
Here’s one final look back at the spring of 2009 before we (hopefully) turn our attention to summer.
