In Whiteland Community High School, there can be many obstacles to overcome when it comes to sports. There could be a player out for the season, or everyone is trying to get ready for the next game. However, there’s also the obstacle of relationships.
Junior WCHS swimmer Victoria Petriskey explained how her relationship with Junior swimmer works around the swim season and their schedules.
“Since we are both in the same sport, we still see each other a lot. Obviously, we’re not always at the same thing,” Petriskey said. “At the same time, having the same sport as a passion helps us easily relate to the same things.”
Junior cheerleader Brooke Powers explained that her relationship with Junior Jace Carpenter works with their relationship.
“I am a cheerleader and I see him a lot at games. I go to his games and cheer him on.” Powers said. “We usually have practice around the same time so after we get out of practice we’ll hang out afterward.”
Powers explained how to get around the obstacles of dating while trying to work out schedules and seeing each other.
“While they’re in season, their top priority should be their sport, and I mean they should have time for you still. At the same time they should focus on what they are doing in their sport,” Powers said. “Don’t get too upset about it. It’s just a season and it will usually work itself out.”
