Spring Sports success builds excitement at Southeast (gallery)

It’s been a busy week for Lancer Nation.

The Southeast school year ended Wednesday May 17. The following day four Lancers qualified for the State Track & Field Meet and the baseball team won the regional championship, qualifying for their first State tournament ever. A community pep rally was held on Sunday, family members decorated the bus the baseball team is taking to State on Tuesday, and then friends and family gathered once again Wednesday to cheer on the Lancer Baseball team as they left for State in Manhattan. (Track leaves Thursday at 3 p.m.)
