Fall sports teams in full swing at summer workouts
Teams are gearing up for the upcoming fall season.

There are many sports throughout the year and we have a certain time we can practice for them, but the sports that start right at the beginning of the year don’t have as long of practice time. The sports that do summer workouts are volleyball both JV and varsity, and football JV and varsity.
The varsity football players start workouts at 6:30 am and go for two hours. They start out in the weight room, most days, and then go out to the field. Other days they just go straight to the field.
“Football is very hard on the body, and we have the guys conditioning, and getting ready for the season," said Head Coach Tim Trokey.
Football also has some good parts to it. Brannon Litz said he favorite part about the summer workouts are being with the team.
Volleyball is also doing the summer workouts. They have practice starting at 9 and ending at 11. They work in the small gym at all times. This is so they can have their volleyball net up always. This sport is definitely not a one man sport.
“The summer workouts help me stay in shape and they keep me busy during summer," Brooklynne Hill said. "Our coach pushes us and helps us become better players.”
The summer Workouts are a great way to get ready for the up incoming sports.
