After a summer too long for some and too short for others, high school athletes in and around Wilson County are now reporting for two-a-days. With the start of football, volleyball, cross-country, and tennis seasons right around the corner, it’s time to knock off the dust.

Falls City kicked things off a bit earlier than most, as the Beavers reported for their first practice shortly after midnight Aug. 4. The “Midnight Madness” practice is becoming a tradition for the Beavers, and is a fun way to get things started.

The football programs at Poth, Stockdale, Nixon-Smiley, La Vernia, and Floresville also got going Monday morning, though all programs must wait until Friday to strap on the pads for the first day.

Volleyball is on a much faster timetable, though, and the area’s six teams will cram a lot of action into a short period of time. The coaches must conduct conditioning, tryouts, and organized practices in the first few days of the week, as most begin scrimmaging this weekend. The first official games will be played next week.

While no cross-country meets are scheduled in the immediate future, these athletes are also starting their training this week. Laps around the track won’t cut it for these groups, and fans will spot them running all over the trails and streets of our towns.

East Central, Floresville, and La Vernia also compete in team tennis, and both teams will be working hard to improve on the success they enjoyed last season. Tournaments usually start right away, and these players won’t have a lot of time to prepare.

Watch for the annual Fall Sports Preview later this month to learn more about each of your favorite high school teams.
