  • Another season just around the corner

    It seems almost impossible that the high school fall sports season is almost underway, but high school teams across the county started practices this week in preparation for the 2016 season.

    For many of the coaches of the local football, soccer, volleyball, golf and cross country teams, it is a time of optimism, anticipation, preparation, anxiety and questions.
