Practice for fall high school sports in Floyd County is underway and school starts officially on Tuesday, August 12.
Football, volleyball and other sports are gearing up for returns on the field and in the gym.
The marching band will provide entertainment at halftime and provide music during the games and local fans will hope for a successful year in competition.
During budget debates earlier this year, some talk circulated on possible reductions in athletic competition but such discussion appears to have disappeared as the teams prepare for battle with longtime rivals and some new opponents as the Virginia High School league continues to change and refine the various conferences and regions throughout the Old Dominion.
I’ll be on the sidelines shooting photos and some video for The Floyd Press and others.
The games are about to begin. See you there.
