School started officially in Floyd County Tuesday but the high school’s golf team is already several games into the season and played at Great Oaks Country Club the afternoon of opening day for classes.
For the golfers, the season opened last week at Draper, followed by a home game the next day, and then at London Downs on Monday and back home against Patrick Henry and Galax Tuesday.
Volleyball scrimmages are scheduled at FCHS for Thursday and football has a scrimmage Friday at home against Cave Spring.
Varsity football is at home against Hillsville on Friday, August 28. While most students are hitting the books, athletes are also hitting golf balls, volleyballs and football blockers.
