    Fall Sports teams prepare for the next season

    most viewed featThe school year ending and the heat rolling in means only one thing to athletes: summer workouts. Football, Men’s Soccer, Volleyball, Tennis, Cross Country and Softball have a season to prepare for. Not only does the fall sports teams prepare, but so do the winter teams. It’s a big deal for these athletes to not only look their best for summer, but also gain skills that will help in them in their season. Every sport usually has a camp during the summer to keep the skills fresh and to get the athletes pumped. The camps usually cost and help pay for expenses of the season, but the everyday workouts are free.

    “I love our workouts, because it helps us all get bigger and better before the season.  I think it also helps us get pumped for the season.” said Junior Corey Bruns. Bruns plays offensive and defensive line for the Knights Football team. With not winning one game last year, the team has high hopes for the season. “I think we should be better this year than last.  We definitely left ourselves some room for improvement and I am looking forward to putting in some work this year.  I would like to go out with a winning record but we will see how it goes”, said Bruns.”I know we’re going to miss our seniors, but hopefully the underclassmen will step into their shoes and help the team.”

    The Girl’s Volleyball team is also very excited about their season, with having so many returning members and only losing two of their seniors. The girls have workouts 3 times a week.  They also go to a Rolla college summer camp, where they work drills, conditioning, and participate in tournaments around the state to face off against other high schools before the season starts.

    “I think the Rolla tournament is a really good thing for our program.  We [the girls] all enjoy it, and we learn a lot from it.  It helps get us back into volleyball mode for the upcoming season.  I am especially looking forward to this year, because we lost only two seniors so theres a lot of us coming back with experience already.”
