Practice for high school fall sports is in full swing, and now it is time for middle school to get geared up.

On Monday, Aug. 8, middle school football players will take the field for their first evening of practice, under the direction of head coach Rex Yoak once again. He lost a tight knit group of eighth grade players last season, but is excited to see the new talent from the sixth grade class. These are the young athletes that soon will be stepping up to lead the high school team.

The following Monday, head middle school volleyball coach Angie Hersman will return to take the court with her girls. She lost some good players last year, who will hopefully benefit the high school team. She has several returning players ready to represent CMS, along with incoming sixth graders.

Head middle school cheerleading coach Lynn Lane returns. She lost only two girls and is hoping for a powerful squad of motivated and high-spirited athletes to lead the fans.

Some of the middle school runners will join the high school cross country team and head coach Melinda Fitzwater.

Calhoun County offers numerous opportunities, not only for students to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities, but also for community and family members to enjoy the spectacle of sports and sportsmanship, which our athletes are continually complimented on as we travel around the state.

We cannot forget that sports do not begin in middle school. If you have the chance, come out and see the youth league football and cheerleaders. They are a joy to watch.

“There’s nothing to do in Calhoun County.” I don’t think so.
