Moffat County fall sports starting practices

Moffat County High School’s fall sports will soon go into full swing.

The first official day of practices for football, volleyball, cross country, boys soccer and cheerleading will be this Monday at MCHS, 900 Finley Lane.

After preparing much of the summer with optional events, teams will be increasing their intensity as two-a-days, camps and more will get athletes in shape for the coming seasons.

The MCHS boys golf team first began practicing Aug. 7 and will attend its first tournaments in the coming week, spending this Monday at Gypsum Creek hosted by Eagle Valley and Tuesday at EagleVail hosted by Battle Mountain. Moffat County golf’s home tourney will be Aug. 23 at Yampa Valley Golf Course.

Most teams will dive into competition before school begins, as volleyball hosts Steamboat Springs Aug. 24, football brings in Rawlins, Wyoming, Aug. 25 and cross country runs at Cheyenne Mountain Aug. 26.
