Fall sports are off and running

THE OUTLOOK: DAVID BALL - Barlow High football players carry buckets of water the width of the field in a conditioning drill. This week marked the official start to the prep fall sports season with athletes returning to campus for everything from volleyball and soccer to football and cross country.

Temperatures soared into the 90s, keeping coaches aware of the heat index. The OSAA also has limits on the number of Daily Doubles sessions that schools can have during a given season. The first official contest date for fall sports is Thursday, Aug. 25, with most football teams taking part in jamborees on Friday, Aug. 26.
