The Edge conditioning program drew pretty good numbers Monday morning considering it was the day before the fourth of July holiday. Close to 90 athletes attended The Edge for high school students and another 25 showed up for The Edge for middle school athletes. Wildcats Football Coach and Athletic Director Greg Owens said he was very pleased with the turnout. He did note that turnout was light for girls.
Coach Owens said it was pretty good for freshmen boys and really good for older boys. He said some kids are on vacations. This week marks the final week for The Edge for middle school students on Thursday. This week, the fourth of The Edge conditioning program, also marks the end of phase one of The Edge for high school students on Thursday.
After a two week hiatus, The Edge phase two for high schoolers only will gear up on July 24 and will run Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. through August 3. For those athletes hoping to continue working out during the hiatus, Coach Owens said the weight room and the indoor facility would be open at specific times during the two week break. He’s hoping athletes will challenge each other to get in some work during the break.
Coach Owens said athletes attending The Edge are getting better, are starting to get into shape and are looking good in the weight room.
