About 150 Athletes Show up For First Day of The Edge

Wildcats Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Greg Owens said it was good to see Wildcats and Lady Cats’ athletes Monday morning, June 10, at the first session of The Edge conditioning program for this summer.

The Edge for high school and middle school athletes got under way Monday and will run Mondays through Thursdays through July 18. The Edge runs from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. for high school athletes and from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. for middle school athletes and is followed by a half hour of skill work for both groups.

The extra skill work is a new rule from the UIL. Coach Owens estimated that there were around 150 athletes who attended the first day of The Edge.

He said for some who have not been doing much it was a shock to their system but he added they would work through it. Coach Owens said the athletes would be sore this week.

He said he told the attendees to be sure and eat something before they arrive and eat something afterward. Coach Owens said it is very important for the athletes to drink plenty of water. He suggested a gallon a day. The athlete’s weight is monitored daily to see if they are replacing fluid that they are sweating out.

Coach Owens said the weather was delightful Monday although he said he expects it to get much hotter rapidly. He said the kids that stick with The Edge over six weeks will end up in the best shape of their lives. Coach Owens tells them that whatever they put into The Edge will determine what they get out of it.
