The six-week Edge conditioning program entered week number four Monday morning, July 1, at the Sulphur Springs High School Multipurpose Building.
Despite July 4 coming up Thursday, this will be a complete week of The Edge, including on Thursday the fourth. The Edge will wrap up at around noon Thursday and Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens notes that most 4th of July activities happen in the evening.
There will be an abbreviated two-day Edge next week. The UIL has declared July 9-10 as dead days and athletes are not allowed in athletic facilities on those days.
The last week of The Edge, during the week beginning July 15, will be another full week wrapping up on Thursday, July 18.
Coach Owens estimates that including athletes doing skill work in their sport as well as Edge athletes, about 200 boys and girls are involved at the school each day.
