Wildcats Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Greg Owens estimates that roughly 300 high school and middle school student athletes attended the first week of The Edge conditioning program. It started Monday (June 8). Football at the Multipurpose Building and Wildcats Basketball in the Main High School Gym had sessions Monday through Friday this week. Others sports had The Edge Monday through Thursday including Lady Cats Basketball and Lady Cats Volleyball in the two gyms at Middle School, Wildcats and Lady Cats Cross Country at Gerald Prim Stadium and co-ed Wildcats Tennis at the Wildcat Tennis Center. Coach Owens says from all reports, everything was great during the first week of The Edge. He says the kids were eager and excited and did a great job. He says he has received feedback from his assistant coaches about how much they liked the slower approach they must take because of restrictions due to coronavirus concerns. They say the result has been great for teaching purposes and may prove more beneficial in the long run. Still Coach Owens says he and his staff would like to be doing some team activities. He says perhaps they will be able to next month. He says distancing during The Edge has proved to be the biggest challenge. All athletes attending The Edge are getting their temperature checked daily. Coach Owens commended parents for doing a great job dropping off and picking up their athletes. He says things have been rolling along like clockwork. The Edge is expected to continue through the end of July.
