The Edge conditioning program plus skill work for Sulphur Springs girls soccer players began Wednesday morning. The girls, from entering 7th graders to entering 12th graders, worked out from 9 a.m. until 10:30 a.m on the warm artificial turf at Gerald Prim Stadium.
The Monday through Friday sessions are scheduled through the end of July with a few UIL mandated off days next month.
Lady Cats Soccer Coach Javier Aguayo, in his second year as head coach, said he was excited to see some new faces among the 30 attendees Wednesday. Included were 7 or 8 middle schoolers.
Coach Aguayo said he started the girls off with skill work, including getting touches on the ball to warm them up and get them into a rhythm, then, came agility and strength work and lots of running around the field.
Coach Aguayo said it felt good to get back with players especially after the Lady Cats season abruptly came to a halt due to a UIL suspension of athletic activities due to coronavirus concerns in March. He said the Lady Cats were left wondering how far they could have gone last season as their season ended with one district game and the playoffs still to play.
