It has been a busy few weeks here in Sulphur Springs for Wildcats and Lady Cats sports.
Several teams have already had their youth camps; volleyball, girls basketball, softball, baseball, tennis and boys basketball, which took place last week at the SSHS Main Gym.
Not only that, but several programs finished the Edge last week.
Football, cross country, and both boys and girls soccer concluded their final week of the summer strength and conditioning program on Thursday.
With the Edge drawing to a close, it means summer is quickly approaching its end, with season schedules soon to be released.
The first team to release their schedule was Coach Bailey Dorner’s Lady Cats, who released the volleyball schedule to KSST early last week.
Coach Dorner’s squad finished their six week run of the Edge last Thursday, July 8. Women’s basketball also concluded their summer strength and conditioning program last week after beginning on June 7.
That leaves just basketball and team tennis, coached by Tony Martinez, who wrap up their summer strength and conditioning programs on July 22 and 25, respectively.
New Wildcats Basketball coach Brandon Shaver has kept busy the last two months since he was introduced as head coach in mid-May.
Not only has he ran the Edge Monday-Thursday from June 22 until now, he also had his first opportunity to coach a youth basketball camp here in Sulphur Springs.
Coach Shaver said things like SSISD’s youth camps can be huge for the community, and several coaches have seen the benefits of winning and what it can bring to younger generations.
The youth basketball camp concluded Thursday, July 15.
With so many teams having wrapped up the Edge, and their corresponding youth camps, those same squads can now take a bit of a breather before shifting their focus to gearing up for the season.
Cross country and volleyball both hit the ground running in August, with football in the same camp. The three teams are set for their first events as early as the first week of August.
