It has been a long five months without sports for the county’s high school student-athletes. Since the University Interscholastic League (UIL) suspended competition and activities on March 13, there has been a lengthy, dry stretch without these students seeing their coaches, friends and teammates.

Monday marked the first time in 143 days for high school athletes to participate in sanctioned UIL practices. And they could not have asked for better conditions. The Eagles, Wildcats and Trojans practiced in breezy, 79 degree weather beginning at 7 a.m. while the Lady Eagles, Lady Cats and Trojanettes hit the hardwood.
