After some rain had come through the region on Wednesday evening and early Thursday morning, the humidity was just right for local prep soccer teams that continue to work toward the beginning of hopefully another great season of soccer.
Elizabethton head coach Bill McClay had his squad out on the turf of Citizens Bank Stadium during the late evening on Thursday working with his young squad on shots from within 20 yards as well as how to make proper passes and communication.
With the evening almost perfect, the Lady Cyclones continue to work back into shape after having missed quite a bit of time due to the recent COVID-19 virus.
Just like football, soccer and other sports do not know exactly what their season might look like but they realize the importance of digging in and getting as much work in as possible while also adhering to social distancing during their workouts.
Even though soccer differs from football, there still is a considerable amount of contact from time to time in defending on the field as well as handling of the soccer ball.
Hopefully, most athletes will know what their seasons hold in football, soccer, cross country, and golf before too long as schools are beginning to offer some foresight into what could be expected both in the classroom and athletics.
In the meantime, workouts will still be ongoing as teams do their best to prepare for the unknown but enjoy the fellowship of being back together as a unit.
All teams deserve to be recognized for following the guidelines they have been given so they continue their workout sessions.
