Coaches are trying fast to learn the new freshmen's names, returning athletes are getting the kinks out after a long summer and senior captains are coming into their own as leader.
Yesterday, Thursday, Aug. 22, Belmont High School open the fields and gyms for the start of the fall sports season.
it is a time for the coaches to begin evaluating the talent as long lines of students run through Belmont Center in these first days back on the playing field.
There is the hope that the new season and school year brings that the fall campaign will last well into October and maybe November for the teams and individuals. Nine Belmont sports teams, all with a clean slate, anticipate the best and are preparing to accomplish just that.
