Whitesboro, S&S begin summer workouts
The Whitesboro Bearcats and S&S Rams both started up summer workouts on Monday.
The Bearcats are back on the field with sanitizer in hand. Student-athletes of all sports and ages came out on the first day. To accommodate with new distancing rules, most of the weight lifting was held outside, while a smaller number of athletes split off into the gym.
"It's a marathon, not a sprint right now," Whitesboro head coach Cody Fagan said. "Our end goal is to get our kids back in August, and play volleyball, run cross country, and play football. We want all that to happen, this is obviously an important piece of that. But the most important piece is to get back healthy and safe in August. We will creep that direction, and get them back into shape as we go."
The S&S Rams are also getting back to work. They started their strength and conditioning program on Monday. Josh Aleman and his team have a different look in year two under his direction. Coaches were wearing masks and social distancing is being enforced. Normally the athletes would be going full speed at this point but the Rams are taking it one step at a time.
"You're more excited to see them," S&S head coach Josh Aleman said. "We understand that three and a half months off, regardless of if they've done the workouts or not, it's going to take some time to get used to everything of off season and Summer program again."
