Although the weather is still balmy, the fall is fast approaching and local prep athletes are well aware of it.
The start of the fall 2013 season at Los Alamos High School is ramping up with the first contests of the scholastic year now less than a calendar month away.
Preparations for the 2013 fall season for most athletics at Los Alamos began right at the start of summer vacation, or in some cases, before school got out in May.
However, the first official day of practice for high school football is Aug. 5, as set by the New Mexico Activities Association, the governing body of most interscholastic athletics. The other prep sports officially begin Aug. 12.
As is the case most years, the Hilltopper girls soccer team will be the first to open its season. Los Alamos will take on longtime foe Farmington Aug. 24 at Sullivan Field.
Hilltopper head coach Jiri Kubicek, despite being one of the longest tenured head coaches in the history of the school, said it’s sometimes tough to predict exactly what spot the team will be starting from.
“Hopefully, we don’t come in totally out of shape,” he said. “We have our first game two weeks after we start practicing. Hopefully nobody gets hurt when we get into practice. We’ll be OK.”
