The summer is winding down, and for athletes that means one thing—fall sports.
The start of the fall season is nearly upon us, with tryouts for South River Hich sports starting on Saturday.
South River Athletics Director Dave Klingel said it's an exciting time for students in the area that's so dedicated to sports.
"It's always exciting, going back to school and getting back into the flow of things. Our coaches are ecstatic about the kids coming back and the new kids stepping up," Klingel said.
Klingel said hundreds of athletes are expected to arrive at South River for tryouts. The sports include golf, football, cheerleading, volleyball, boys and girls soccer, cross country, field hockey, and unified tennis.
The South River campus will soon be busy with warm-up drills, practice games, intense fitness training and a lot of very competitive and anxious athletes.
Here's a complete rundown of sports and their tryout times, courtesy of the South River Athletics website.
