A year ago, high school volleyball, cross country and swimming were the first sports to compete, thanks to the COVID-19 issues.
But now the roles are reversed a bit. Just over a week after Hurricane Ida, the rest of the LHSAA’s fall sports are off to a good start this week. Regular season volleyball action began on Tuesday.
The action is shifting into high gear this weekend with the Tara Classic volleyball tournament starting on Friday and the Episcopal Round Table Run and the first Capital City Swim League meeting scheduled for Saturday.
CLASSIC TARA: The matches start Friday at 4 p.m. in Tara. Teams ready to compete include host Tara as well as Belaire Istrouma, Liberty, McKinley, Scotlandville, Slaughter Community Charter, Iowa, Madison Prep, Northeast, Plaquemine, Walker and White Castle.
The game of pool continues at 8 a.m. on Saturday, with the final set at 4 p.m.
ROUND TABLE : The races begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday at Highland Road Park with the girls’ three-mile varsity race. About thirty schools are scheduled to compete.
The boys’ three-mile college run follows at 8:40 a.m. The junior boys / girls university race follows at 9:15 am.
CCSL: League fixtures will continue with the split boy / girl format used last year during the pandemic.
The boys meet-up starts at 8 a.m. at the Crawfish Aquatics pool followed by the girls meet-up at 11:30 a.m.
