Delayed start to season finally approaching

While local high school fall sports teams have had a few extra months of practice this year compared to last season (Galt High School football is shown above during a workout in August 2019), the 2020 season is finally on the horizon, with teams preparing for the season that has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first official game is set to take place in a little over two months with Liberty Ranch volleyball kicking off the year with the Foundation Game against Ripon on Dec. 28. Shortly thereafter, the football season for both Liberty Ranch and Galt begins early January 2021; the Hawks are set to take on Bret Harte on the road Jan. 8 while Warriors travel to Woodland Christian the same night. Season previews will be featured on fall teams over the next few weeks, taking a look at teams’ progress as they wait over four months past the usual start date for the start of their season.
