CUMBY — The work is being done now to lay the foundation for the upcoming athletic year in Cumby.
Practices begin for cross county, football and volleyball on Monday.
In a recent workout coach Clay Hodges was supervising the volunteer practice in the weight room.
Hodges said the athletes have been working out an average of three times a week for at least two hours.
Hodges said attendance has been good with the athletes showing the dedication to improve and get stronger.
Many days the workouts are managed by a phone app called sportslab.
During each workout the athletes exercised, lifted weights and also ran specific distances around the school to help their endurance.
