Monday marked the first time in which North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) sanctioned programs could hold practice for the 2022 fall sports season.
Midway and Harnett Central volleyball were among the Record coverage area teams that took advantage of the official 2022-23 kickoff, hosting their annual tryout sessions.
The Lady Raiders also used the practice time to prepare for an inaugural blue-white scrimmage Friday night, in which current varsity players battle former Midway stars from past teams. First serve is set for 7 p.m., with no admissions fee accompanying the free event.
Other fall sports starting this week include football, boys soccer, cross country, girls golf and tennis.
