Fall prep sports: Let the games begin!
August 20, 2012 by Chris Dunn
I’m pretty sure every fall sport had a scrimmage this past weekend, and begins this full season this week. So last week, my editor sent me hunting down some practices between assignments. Here’s what I found:

The teams will be announced on Wednesday evening, with the first scrimmages on Saturday. Monday, Aug. 13, 2012, marked the first day of fall sports practice for YAIAA schools.

The teams will be announced on Thursday or Friday, and will have their first scrimmage at Dover Area High School the following Monday.
Maybe it’s because it’s been so terribly long since I’ve been in school, but this summer really flew by. It feels like I just shot West York’s baseball championship game a few weeks ago, and I can’t believe we’re on the brink of football season. Suffice it to say, I’m keeping a bottle of Alleve in my camera bag… and will do my best to avoid further football injuries this year.
