It might be a bit hard to believe, but Londonderry High School’s fall sports teams have already gotten their 2017 tryouts rolling this week, taking the first steps toward getting the 2017-18 athletic year underway.
The LHS football and spirit programs began selecting and preparing their athletes for competition this Wednesday, Aug. 9, after Londonderry Times press time. And the next Londonderry teams which will begin their tryout sessions will do so next Monday, Aug. 14, when the girls’ volleyball, girls’ and boys’ soccer, boys’ and girls’ cross-country, and field hockey crews will get rolling.
The girls’ volleyball players will be in the Londonderry High gym for two sessions that day, with the first running from 8-10 a.m. and the second going from 7-9 that evening.
Coach Derek Dane’s girls’ soccer players will hold their first practice sessions on their practice field on Aug. 14 from 7 to 9 a.m. in the morning, and then meet up again from 2 to 4 p.m. that afternoon.
The boys’ soccer players will hold their initial tryouts at Panther Park from 8-10 that morning, and then reconvene from 4-6 that afternoon.
All of the boys’ and girls’ cross-country athletes will gather on the Londonderry High track on the morning of the Aug. 14 at 8 a.m., and the Lady Lancer field hockey players will have one session – on their home field – from 7 to 10 a.m. that morning.
The LHS golfers will have their initial tryout session at the Hidden Creek Country Club in Litchfield on the morning of Thursday, Aug. 15 at 8 a.m., and the school’s unified soccer contingent won’t gather until the afternoon of Wednesday, Sept. 6, when that group connects in the school gym at 2:15 and practices until 3:30.
