Practice always makes perfect
While the school year started for most students last Wednesday, high school athletes started working hard a few days earlier.
Practices for high school athletics started Monday of last week, with dozens of students getting a chance to work off the rust developed over a long summer vacation.
While practices are needed to improve skills and get more experience, they're also needed to make sure students are eligible for competition.
According to the Wyoming High School Activities Association, athletes need to complete at least nine days of practice before becoming eligible for competition.
