Athletics: Area teams back in action

A special time of year for students and athletes began earlier this week: high school athletics.

Even though it may have been a bit too hot on Monday and Tuesday, soccer teams took to the fields and volleyball teams hit the courts. Swimming and tennis also will be getting under way.

But on Friday, football is back — right here in Chautauqua County. Today, our newspaper includes an in-depth look at the teams and players in our area. We celebrate their achievements on the field and in the classrooms.

Get up and cheer! Our local athletes are in the spotlight.
