Wolves, Lady Wolves keep working during summer

Summer workouts will start for the Dalhart High Golden Wolves on Monday June 5. Athletes will have the chance to work on strength and conditioning four days a week for most of the summer, until two-aday practices begin in August.

The boys will have workouts Monday- Thursday from 7:30- 9:30 a.m. Those who will be in seventh or eighth grade in the fall will work out at the junior high, while boys who will be in high school in the fall will work out at the high school. There won’t be workouts from July 3-6, and there will just be an open weight room from July 24- 27, but otherwise there will be workouts every Monday-Thursday.

The workouts are voluntary, but there is an incentive for the boys to attend as many workouts as possible. The boys will have to complete a fitness test during two-aday football practices beginning July 31. The test will consist of 34 sprints of 100 yards each; however, athletes will be able to deduct one sprint for each summer workout they attend. So if an athlete attends all 28 potential workouts, that athlete will only have to do six sprints instead of 34. Attending summer camps will also count as a credit towards a fitness test. Players will have to complete the fitness test before being allowed to practice in full pads on the first Friday of two-a-days.

The Dalhart Lady Wolves basketball team started attending a team camp in Canadian on Thursday June 1 and today is the final day of that camp. They will attend another team camp in Elk City, Oklahoma from Tuesday June 6 through Thursday June 8. The Lady Wolves are also taking part in the Dumas Summer League every Monday in June, with the players who show up being split into varsity and JV teams. That league will give the players to compete against players from several other schools, including Spearman, Dumas, Pampa, Stratford, Vega, Sunray and Guymon, Oklahoma. (These teams are required to have a parent or college student as the coach. Coach Anthony Catherall is only allowed to inform the players of the opportunity and to watch the games.)

The Dalhart cross country teams are also conducting voluntary workouts during the summer, even earlier in the morning than the other teams. They are doing summer running each Monday-Thursday. The runs start at 7 a.m. and begin at the tennis courts beside Dalhart Junior High. These runs were scheduled to start on Wednesday May 31, but that start had to be moved back due to the heavy rain that morning.

Anyone wanting more information about any of these workouts can contact any of the coaches or find more information on the Dalhart High School Facebook page or some of the teams’ Facebook pages.
