Local student athletes and coaches are using their summer to recharge for the upcoming school year. At Luxemburg-Casco student athletes, ranging between middle school to high school ages, are working in a speed and agility class to get better for the next season. LC Athletic Director Jenny Bandow says that with a break from the classroom, student athletes are using their time to get better speed and agility to improve for their respective teams. Bandow says that sports means a lot to the community and that it is great to see the students working to get better. She went on to explain that student athletes need a break from the classroom to reboot their brains, and sports are a great way to learn other life lessons and get the break needed.
Bandow is currently finishing up the rest of the necessary duties from the spring of 2019 season and then will begin the bigger projects for this upcoming fall. Student athletes will begin their five contact days in the upcoming weeks, with practices starting a few weeks after July 4.
