ROCKINGHAM — The first official day of the fall sports season is just days away, Monday, July 30, and all six of the Richmond Senior High School athletic teams that will be competing over the next few months are eager to get started. The Richmond football team will have the earliest start Monday morning, as head coach Bryan Till expects all players and coaches to be at the school by 7:30 a.m. “with all paperwork done and ready to go.” Michael Way, third-year head coach, will hold tryouts for the girls tennis squad from Monday to Thursday at 9 a.m. on the school’s tennis courts. Richmond’s volleyball team will host tryouts on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9-11 a.m. in the school’s gymnasium. Chris Larsen will also be making his debut this fall as the head coach of the Richmond boys soccer team, which is scheduled for three days of tryouts (Monday-Wednesday) from 3:30-5 p.m. on the soccer field. The boys and girls cross country teams have two scheduled days of tryouts next week, as they will be at Hinson Lake on Wednesday, Aug. 1, and then move over to the school’s track on Thursday, Aug. 2, at 7 p.m. The girls golf team’s tryout information will be released next month once school begins and newly named head coach Keith Parsons is able to host an interest meeting.
