Today, Thursday August 29, 2013 is the day. The first day of sports for Boaz High School. The varsity volleyball team opens up at Southside, and the football team plays at home tonight vs. Guntersville. The excitement is in the air as the students and student athletes anticipate that moment when they finally take the field. This is where all the hard work pays off. For some of them, it will be their ‘last’ first game. For my daughter Sylvie, it will be her ‘first’ first game as she takes the court with the Boaz Middle School 7th grade team. I myself am looking forward to another great year serving as school photographer and covering the games. I wish them all the best. Cheer, Play, and Perform your hearts out kids. But most of all, enjoy the moment. GO BOAZ!
