Southeast opens next week: some fields ready; other venues will be used by some teams

When official practices begin next week for fall high school sports, a couple of Southeast Alamance teams will practice at the new campus.

The school is opening for operation Monday with summer school classes as well.
The football and boys’ soccer teams will meet on practice fields on the campus, athletics director B.J. Condron said. Those workouts begin Monday.

The volleyball team was to begin practices at the new school’s gym, but those will be delayed for a week. Instead, the team will train at Hawfields Middle School.

Condron said the fixtures in the gym floor used to secure poles for the volleyball net are being installed this week. The recommendation is to stay off the court for a week after that process.

A worker drills holes in the gym floor at Southeast High School Wednesday morning in order to secure poles for the volleyball net.

“We’re learning new stuff every day,” Condron said Wednesday.

Condron said there’s a designated practice field beyond the baseball and softball fields on the campus. There also are other outdoor spaces that can be used.

Southeast’s cross country teams will gather at Hawfields Middle School for initial workouts.

As Alamance-Burlington School System athletics director George Robinson was aware when designs for the campus layout were revealed, there isn’t a tennis facility at the high school. The Stallions will use courts at the Mebane Recreation and Parks Department for practices and matches.

Southeast golf teams will have The Challenge Golf Club in Graham as their home venue. The first practice for the girls, who play a fall season, will be at I-85 Golf.
