The sign is now printed and ready to be put into proper place. It will be on display as early as possible in the some particular cases as well.

Monday marks the first official play date allowable for the majority of the state’s high school fall sports programs. Several athletic teams are among the area’s limited number of ones scheduled to engage in season-opening play.

From Lake Norman, the boys soccer squad will be among the first to take to the field. The Wildcats will kick off their season with a road trip to take on Charlotte Myers Park Monday evening. It will account for the first of three straight away appearances on tap for Lake Norman before making its initial homefield showing of the season later this month.

From Pine Lake Prep’s sports camp, the school’s volleyball crew will break ground on another front also Monday evening. The Pride will be the area’s first entry to make an at-home appearance when also making it season debut against Christ The King. Monday’s outings will feature action on the part of both the varsity and junior varsity squad.

Just one day later, additional local teams will also be jumping feet-first into the mix as well.

Mooresville High School’s volleyball team will make both its regular-season and home court debut hosting Jay M. Robinson Tuesday in the school’s gym. It will be the first of back-to-back homecourt outings on the part of the Blue Devils to fill their full first week’s schedule. MHS will also return to its gym against Bandys Thursday afternoon.

Pine Lake Prep’s boys soccer team will engage in the first of consecutive-night road matches when pulling up its stops at North Mecklenburg Tuesday night. The Pride will then turn right around one evening later, traveling just across town to take on the Mooresville High School soccer team Wednesday.

The week also brings with its season-opening play in other sports as well. Openers in girls tennis, girls golf, girls and boys cross country and football will also be held by the end of the week.
