Madison County golf teams play on

By Chris Miles -

The regular seasons for high school boys and girls soccer and volleyball teams get started Saturday, the first regular Friday night football contests happen less than a week later.

But until those dates get here, the high school boys and girls golf and girls tennis seasons continue to be the only meaningful games being played.
