The slow summer period is nearly over.
It's been nearly two months since a Kentucky athlete has competed in an NCAA event, but the wait for the 2011-12 athletics season is almost complete. Beginning this week, student-athletes for several sports will begin to report for practices for their respective seasons.
The women's soccer is scheduled to report Tuesday, followed by the football team on Thursday, the volleyball team on Aug. 8 and the men's soccer team on Aug. 9. The football team will also have its annual media day on Friday (closed to the public) and fan day on Saturday, which you can read more about here.
Women's soccer will officially kick off the 2011-12 athletics season on Aug. 19 at Oakland. The first home event of the season will be a women's soccer match against Eastern Kentucky on Aug. 23.
