As the temperatures climbed into the upper 80s Tuesday, Aug. 3, Superior High School football players were out on the field for their first day of official practice.

The Spartans played a shortened alternate season in the spring, so they've only been off the field for a few months.

They're set to travel to Rice Lake for a scrimmage on Aug. 13, and will host Ellsworth Aug. 20 to open their season.
