SETTINGS READY Whether it's pre-game or pre-season, preparation is an integral part of any sport. Ames High athletes know what getting ready is all about. Many coaches say state champions are made in the off-season. Almost any athlete you talk to will tell you he she has worked during the summer to prepare for his her sport. ‘‘Working out in the summer gives you a head start on everyone else once the season starts,” said senior Jeff Weigle. Some competitors get this ‘‘head start’’ by going out for other sports. ''| encourage athletes to go out for other sports during their so called off-season,’’ said Phil Johnson. ''It is to his her advantage to do so because it keeps them in shape and keeps their competitive spirit alive,” added Johnson. Warm-ups are different in content, but Right: PREPARATION.

Joe Stohlmeyer offered his analysis, ''It'S supposed to be a time to warm-up, but it's generally a hot dog session. The crowd really helps with that.'' Some people say that warm-ups are not necessary, however, Paige Cox disagrees. ‘‘You have to do them. ۰ ups help you get oxygen to the muscles,’’ she added. When it comes right down to it, both warm-ups and training have one idea in common; to be at your very best from the start. Months of training can be rewarded through that little extra energy you have left when the others are exhausted. The few minutes you spend warming-up can mean the difference between winning and losing. You have to be ready. i d ` + , - C cy MN.
