School is officially back in session and that means so are sports! The NCTV17 sports crew is busy making preparations for the return of “Naperville Sports Weekly,” which kicks off season seven at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 1.
This fast-paced half-hour show anchored by Alex Symonds brings viewers the highlights, interviews and scores from all the boys and girls varsity sports across the six Naperville-area high schools.
In this season’s first episode, we’ll take a look at the McGonagle Tournament, featuring golfers from all area high schools.
We’ll head to the soccer field at both Metea and Waubonsie Valley, the tennis court at Naperville Central, and back to the green for both boys and girls golf.
Friday, Aug. 30, we go under the lights for the first football matchups of the year. This week we’ll see Benet Academy face off against Downer Grove South; Metea Valley take on Plainfield East; Waubonsie Valley against Naperville Central; and Naperville North play Neuqua Valley.
This season you’ll see a few new faces on the sidelines as we welcome more cameramen to our team. Make sure you say hi to all of our sports staff!
A new episode of Naperville Sport Weekly Plus is also airing. We talk to the new athletic directors for both Metea Valley and Waubonsie Valley high schools.
Visit NCTV17.com for additional air times for both shows.
