The 2022-23 high school sports season got underway across the state Monday with the start of official practices, including on football fields across the NewsTribune area. Look for season previews on all of our teams in the weeks ahead, and until then check out these photos from practices at La Salle-Peru and St. Bede.

The Bureau Valley, Mendota and St. Bede football teams lost a game when Riverdale announced it wouldn't field a varsity football team this fall. Bureau Valley is looking for a Week 1 opponent, while Mendota and St. Bede are unsure what they'll do with the open date.
