AURORA — The 2017-18 season is upon us.

Boys golf practice opens on Monday, officially signaling the start of the school year, and the CHSAA calendar. As is the case every year, it is the first sport to begin practice, exactly a week prior to the rest. Its first scrimmages and contests can begin on Thursday.

It also has the first championship: Boys golf’s state meets are Oct. 2-3 this fall.

All other fall sports begin practice on Aug. 14, with slightly varied dates for scrimmages and contests.

This marks the 97th year of activities in CHSAA’s history.

Defending champions in each sport can be found in the Championship Database.
