SALYERSVILLE — Magoffin County is preparing for the 2024 high school volleyball season.

Under the direction of Coach Haley Miller, Magoffin County held open gym sessions Tuesday, June 18 and Wednesday, June 19.

Magoffin County is slated to hold tryouts from 10 a.m.-noon on Thursday, June 20.

Showing improvement, Magoffin County compiled a 5-19 record in the 2023 high school volleyball season.

The Hornets will take the court for a season opener in August.

Magoffin County student-athletes and others across the state will be sidelined June 25-July 9 via the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Dead Period.

The Dead Period was adopted 20-plus years ago by member schools in response to concerns about year-round play and practice and parental and coaching desire for some down time from interscholastic play. Member schools adopted the period of June 25-July 9 as a time of inactivity, which followed the pattern of the historic idling of southern textile mills and this time allows administrators, coaches, student-athletes and their families a time where they are not committed to school play.

Magoffin County will open preseason practice in July, following the conclusion of the KHSAA Dead Period.
