CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — For the past two weeks, area high school and middle schools have been holding their summer strength and conditioning workouts on campus.

But for the first time, CCISD schools were allowed to work indoors Monday.

And over at Miller High School, the Lady Bucs volleyball team took advantage of that opportunity.

After working out on the tennis courts, they were happy to finally be indoors.

The high school volleyball season starts the first week of August. And teams have a lot of catching up to do.

"It's important to be inside to get the girls touching the ball prior to tryouts,” Miller volleyball coach Taryn Usher said. “And myself being new at the school to get the program going.”

There’s no comparison in terms of work conditions, according to Miller volleyball player A’Mya Fontano said.

"Being inside is better because outside it's windy and no air conditioning and the balls are not flying everywhere,” she said.

Area schools can continue off-season conditioning workouts four days a week – Monday through Thursday -- leading up to the first day of school
