REGION — High school sports teams took the field for first time since the coronavirus pandemic shut down the end of the winter sports season in March on Monday as football practices across the state signaled the first sign that sports have returned.

Practices for the first week are limited to sessions consisting of conditioning, physical training and skill work with no other player equipment than helmets.
