Van Zandt County volleyball teams returned to the court this week, beginning preparations for the 2017 seasons with two-a-day workouts opening Aug. 1. Local teams will not have long to prepare for the season ahead, with most scheduled to scrimmage in various locales Aug. 4-5 and non-district play beginning Aug. 8.
