Wizards camp 2010 - Day 1

First day of practice for 2010 was all about fitness testing. Beep tests, speed tests and all manner of running took place at the Indoor Practice Facility.

The dreaded beep test was run in two groups. Harrington won the first group with Hohlbein a close second. Kraus and Souter both went out at together to win the second group.

Tomorrow will be some soccer skills and Thursday will be more fitness testing.

Auvray and Escobar are not in camp yet. Auvray will be here this week and Escobar will join the team in Arizona.
