            More than 40 players are reporting for physicals and testing today as the La Crosse Night Train begins official training camp this weekend. Players will undergo physicals today at Gundersen Lutheran before attending meetings this afternoon. Testing and orientation will take place tonight beginning at 8:00 p.m. at the La Crosse Boys & Girls Club.

            Tomorrow morning’s 8:00 a.m. session will be the official start of the 2003 season for the Night Train, which will trim its roster to 25 by March 12.
