Most high school football games postponed because of hurricane

Posted

The only local high school football game that still has the possibility of being played on Friday is Wilson Hall's game against Hammond in Columbia as Hurricane Florence bears down on the Southeast coast.

Officials at the schools are waiting a while longer before making a final determination.

The other local South Carolina Independent School Association schools have decided not to play on Friday. Robert E. Lee Academy will determine on Saturday if its game against Williamsburg Academy scheduled for Kingstree will be played on Monday.

Laurence Manning Academy was scheduled to travel to Charleston to face Porter-Gaud, Thomas Sumter Academy was to go to Lexington to play Northside Christian, and Clarendon Hall was to go to St. Matthews to take on Calhoun Academy. None of the games have been rescheduled at this time.

All of the local South Carolina High School League teams had their games postponed on Monday when Gov. Henry McMaster cancelled classes for the rest of the week, including Sumter, Clarendon and Lee.

PTC event cancelled

The Palmetto Tennis Center Invitational scheduled for Friday through Sunday at the PTC has been postponed due to the threat of Hurricane Florence.

The event was to bring in college players from schools in South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee.
