Spartanburg High, which had an open date this week, will now play at Union Co. Friday night as a result of Broome suddenly postponing its visit to the Yellow Jackets Thursday.
Spartanburg District Three announced in a release Thursday afternoon:
Spartanburg School District Three was made aware of a student athlete testing positive for COVID-19. Although the student is asymptomatic and DHEC believes they caught the virus outside of
the school, District Three will always prioritize our students and staff’s safety. This means we will be postponing all varsity football practices and games until October 21, 2020.
It also means that Broome will not play it’s October 16th game at Woodruff.
It’s the second game the Centurions have had to call off this season after missing their opener against Emerald due to a COVID-19 issue within their program. The Centurions have played one game so far this season, a 27-26 win at Clinton last Friday.
Union Co.’s jayvee game at Broome remains on for Thursday night, Yellow Jackets’ head coach Brian Thompson said Thursday afternoon.
The Walhalla at Travelers Rest game schedule for Friday night has been postponed until October 30th due to a COVID-19 issue within the Devildogs program, Greenville County Schools announced Thursday.
Greenville County Schools said two varsity football players at Travelers Rest High School have tested positive for COVID-19 and a third is awaiting test results. The school’s football program has also suspended all practices.
Earlier this week, the Byrnes at Dorman football game that was scheduled for this Friday night was been postponed until Friday, October 30 due to COVID-19 protocol with the Byrnes football team.
Byrnes scheduled game the following week at Hanna has also been canceled.
The Byrnes/Dorman make-up date means Dorman’s game with Boiling Springs for October 30th is canceled as is Byrnes’ with Greer.
Byrnes head coach Reggie Shaw says it’s not clear if the game the following Friday at Hanna will also be impacted.
Greer and Boiling Springs have subsequently scheduled a game October 30th on the Bulldogs’ home field.
Meanwhile, Pickens at Easley scheduled for Friday night has been moved up to a Thursday 7:30pm start due to concerns about Friday’s weather forecast.
West-Oak is also playing host to Franklin Co.(GA) Thursday evening.
