August 12, 2020 – HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association has announced that high school sports in North Carolina will not resume until November.

The decision, passed by the Board of Directors Tuesday night, spreads the sports which traditionally take place during autumn throughout the winter and spring months. The domino effect from that decision means changes for all sports schedules during the 2020-21 school year.
