Friday morning, the Lake City High School athletic director Matt Apicella called Marlboro County head coach Bobby Collins to give him bad news.
A Panther player had tested positive for the virus and the whole team had to go into quarantine. Thus, the Bulldogs' homecoming game had to be postponed.
"They called at about 8 a.m. Friday morning, so it was too late to try to arrange a quick replacement game. We'll just put our gameplan in the drawer and pull it back out next week," said Collins.
The Bulldogs and Panthers are hardly the only teams to have to rearrange to the pandemic. Only Crestwood among Region 6-AAA teams has played their season as planned. Cheraw had only played one game prior to Monday night when they defeated Chesterfield 55-24.
