AA Football Championship postponed due to COVID-19

Class AA contest postponed due to team quarantine Columbia, SC-The Class AA Football State Championship contest previously scheduled for Friday, December 4, 2020, has been postponed due to Covid-19 virus.

Abbeville High School and Marion High School were to compete for the AA title at Spring Valley High tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. “While this is a very unfortunate turn of events, we appreciate the school’s decision to practice the safety measures recommended by the Department of Health and Environmental Control,” states Commissioner Jerome Singleton.

The Class AA Football Championship will be rescheduled once avenue has been reserved and the teams confirm their ability to compete.

All tickets purchased this week will be honored at that time. Commissioner Singleton adds, “A state championship game is one that forfeiture should be avoided if possible. This scenario affords us the opportunity to adjust our schedule to accommodate the competing schools.”
