Augusta Prep football opener washed out

Weather conditions are affecting tonight’s scheduled football contests throughout the area, including the season opener at Augusta Prep.

School officials deemed Augusta Prep’s field unplayable Friday afternoon and canceled their game against Holy Spirit Prep.

“The water’s already ankle deep,” said Augusta Prep athletic director Tom Holodak, who was worried what the field would be like if the rain continued through the day and with the possible threat of lightning. “I don’t want Holy Spirit to come six hours on a bus here and there and not play.”

Because the game is not a division game in the Glory For Christ conference, it will not be made up.

The dedication of the Cavaliers’ new stadium, planned for tonight, has been postponed until Aug. 23 when the Cavaliers play host to Bethlehem Christian Academy at 7:30 p.m.

Greenbrier was slated to scrimmage Westside at 7:30 p.m., but it has been postponed until Monday at 6:30 p.m.

The Grovetown scrimmage against Josey also has been postponed. The two teams will meet at Grovetown next week at a yet-to-be-determined date and time.

Early Friday afternoon, both the Aiken County jamboree at South Aiken and the Evans’ Friday night scrimmage at Thomson were still scheduled.
