With several South Carolina school districts remaining closed, the South Carolina High School League is extending the volleyball and girls tennis seasons for an additional week as well as altering some swim deadlines.
"The schools most affected by flooding and unable to practice or compete have expressed a strong desire to continue their season with the aid of an additional week and/or schedule considerations," commissioner Jerome Singleton said. "It is our hope to serve the best interest of the membership as a whole with consideration to those schools who have had their schedules revamped due to no fault of their own. We are fortunate to have a membership of team players supporting one another during this trying time. Thank you to everyone working to keep our students fully engaged in academics and athletics."
Both volleyball and girls tennis state finals will be held on Nov. 10. Volleyball and girls tennis press conference will now be held Nov. 7. The press conference will be available on Facebook Live starting at 9 a.m.
Member schools with swim teams in AAAA and AAAAA Region 6 and AAA Region 8 will be allowed to compete until Oct. 2 for the purpose of submitting times for the state finals.
Visit www.schsl.org to review the brackets for each sport and classification as we will update as needed. The state final dates and venues for cross country, competitive cheer, girls golf and swim will remain as scheduled; there are no changes.
The League Office will continue to monitor issues due to Hurricane Florence and make any adjustments as necessary.
