North Charleston High-Garrett Academy Football Game Cancelled
Charleston, SC — Garrett Academy and North Charleston High School administrators have decided to cancel tonight’s varsity football game to be held at Attaway-Heinsohn Stadium in North Charleston, SC.
This decision was based upon the continued threats of violence being made as a result of the recent tragedies in the area. Our students and their well-being is of the utmost importance, and the cancellation of this game is our way of ensuring their safety.
