The football game scheduled for Friday, Sept. 17, as part of the annual Unicoi County High School Homecoming has been cancelled.
The visiting opponent, Claiborne County, had to cancel due to a COVID situation in the Claiborne County football program, according to a statement released by the UCHS website on Wednesday afternoon.
Although the football game has been cancelled, Homecoming activities will take place as scheduled.
“The Homecoming Parade through Main and the Homecoming festivities will go on at Gentry Stadium,” announced Homecoming Committee Chair Kelly Boling.
Boling said that the 2021 Homecoming Parade along Main Street is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 17.
