MARION, S.C. (WMBF) - The 2A state championship game between Marion and Abbeville has been postponed due to COVID-19, according to the South Carolina High School League.

The game was originally scheduled for 5 p.m. Friday at Spring Valley High School.

“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,” SCHSL Commissioner Jerome Singleton said.

The SCHSL confirmed the game will be rescheduled once a venue has been reserved and the teams confirm their ability to compete. All tickets purchased this week will be honored at that time.

Marion head coach Randall State said he hopes the game will be played on Dec. 19.
