The team said the reason is that a large number of varsity football players have been quarantined or have tested positive for COVID-19.

According to the Twitter post, with the return of the JV team, they hope they will be able to play against St. James High School on Friday, Sept. 3.

The most recent data from the Horry County Schools COVID-19 dashboard shows there are eight COVID-19 cases among students at Myrtle Beach High School. HCS does not provide information on how many students are in quarantine but is working on a system to report that information.
