The South Carolina High School League will start this year’s playoffs one week later because of Hurricane Florence. State officials made the decision Tuesday, so that teams can make-up game lost to last week’s weather.
Teams will be allowed to make up games on November 2 and then start the playoffs on November 9. The state championship will now be played December 7-8.
This is the third time in four years that South Carolina has pushed back the postseason because of weather-related postponements.
North Carolina is also considering a change to the postseason schedule.
