Due to the expected weather conditions resulting from Hurricane Delta passing through North Louisiana this Friday evening the football game between JHHS and Loyola College Prep has been cancelled.
“I hate we had to do this but in the best interest of being safe we felt we had no other choice than to cancel the game,” said JH head coach Terrance Blankenship. “We tried to get the game moved to Thursday but the Loyola coach said that wasn’t possible.”
“The eye of the hurricane is expected to be passing near Jonesboro around 10:00 pm Friday night,” continued Blankenship. “That means we would have been on the road coming back from Shreveport in what could be severe and very dangerous conditions. Plus people would have had to get out in the storm to pick up their kids. It was simply to much of a risk to take.”
The contest will not be re-scheduled.
