It was announced Monday that North Surry and West Stokes, who faced each other in week two, were postponing their week three varsity games due to COVID-19 protocol. North Surry’s original week three opponent, Elkin, will now travel to North Moore (2-0) on Friday.
With West Stokes unavailable, East Surry was able to schedule a varsity game against East Wilkes for Friday. East Surry did not compete in week two due to COVID-19 protocol. East Surry’s game against Mount Airy was postponed just hours before kickoff, and Mount Airy ended up traveling to Draughn High School for a Saturday game.
