REGIONAL: Catawba, Limestome football game cancelled

Catawba College Athletics and its football program have been forced to postpone its second consecutive game scheduled for this weekend, Oct. 2, against Limestone due to COVID-19 related issues with the team.

The Catawba Indians were scheduled to play at Wingate in their first SAC match-up Sept. 25.

“The health and safety of our students, faculty, and college community are our top priority,” said Craig Turnbull, Interim Athletic Director. “This is the best course of action for everyone. We are heartbroken for our student-athletes who worked so hard to prepare for these games and had started the season off strong.”

“This is why we are encouraging everyone at Catawba College to get vaccinated,” continued Turnbull. “Our goal is to keep our campus healthy and experience normal athletic activities.”
