It’s Rivalry Week, and the Cross Country team would like to invite Devil Nation to a send-off for the game ball on Thursday, Aug. 29, at 4:30, at Wilder Stadium. Head Cross Country Coach Lee Atkinson, explains, “The CHS Student Government will provide some music. The Red Devil cheerleaders and the CHS Devil Regiment will be there, as well. The band will play the fight song at 5:00. At the playing of the fight song, the XC teams will carry the football out of the visitors’ gate through a human tunnel of fans, cheerleaders, and band members. The event will last about 30 minutes.”
After the teams leave the stadium, they will run up the CMS driveway and out to Adair Street. They will turn right onto Carolina Avenue and run all the way out to Plantation Plaza (near the hospital), where Clinton will hand off the game ball to the Laurens XC teams. Clinton XC will then load their bus and follow the Laurens team to the Square.
We hope that you will have some time to join us in this brief sendoff, for our 3rd “Running of the Game Ball.” GO BIG RED!
