UPDATE – 7 a.m.
Let’s get the day and week started with some high school football scheduling news. Some games were added to the schedule for this week:
- Musselman at Fairmont Senior, 7 p.m. Friday
- Tygarts Valley at Gilmer County, 7 p.m. Friday
- Linsly at Wheeling Park, 7 p.m. Friday
- Mount View at River View, 7:30 p.m. Friday
- Cameron at East Fairmont, 7 p.m. Thursday
Of note from that batch of new games is Linsly’s trip to Wheeling Park. Linsly is a former military schools turned boarding and day school located in Wheeling, but has never played a football game against Wheeling Park — which opened in 1976. The last time Linsly played one of the schools that consolidated to form Wheeling Park was a 1975 game against Warwood High. Linsly is not a West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission member, and is not eligible for playoff contention in West Virginia high school sports.
