As the snow began to fall last Friday many students were excited that schools would be let out early. Little did they know what they were about get included…. cancelling the State Football playoff game Saturday night at the Mercedes Benz Stadium.
The game between North Gwinnett and Colquitt Co. will take place this Friday December 15 at North Gwinnett Hs. In Suwanee. North is the higher seed in the tournament giving them home field advantage.
While the seniors were discouraged they will not get to play on the big stage at the Mercedes Benz stadium, they have home field advantage and will have the home crowd on their side. Coach Stewart of North Gwinnett has had another week to prepare making this State Championship a great event for the Suwanee area. This is the first time a State Championship will be hosted at N. Gwinnett.
The athletic department and all the staff will be working long hours in preparation for this event. Game time is 7:30 Friday evening. Please arrive early as traffic and parking will be at a premium.
