Homecoming game postponed; parade and dance still on

By Kristian Russell - Krussell@elkintribune.com

With Hurricane Michael bringing torrential rain to the area, Elkin football has decided to postpone Friday night’s homecoming game. The parade at 4 p.m., and Saturday’s homecoming dance will go on as planned.

The Buckin’ Elks were set to host North Wilkes in a conference game.

Big Elkin Creek near Grissom Stadium was out of its banks on Thursday afternoon. The flooding reached the football field, which resulted in standing water and unplayable conditions.

A new makeup date has yet to be decided.
