VHSL approves Haysi field for semis
The Virginia High School League has approved Haysi's field conditions for Saturday's state semifinal game against Altavista.
According to Haysi athletic director Dwayne Edwards, Altavista high school asked the VHSL for a field inspection this week.
The field at Sandlick Elementary has hosted three straight postseason games and has been exposed to rain and snow the past several weeks.
Edwards confirmed to News 5 WCYB that the field has been approved, but that the VHSL has made recommendations leading up to Saturday's game.
One recommendation includes covering the field with a tarp so that rainfall later this week doesn't make the conditions worse.
Edwards said the tarp will be placed on the field Wednesday night.
Undefeated Haysi and 12-1 Altavista kick off Saturday at 2 p.m.
