Hurricane Florence throws local sports scene a curve

In response to the impending arrival of Hurricane Florence and the mandatory evacuation issued by the South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, all Horry County Schools athletic events have been cancelled from Tuesday through Friday, and the dates could be extended depending on impacts locally.

That means all sporting events set for Tuesday, like the much-anticipated Lower Statte volleyball championship between Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, through Friday, like the battle of football unbeatens between Carolina Forest and Myrtle Beach, will be rescheduled for another date. Other affected games include North Myrtle Beach at Socastee and Georgetown at St. James. Check back for updates.

The high schools aren’t the only ones feeling the fallout of the approaching Category 4 storm. A number of Coastal Carolina athletic home events have been moved or rescheduled, including the football team’s game that was set for Saturday. The Chants’ home football game versus Campbell has been moved from Saturday, Sept. 15, to Wednesday, Sept. 12. The has also been relocated to Campbell’s home field Barker-Lane Stadium in Buies Creek, N.C. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. ET.

The men’s soccer match set for Tuesday (Sept. 11) with Radford has been canceled. The home match versus George Mason set for Sunday afternoon (Sept. 16) has also been canceled. Neither match has been rescheduled at this time.

Other CCU teams impacted include:

* Women’s Soccer CCU’s Friday night (Sept. 14) matchup with Arkansas-Little Rock has been moved from the CCU Soccer Stadium to a neutral site at either Kennesaw State or Oglethorpe University in Georgia. Game time is yet to be determined. Sunday’s match with Arkansas State will be rescheduled for a later date.

* Men’s & Women’s Cross Country: The Winthrop Invitational scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15 in Rock Hill, S.C. has been now canceled due to impending weather conditions due to Hurricane Florence. No make-up dates have been announced. The Coastal Carolina cross country teams will return to completion on Saturday, September 29 at Lehigh University’s Paul Short Invitational in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

* Volleyball: The Coastal Carolina Classic set for Sept. 13-15 has been canceled. The volleyball team will travel to Fort Worth, Texas to play against the TCU Horned Frogs. Game dates and times have not yet been set.

* Women’s Tennis: The Chants fall opener at the College of Charleston Tournament has been canceled. Coastal will now open up its 2018 fall slate at the UNC Charlotte Tournament on Oct. 5-6 in Charlotte, N.C.

* Women’s Golf: Coastal Carolina women’s golf team will tee off its 2018 fall season as originally planned at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate Championships this weekend, Sept. 17-18, in Knoxville, Tenn.
