South Whidbey’s homecoming football game against Sultan, which was scheduled for Friday at 7 p.m., has been cancelled due to a power outage, according to Athletic Director Paul Lagerstedt.
The girls soccer home game against Sultan scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday has also been cancelled. It has been rescheduled for 6 p.m. on Oct. 20.

Lagerstedt said that if there is power and a school day on Monday, the Falcons’ football game will be played at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 17. If there is no power or a school day, the game will be rescheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 25.

In addition to the two cancelled games, the homecoming dance scheduled for Saturday night has also been cancelled. It has been rescheduled for Oct. 22.

Lagerstedt said power to the district was lost at around 4:30 p.m. and that the power was still out at around 6:30 p.m. on Friday night. Lagerstedt said the dance was cancelled due to safety concerns.

“We just felt like waiting on whether we had power or not, we would just cancel the dance and the football game,” Lagerstedt said. “Let’s just not have kids running around in the weather.”

Lagerstedt said he understands that it is probably a frustrating feeling for the athletes not being able to play in their homecoming game.

“That’s what makes it really tough,” Lagerstedt said. “We’re going top be sure and try and get those traditions and festivities finished out in the upcoming athletic events.”
