STANLY COUNTY, N.C. — North Stanly High School's 2020-21 football season has been concluded earlier than expected after a COVID-19 exposure.

According to Beverly Penington, the director of student services and county athletic director, the North Stanly High School football team is currently under quarantine.

Further details about the nature of the COVID-19 exposure have not been released, but the team's football season has been concluded under guidance from the Stanly County Health Department. 

It's an unfortunate end to the season for North Stanly, which was a No. 1 seed in the upcoming 1AA football playoffs. The Comets were 6-0 for the season and were set to host Polk County in Friday's first round.
