They will be opponents on the football field Saturday, but before and after the game, Sacred Heart-Griffin and Washington High Schools will be on the same team.
SH-G is pulling together a major effort to help players, coaches and fans from Washington, a town that was devastated by an EF-4 tornado on Sunday. SH-G is providing food for the Washington team before and after the game… and is also arranging buses and a meal for fans from Washington, many of whom had vehicles destroyed in the storm. Other fundraising efforts are also underway, with the proceeds going back to Washington to assist with tornado recovery.
Sacred Heart-Griffin and Washington are both unbeaten, and will play in a Class 5A semifinal game at 1pm Saturday at SH-G Stadium.
