The Big Game on Friday(Page at Ragsdale), has taken a slight twist, as we received word today, that at least two of the starting linemen for Lucy C. Ragsdale, have been hit hard by the Flu bug.
We don’t know how much this might effect Friday’s game, but the word is if you don’t practice(say you miss school due to the flu), then you do not play on Friday night…..At this point, reserves would have to be called into duty and pressed into starting roles…….
How much school you have to miss, before you end up missing the game, has yet to be determined…….

Here is some of the history for you on the host school for Friday’s game Lucy C. Ragsdale:
In 1907 the North Carolina General Assembly enacted a law providing for the creation and maintenance of public high schools in each county.
Jamestown Public School, a union school, was built and became the “best equipped school” in Guilford County with dormitories for boarding students. In 1914 the school was destroyed by fire, but a new building was completed the next year. This building now stands in the heart of Jamestown and houses the Jamestown Public Library.
The school grew steadily and a new high school complex in Jamestown was opened in September 1959. The new high school was named for Lucy Coffin Ragsdale because of her dedication and interest to public school education in Jamestown. The first principal of Ragsdale High School was T.G. Madison, followed by Dr. Steve Dalton. Dr. Kathryn Rogers, the current principal, is only the third principal in the history of the school.
Ragsdale has been accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools since 1962. Ragsdale was the first high school in Guilford County to receive this recognition.
