The return of local, high school football is now! Now for more than 50 consecutive years, WIZS will once again broadcast our local games live this season.
The first of 12-straight weeks of regular season action begins this week, August 21. The WIZS game of the week features Northern Vance hosting East Chapel Hill. We will also have play by play and live reports from the Southern Vance at Ravenscroft contest. Pregame airtime is 6:45 P.M., and the NV game kicks off at 7:00 P.M. The SV game will not kickoff until 7:30 P.M.
Not only are the games available on 1450 AM, but you can also listen live here on wizs.com by clicking on the Listen Now link on the top left of your web browser.
Northern Vance High School and Southern Vance High School will meet each other in the Optimist Bowl on Friday night, September 4, at 7:00pm. The gridiron match up will take place at Viking Stadium this season. Although the two schools previously played the bowl as the regular-season finale, and did so since Southern opened its doors in the fall of 1990, the game has been played the last couple of years much earlier in the schedule because they are no longer in the same conference.
