A game in South Carolina was postponed Friday after the referee decided the field was unplayable because of fire ants. Referee Steve Hook says he found 15 to 20 large active fire ant mounds shortly before the game.

Hook says he was worried about players, coaches and officials. Bruce Hulion with the South Carolina High School League says officials properly handled the safety issue.

The home team, Hunter-Kinard-Tyler, tried digging up the ant piles and pouring salt on them before the game was postponed. One fan offered to bring fire-ant poison.

The field was deemed ready Monday night. Calhoun County beat the home team 19-8.


I think this webpage is very cool and interesting. I like how all the paragraphs are different colors and fonts.

I really like the color of the background and all the pretty colors. I would want to take this class if I went to Gross.

I think you should have put more information in this. But the colors are very cool and this webpage really grabs your attention.
