International Automotive Components Group

Late Friday afternoon Shenandoah  County Public Schools announced the cancellation of the Strasburg Ram’s first game of the season.

Strasburg Rams were to open the football season against Skyline High School on Fri. Aug. 26.

The cancellation stemmed from a social media comment threatening the safety of students and  fans at the game at Strasburg’s Glenn Proctor Field.

The Shenandoah County School Board did not say what type of thereat was indicated.

Shenandoah County Sheriff Tim Carter did say the threat came from a student at Strasburg High School but there was not enough or sufficient evidence to press charges.

Anyone with any additional information can contact the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office at 540-459-6100.
