Meet the Trojans event pushed back to Aug. 23, other Fairfield sports news
Fairfield High School’s “Meet the Trojans” event has been moved to Aug. 23. The reason for the event moving back is that football teams are only allowed to scrimmage after 10 days of practice. The Trojans’ scrimmage against Knoxville will on be Aug. 23 instead of Aug. 22 in order for that guideline to be met.
Fairfield High School Activities Director Jeff Courtright says that an agenda for Meet the Trojans night will be released soon.
