Safety fears mean barren bleachers at S.C. games
CENTRAL, S.C. (AP) -- Well, at least there won't be any hecklers.
The bleachers will be barren Friday at a high school basketball doubleheader between two rivals in northwestern South Carolina. School officials say no fans will be allowed in because of safety concerns.
Attendance at the boys' and girls' varsity games in the town of Central will be limited to players, coaches, officials, game personnel, school administrators, police and the media.
