Quarantines hit North Fulton football: Milton, Cambridge out, Eagles cheerleaders also sat down

Milton High School’s football team, the state’s Class 7A football champions in 2018, were put on quarantine today and will not be able to return to the practice field until Sept. 3. Also, the Eagles cheerleading squad has been quarantined while neighboring school Cambridge’s football team is under quarantine and will not be able to restart until Aug. 29.

Both Milton and Cambridge, however, may be ready for their first game, With the GHSA opening the season on Sept. 2-5, Fulton County schools had their seasons pushed back two weeks by the county office. Cambridge’s first game is Sept. 25 at Forsyth Central. Milton opens on Sept. 17, hosting Johns Creek. This is the first official quarantine for Milton. Their head coach Adam Clack tested positive for Covid-19 during the dead week in late June. The team returned to workouts without Clack, their coach getting back on the field a week or so later. Milton was 8-4 last season and lost in the second round of the playoffs to eventual Class 7A state champion Marietta while Cambridge went 4-6.
