Re: ACF Fall (HS mirror) @ Maryland (Nov. 4)

Currently, Charter is the only school signed up for the high school mirror of ACF Fall. For now, the tournament is happening but since we’ve had little interest from high schools, it is very likely to be canceled. I will make this decision in the next couple of days and provide an update accordingly.
