School board postpones vote on football ticket price hike in Rock Hill

— The Rock Hill school board did not vote Monday on a proposal to increase ticket prices to high school varsity football games.

Chairman Jim Vining proposed discussing the topic when the board meets again on May 12.

Earlier this month, Northwestern High School athletic director Lauren West gave the board a proposal on behalf of all schools in Region 3 to raise the ticket price for home games to $7 from $6, and to $10 from $7 for intra-city games.

The increase is needed to keep up with the cost of football programs, West said. Many in the community have spoken out against an increase.
