The Owls' football team won't be playing at Dundalk tonight after a "verbal altercation" at the school this morning.
Dundalk's homecoming varsity football game against Towson will instead be held tomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 2 at 10 a.m. at CCBC Essex, and the junior varsity game is canceled, according to athletic director Tim Scherer, who said tickets for Friday's game will be honored on Saturday.
In a letter sent to parents on Friday said that this morning, Dundalk Principal Larissa Santos said "a group of students were engaged in a serious verbal altercation," which police de-escalated.
"We believe this incident was a result of an ongoing community dispute and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone today’s Homecoming activities, including this evening’s Varsity football game," Santos said in the letter.
Homecoming dances and indoor pep rallies had already been canceled for all Baltimore County Public Schools earlier this month due to COVID-19 concerns.
