SPARTA — A white truck unloaded food products at the concession area near the football stadium. Meanwhile, a Highland High School maintenance worker hosed down the nearby steps, while a student took inventory in an equipment storage area.

Highland High School will host its first regional semifinal football game tonight at Fishburn Family Field. Carey will take on Jeromesville Hillsdale in a Division VI at 7:30 p.m. The stadium has to be ready, and Highland Athletic Director Mike DeLaney is overseeing the entire project.
