Are you Ready for Wildcat Football?

Meridian High School football kicks off in just one week! We will start the season by hosting the Clinton Arrows at home on Friday, August 17 at 7:30 p.m.

However, Ray Stadium is going to look a little different this year! The stadium’s reserved section will have chair back seats, and Charles Armstrong Field will have artificial turf! We are excited about another great football season and our stadium updates!!
