OHS Football Plays at Lumen Field Saturday Sept 17

New information for the OHS Football game at Lumen Field 9/17! We apologize for the ticketing changes on this event. This is not an OHS-run event so we are getting communications from program organizers.

We sent the ticket link they asked us to share and a day later we were told they will add student pricing. So, now there is a student price available at the same link -

Tickets are available online or at the door.

Saturday 9/17 at 9:30am Lumen Field against Steilacoom! We are the AWAY team.
