Body paint banned at local high schools

High school football fans may be a bit less colorful this season... Body paint is no longer allowed at sporting events. The board of the North Carolina Athletic Association made the decision after safety concerns were raised about inappropriate attire and conflicts between schools. New Hanover County Athletic Director Joe Miller says he loves to see fan support but this new rule comes at a good time. Miller said, "We may have had some incidents were there was inappropriate language or symbols on this body paint that has led to some problems, so they have decided to eliminate it all together." Forty-nine schools in our region are affected by the body painting ban.
