HASTINGS, Neb. — Officials say the potential threat that caused a school lockdown at Adams Central High School was not credible.

Adams Central was hosting Minden for the first football game of the season on Friday night. The game went into a lightning delay around 8:20 and the stadium was evacuated. The teams, coaches and some fans went to the school gym to wait out the storm. 

At some point, at least two hours into the delay, school administration became aware of a potential threat at the school. A news release says, as precaution, the school went into lockdown. The teams and fans were sent from the gym to individual rooms in the building and doors were locked. The Adams County Sheriff’s Office arrived and determined there was no threat. The people in the school started to be released around 11:10.

The football game will resume at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. Minden leads Adams Central 6-0 early in the third quarter. The game will be broadcast on ESPN Tri-Cities 1550 AM/92.7 FM.
