You may want to check with your local high school before attending any basketball games this weekend.
Gwinnett, DeKalb, Fulton and Cobb have cancelled all athletic events this weekend due to icy conditions. Several other metro counties were expected to follow.
“It’s going to hurt is with some basketball gates, but what else can you do? Safety is the most important thing with our kids,” DeKalb County athletics director Ron Sebree said.
The GHSA postponed swimming and wrestling for this weekend, but left it up to each individual school to decide whether or not to play its basketball games on Friday and Saturday.
The state’s basketball season is in a complete mess. Here’s the GHSA’s six-point plan to make sure the playoffs tip off on schedule later this month.
Do you have any suggestions for a better weather plan for basketball, wrestling or swimming? If so, post below.
