Tiftarea releases tentative sports schedules

TIFTON — As spring gives way to summer, scheduling is on the mind of most schools. Tiftarea Academy has been one of them and they have obviously taken the issue to heart. The school has not only released a tentative softball schedule, but one for basketball, too.

Deerfield-Windsor will kick off the region softball slate, as the Lady Panthers will be heading there Aug. 7. Their region home opener is set to be against Valwood on Aug. 12., Aug. 18 brings Terrell Academy to Chula and three days later, they are to play at Brookwood. Next will be Southland Academy on Aug. 26 before they go to Westwood Aug. 28.

They are currently scheduled to play the same schools in the same order during the second half of the season, with home and away reversed from the first half.

As the hoops schedule currently stands, Tiftarea appears to have two open dates for early December, but are busy for the rest of the season.

The Panthers and Lady Panthers are to begin on the road, according to the schedule, as they play Southwest Georgia Academy in Damascus on Nov. 18. The first home game is listed as Nov. 21 as they renew their acquaintanceship with Citizens Christian.

Games at Westfield, home against SGA, at Citizens Christian, and contests in Chula versus Georgia Christian and Fullington Academy fill out the pre-Christmas slate.

Region contests start quickly in 2015 as the Panthers host Valwood, go to Westwood and host Southland Academy in a three-day span, starting Jan. 6. Other region games are against Brookwood, Terrell Academy and Deerfield-Windsor.

The regular season is to wrap with Deerfield-Windsor at home on Feb. 13.

At least one junior varsity game will be played before every scheduled varsity doubleheader.
