TIFTON — Saturday’s Tift County-Turner County basketball games have been canceled.
Tift County Schools announced the decision Wednesday morning. In social media postings to the Tift County Athletics accounts, the Blue Devils announced that “Out of an abundance of caution, the decision has been made to cancel the Turner County basketball game scheduled for this Saturday. Based on recent data shared by Turner County, we want to continue our efforts to #ProtecttheT by not hosting a non-region opponent this week.”
A Wednesday morning post on Tift County Basketball added “While neither of us have COVID issues, we are both in Region Play.” Neither school wants to jeopardize upcoming games with region opponents, it said.
Friday’s region games at Camden County remain on the schedule. Varsity action will begin at 5 p.m.
