Bad weather postpones district basketball and cancels after-school activities | Advertisement


With the threat of extreme weather threatening much of Central State, Tullahoma athletics officials have announced that all extracurricular activities, including basketball games scheduled for tonight, will be postponed.

Sporting director John Olive has said the two games scheduled for tonight will be rescheduled for tomorrow night. Tullahoma was scheduled to host the Page Lady Patriots in their game against the Lincoln County Lady Falcons and the Tullahoma Lady Wildcats game with the Lawrence County Lady Wildcats. Both of these games will be rescheduled to accommodate the boys’ games that were already scheduled for Friday night.

Olive said the new schedule for Friday is as follows:

  • 4 p.m. Page vs. Lincoln County (girls)
  • 5:30 p.m. Page vs Lawrence County (Boys)
  • 7 p.m. Tullahoma vs. Lawrence County (girls)
  • 8:30 p.m. Tullahoma vs. Lincoln County (boys)

Early severe weather forecasts for the Tullahoma area estimated strong storms could move in around 6 p.m. Basketball games were originally scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

By late morning, however, forecasts predicted that storms could move into the region after 3 p.m.

Tullahoma City Schools Communications Specialist Zach Birdsong announced that all other extracurricular activities, including elementary school parent-teacher conferences, were included in the cancellations. Kool Kids for this afternoon has also been canceled, district officials said.

Despite the cancellations and precautionary postponements, Birdsong said schools would be out at 3 p.m. as usual.
