Schedules feel chill of winter

With today’s closure of Dalton City, Whitfield County and Murray County public schools, the area’s high school athletic schedule has been taken out by the cold weather as well.

The only exception is at Dalton High School, where the boys and girls basketball teams are expected to take on Ridgeland in a Sub-region 7B-4A matchup at 6 p.m.

“We may play just varsity only, but we are still good to go,” Dalton athletic director Jeff McKinney said. “The only thing that could happen is that Walker County Schools could tell them (today) that they can’t travel, but we are planning on playing right now.”

Among the basketball games which have been canceled today are Christian Heritage girls at Murray County, Adairsville at Coahulla Creek, Ringgold at North Murray, Heritage-Catoosa at Northwest Whitfield, Southeast Whitfield at LaFayette and Morris Innovative boys at Murray County. Dalton’s swimming meet at Baylor in Chattanooga has also been canceled.

On the wrestling mats, Murray County was scheduled to travel to Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe and Coahulla Creek and Southeast Whitfield were traveling to Ringgold. While Murray County’s match has been canceled, Coahulla Creek athletic director Rhett Parrott said he was still waiting to hear back from Ringgold and a decision would likely be made this morning.

The basketball game between Christian Heritage girls and Murray County has been moved to Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. The Murray boys will host Morris Innovative following the girls contest at 6:30.

The only other rescheduled event is the basketball games between North Murray and Ringgold, which are now Saturday, Jan. 25, at 3 p.m. and feature varsity games only.
