— The Region 6-A, 7-2A and Region 7-4A high school basketball tournament games have been called off today due to the threat of bad weather and dangerous travel conditions. Games scheduled for today in regions 7-2A and 7-4A will be played Tuesday, weather permitting.

Region 6-A takes a whole different look.

In Region 6-A, Christian Heritage’s girls were scheduled to Mount Paran Christian at 4 p.m. today and the Christian Heritage boys were set to Walker-Marietta at 8:30 p.m. The tournament is at Darlington School in Rome.
