Winds howl as Hurricane Michael makes landfall east of Panama City Beach
Hurricane Michael’s path through the Columbus area and the more severe damage in the Albany area has prompted the Muscogee County School District to change its high school sports schedule for the fourth time this week.
Friday afternoon, MCSD announced Carver’s game against Westover and Hardaway’s game against Dougherty are canceled, with no rescheduled date determined, as the Albany area continues to recover from the storm.
Here is the updated MCSD high school sports schedule for this week:
Columbus vs. Shaw, A.J. McClung Memorial Stadium, 7:30 p.m.
Jordan vs. Heard County, Kinnett Stadium, 7:30 p.m.
Kendrick at Jackson, 7:30 p.m.
Northside at Americus, noon
Spencer at Callaway, noon
The Region 1-AAAA tournament will resume Monday at Columbus High School. Hardaway will play Shaw at 5 p.m. in the semifinal, and Columbus will play Northside at 6:30 p.m. in the final. All four teams have qualified for the state playoffs and will play in the first round Oct. 20.
The Region 5-AA tournament remains scheduled for Saturday at Bremen High School, starting at 1 p.m.
