High school football championship games rescheduled for next weekend


Four games postponed on FridayComplete HS coverage

Saturday’s high school football state championship games at Mercedes-Benz Stadium have been postponed and will be played next weekend.

Two of the four games scheduled for Friday were postponed after heavy snow hit metro Atlanta during the day on Friday.  Two of Saturday’s games were postponed at the time, and the final two games scheduled for today were officially postponed Saturday morning.

Those six unplayed championship games will be hosted at school sites, despite consideration to bring the games back to the Atlanta area at a large facility, either Georgia State or McEachern High School.

Under the emergency guidelines published by the Georgia High School Association  last week, the higher-seeded team earned the right to host the game. In case of two equally seeded teams, a coin flip determined the site. Warner Robins and Rabun County won a coin flip and will host their championship games.

The championship schedule is: Class AAAAAAA, Colquitt County at North Gwinnett, Friday at 7:30 p.m.; Class AAAAAA, Coffee at Lee County, Friday at 7:30 p.m.; Class AAAAA, Rome at Warner Robins, Friday at 7:30 p.m.; Class AAAA, Blessed Trinity at Marist, Friday at 7:30 p.m.; Class AA, Hapeville Charter at Rabun County, Friday at 7:30 p.m.; Class A Public, Clinch County at Irwin County, date and time to be determined.

But after Miyahara finished, Mori, 40, quickly folded the Japanese flag and pulled out another: a Canadian one that she unfurled for Kaetlyn Osmond, a Canadian skater...

Race across the snow on skis as fast as you can. Now stop and shoot a target the size of an Oreo about 54 yards away. If you miss, you’ll ski penalty laps before you are allowed to race to the next set of targets. Most of us will never try the biathlon, a uniquely stressful sport that demands both physical intensity and emotional calm. But that...

Instead of fining Mark Cuban $600,000 on Wednesday for publicly admitting his team should purposely lose games, Commissioner Adam Silver should fix the fraudulent scam known as the National Bogus-ball Association’s regular season.   Somebody asked me the other day how it’s possible that the NFL’s Pro Bowl — as meaningless...
