The recent inclement weather and its effect on the road conditions has cancelled several activities throughout Bartow County this week.

The local high school athletic programs have also been affected as there has not been any practice or games for the five local schools this week.

The teams are preparing to get started once again, which means several changes to the basketball and wrestling schedules

BASKETBALL

The schools are out tomorrow, but Cartersville will play today. The girls game will begin at Gordon Central at 5 p.m., followed by the boys’ game at 6:30 p.m. The Canes will then play their regularly scheduled game Tuesday at home against Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe. Wednesday will be a makeup game of the game scheduled Jan. 28 at Coahulla Creek. Friday’s game at home against North Murray and Saturday’s game at home against Fulton County Leadership Academy are still on as scheduled.

Adairsville will not play its home game today against Coahulla Creek. The game will be moved to Saturday, Feb. 8. Monday’s rescheduled home game against Ringgold is moved to Saturday, Feb. 1, with the girls playing at 6 p.m. followed by the boys’ game.
