All the moving and shuffling of high school games this week has hopefully come to a halt.
As it stands now, Tishomingo County became the final Daily Corinthian area football team to see their contest moved to a Thursday kickoff.
The updated prep gridiron schedule will consist of all contests being played on Thursday, October 8 with all kickoffs scheduled for 7 p.m.. The slate includes Baldwyn at Biggersville, Kossuth at Nettleton, Alcorn Central at Amory, Thrasher at Myrtle, Belmont at Booneville, Walnut at East Union and McNairy Central at Collinwood.
The Biggersville/Baldwyn game will serve as the DC Game of the Week while the Booneville/Belmont affair will be homecoming for the Blue Devils.
Corinth at Noxubee County was forfeited by the Tigers due to concerns of players being exposed to COVID-19. The Warriors will resume their schedule next Friday, Oct. 16 when they host New Albany.
The regular season for volleyball is all but complete with three more matches remaining locally before the MHSAA playoffs begin.
Walnut will host East Union Friday with JV playing first at 12 noon followed by varsity. The Lady Wildcats are reportedly in the playoffs and will likely play at Madison St. Joe’s in a first round match next Tuesday. Tishomingo County concludes their season when they host New Albany. The varsity match has been moved up to 4 p.m. with JV and middle school to follow. Corinth will host Ripley Friday with JV first at 5 followed by varsity. The Lady Warriors playoff hopes are slim but are not completely gone. If they miss the postseason it would end a seven-year streak of playoff appearances.
McNairy Central saw their volleyball season come to an end Tuesday when they lost to Lexington in the district tournament.
When the MHSAA playoffs start next Tuesday, Alcorn Central will travel to Amory for their first round match while Biggersville goes to Hamilton for their first ever playoff appearance.
