Students in Bryan County Schools may not have classes until Monday, but student-athletes are playing on.
Bryan County softball finishes up the Region 2-AA tournament today at 4 p.m. with a game against Jeff Davis. If the Redskins win, they play a doubleheader starting at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Screven County in the first round of the state tournament. A loss puts Bryan County at Harlem Wednesday for a doubleheader starting at 4 p.m.
Richmond Hill softball, meanwhile, hosts Jonesboro in the state tournament for a doubleheader starting at 5 p.m. Friday. The “if necessary” game in the best-of-three series would be at noon Saturday at Richmond Hill.
Richmond Hill was supposed to have faced Brunswick last week for the Region 2-AAAAAA championship, but that was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew. Wildcats Coach Angie Hummeldorf said Richmond Hill and Brunswick came to a mutual agreement based on the regular season to give Richmond Hill the No. 1 seed based on the regular season. The Wildcats beat the Pirates three times during the regular season.
Note that admission to Friday’s doubleheader at Richmond Hill is $10 per person. The price is set by the Georgia High School Association.
The Richmond Hill cross country team hosts the Caesarstone Fishy Invite at 4 p.m. Wednesday with 30 teams expected to participate, and the Wildcat volleyball team travels to Habersham at 5 p.m. Thursday for the first round of the GHSA playoffs.
