Rainy rescheduling: All Thomasville sporting events on Friday afflicted

THOMASVILLE —

Five Thomasville-related sporting events on Friday were plagued by weather woes. Read ahead to see when the contests will be made up.

Soccer: Hardaway at Thomas Co. Central:

Rescheduled – April 18

Coaches Kristy Peeples (boys) and Courtney Warner (girls) contacted Hardaway officials at noon on Friday to postpone the Friday’s soccer tilt, which must be made up due to its regional priority.

Peeples said she lurked the radar all morning, saw no chance to get the game in and didn’t want to force Hardaway to take a chance and make the 145 mile trip.

Central, however, was forced to cancel its April 18 home games against Camden County to accommodate the rescheduling with Hardaway.

“That was the only date that worked between the other coach [and] us,” Peeples said. “We had to unfortunately cancel the game with Camden.”

 

Soccer: Thomasville at Berrien

Rescheduled – April 17

The Thomasville boys and girls soccer squads will have to put on hold their chance to lock up the 1-AA title. The teams’ final region games against Berrien on Friday have been pushed back to Thursday, April 17, the night before Thomasville’s prom.

Berrien was hoping to move Friday’s game to has early as Monday, when the Rebels will be on spring break, but the Thomasville JV squad will be at Lowndes.

“We went back and forth this morning trying to figure out something that would work,” Thomasville boys coach Keith Gwaltney said.

His Bulldogs are 6-1 in 1-AA and have a chance to lock up the top seed in the state tournament with a win over Berrien.

The girls remain undefeated in the region, and aim to secure the No. 1 seed for the second year in a row.

“It’s tough that we have to wait almost three weeks to finalize [the region], but my thoughts are that we should be getting better over that time. There’s a lot more time to practice and improve.”
