Cancellations: The Amanda Elzy and J.Z. George doubleheader slated for Friday was called off because of the quarantining for the J.Z. George girls team.

J.Z. George’s girls have played one game so far, a 78-16 loss to Kosciusko. The boys have yet to play because of the football playoffs and now the quarantining.

The Dec. 1 games at Kosciusko are likely postponed. Both teams may return Dec. 4 against Philadelphia at the East Webster Shootout.

GHS-Leflore: Saturday’s girls game between Greenwood and Leflore County has been canceled, but the two boys teams will play at 11 a.m. at Leflore County’s gym.
