County tournament games cancelled

The county basketball tournament games scheduled for tonight have been cancelled because of the threat of severe weather, School Superintendent Keith Moore said.

Chilton County is under a tornado watch, and severe weather is expected between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.

So, tonight’s games will be moved to Wednesday at their scheduled times. Chilton County High’s and Thorsby’s B-teams will play at 4:30 p.m., followed by Chilton County High and Jemison in girls action at 6 p.m. and Jemison and Verbena in boys varsity action at 7:30 p.m.

Moore said a representative from the National Weather Service recommended the cancellation.
