Thorsby and Jemison postpone basketball contests

Basketball season has begun for many schools in the county, but the same COVID-related issues that caused postponements during the football season will create similar issues during the basketball season.

The basketball games between Thorsby and Jemison for Dec. 3 have been postponed due to the COVID precautions in place.

“Covid strikes again,” Jemison senior Nathan Johns posted on Twitter after finding out the news.

Boys and girls games had been scheduled as part of the slate of games to be played.

It was a decision agreed upon by both schools.

However, the schools were also quick to suggest their intentions to reschedule the game at a later date.

It is the second time in the young season that Thorsby has been dealt a postponement after Westminster Christian Academy in Huntsville pushed back its originally scheduled game against the Rebels on Nov. 24.
