It’s game day.
The Callaway Lady Cavaliers, who haven’t played in more than a week, will make their much-delayed debut in the Region 4-AAA tournament today at Haralson County.
Callaway will play the host team, Haralson County, at 4 p.m., with the winner advancing to the semifinals on Tuesday.
The Lady Cavaliers were supposed to play early last week, but the game was moved to Wednesday, and then to Friday, and then to Saturday, and then finally to Monday.
The tournament schedule kept being adjusted because of the winter storm last week that impacted the teams in the region.
The tournament finally got under way on Saturday, and the Haralson County girls beat Rockmart 59-35.
That win earned sixth-seeded Haralson County a date with third-seeded Callaway.
This will be the third meeting of the season between the two teams, and while Callaway has won both meetings, the most recent game was decided by just two points.
On Feb. 5, Callaway edged Haralson County 50-48.
The Lady Cavaliers (15-8 overall) went 10-4 in region play, leaving them in third place behind Chapel Hill and Central-Carroll.
Callaway’s boys’ team, meanwhile, will play its tournament opener on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
The Cavaliers (17-6 overall) went 11-3 in the region, and they’re the number two seed behind Douglass.
The Cavaliers have a bye into the tournament semifinals, meaning they’re guaranteed a spot at state no matter what happens.
WRESTLING: The state wrestling meets for all six classifications were supposed to be held under the same roof over the weekend, but Mother Nature had other plans.
Because of the winter storm, the state meet was unable to go on as planned at The Arena at Gwinnett Center.
The state meet was pushed back to this weekend, and because the Gwinnett facility won’t be available, the six state meets will all be held at different locations.
The Class AAAA state meet, which includes wrestlers from LaGrange and Troup, will be held at West Laurens High School on Friday and Saturday.
Callaway’s Brandon Sutton will compete in the Class AAA state meet that will be held at Buford High School on Saturday.
