Rome is slated to return to action on Thursday versus East Paulding, but with the remnants of Hurricane Sally bringing heavy rainfall to northwest Georgia, that contest remains in doubt. The Lady Wolves’ next scheduled contest is Tuesday when they battle at South Paulding High School.

Coosa is scheduled to return to action on Thursday at Gordon Central, but heavy rainfall may see a postponement. The Lady Eagles will host Pepperell next Thursday, Sept. 24.
