We have another retro re-air of Rutherford County prep sports for you this Thursday (April 9). This week, we go back to 2013 when the Smyrna Lady Bulldogs won the state softball championship.
The first edition of Primetime Sports Extra will feature Cincinnati Reds pitcher and former Smyrna athlete Sonny Gray and Siegel softball and girls basketball coach Shawn Middleton.
Amid the concerns of COVID-19 and the recommendations being made by the CDC, we feel it is in the best interest of all involved to postpone the 2020 TSSAA Hall of Fame luncheon and induction ceremony.
The TSSAA's Board of Control voted to "suspend" the state basketball tournaments for at least eight weeks while Tennessee is in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. They're also still hopeful spring sports postseason competition can still happen.
The TSSAA Board of Control and Legislative Council will meet via conference call on Tuesday, March 17 and Wednesday, March 18, respectively. The Board will discuss the status of the currently suspended state basketball tournaments, a spring sports discussion, and the effects of the COVID-19 virus.
Miss sports like we do? WGNS is here to help you through the withdrawal with a retro re-air of some memorable prep games.
