Katrina having impact on local sports schedule
By By BRUCE HIXON-Sports Editor
While Hurricane Katrina is not expected to have an impact on Alabama High School Athletic Association varsity football schedules like Hurricane Ivan did last season, it has played havoc with the local school sports calendar.
The T.R. Miller Lady Tigers volleyball team has had their season opener wiped out twice. T.R. Miller was supposed to have opened its season Monday at Jay (Fla.). Katrina wiped out not only that match, but also Tuesday's tri-match at W.S. Neal which also included Thomasville. No make-up date has been announced.
The T.R. Miller "B" football team was supposed to host Escambia County Monday, but that game was cancelled and is not expected to be made up. T.R. Miller is supposed to play Escambia County again, this time at Atmore, next Tuesday.
The Jefferson Davis Community College Lady Warhawks volleyball team had its home opener against Gulf Coast (Fla.) Community College postponed Tuesday. No decision has been made at this time concerning today's match at Faulkner State.
