PCHS modifies basketball schedule for week ahead

Polk County High School has announced changes to its basketball schedule for the week of Dec. 18.

All of Monday’s home games with Chase have been postponed, and school officials are working to reschedule those games.

Tuesday’s home games with Brevard and Wednesday’s away games at East Henderson will be played with the exception of varsity men’s basketball. The junior varsity women’s and men’s teams and varsity women’s team will be the only teams in action this week.

The decision was made in the wake of incidents last week involving the Polk County men’s basketball team in games at North Buncombe and Landrum. District and school officials noted that the decision to not participate in this week’s men’s varsity games was made in order to provide ample time to complete investigations of both incidents.
