Class AAA Girls: Blessed Trinity vs. Kell: POSTPONED
The girls game between Kell and Blessed Trinity was postponed to a later date. The playing field was not properly lined and one of the nets had fastening issues. The GHSA made a decision based off the time it would take to prepare the field and determined that it would be in the benefit of both teams to postpone the action.
