The Standard Journal - - SPORTS - From staff re­ports

Can­cel­la­tions at the be­gin­ning of last week for win­ter weather have caused a bit of trou­ble with the sched­ule, but the Jack­ets and Lady Jack­ets were back on track by the week­end, though their games weren’t.

Both teams took losses on the road at Cass on Satur­day af­ter get­ting back to busi­ness fol­low­ing the break due to win­ter weather.

The Lady Jack­ets took a 69-60 loss on the road, hold­ing onto a big first half lead af­ter go­ing up 21-9 dur­ing the open­ing quar­ter and hold­ing onto a slim lead head­ing into the locker room as the Lady Colonels came storm­ing back dur­ing the sec­ond quar­ter.

Cass outscored Rock­mart 24-14 dur­ing the third quar­ter, and 18-13 in the sec­ond to take a 69-60 win over the Lady Jack­ets to round out the week­end. It was the first game back for Rock­mart fol­low­ing last week’s win­ter storm, forc­ing games to be called off on Tues­day at Gor­don Cen­tral.

Fri­day games sched­uled at Chat­tooga were also post­poned.

The same story for the Jack­ets, who took a 10-point 53-43 loss on the road af­ter re­turn­ing to work.

Both teams will have a chance at re­demp­tion as they face Pep­perell at home af­ter press time on Tues­day even­ing, fol­lowed by Gor­don Cen­tral on Thurs­day in a make-up game for last week on t he road and then com­ing back to host Dade County on Fri­day even­ing.

The Jack­ets, sit­ting at 10-7 over­all and 4-3 in the re­gion, are in fourth place as of press time in 7-AA bas­ket­ball with Chat­tooga still un­de­feated at 8- 0 in the top spot, fol­lowed by a tie be­tween Pep­perell and Dade County for sec­ond and third place at 5-3 in re­gion play.

Rock­mart’s girls stand at 11-6 on the sea­son with only a few more weeks to go, with a 5-2 re­gion record at sec­ond place in 7-AA play only trail­ing be­hind a dom­i­nat­ing Model team, who stands at 9-0 in re­gion play and 15-3 on the sea­son. Ar­muchee stands in third place and Chat­tooga in fourth at press time.
