Cartersville basketball coaches Mike Tobin and Cindy Moore found themselves in a most frustrating position Friday night due to the Bartow County school system’s decision to shutter down Cass, Adairsville and Woodland high schools due to potential inclement weather. That decision negated a scheduled Friday game between Cartersville, a city school, and Adairsville, a county school — game that has since been rescheduled for Wednesday night.

“Our school was open,” coach Mike Tobin said. “But all we could was practice on a day when we play our next opponent.”

Tobin found himself at home instead of pacing the sidelines at Adairsville High School following practice.

“I was thinking about finding a game to watch, but Corey and I decided just to stay home and relax, along with preparing to play three games in four days starting Tuesday.

A revised schedule has the Canes hosting Coahulla Creek Tuesday, traveling to Adairsville on Wednesday and then hosting Gordon Central on Friday.

Despite a vast discrepancy in their overall record, the Gordon Central-Cartersville matchup could very well decide the No. 1 seed in Region 5B-AAA.

The Canes are 20-0 overall, 10-0 in the region and ranked No. 1 in the state. The unranked Warriors are 11-8 overall, 9-1 in the region.

“There’s a lot of basketball to be played next week,” Tobin said. “But we will be just fine. Our players are used to playing two to three games each day during AAU ball.”

Moore used the off day to strengthen themselves mentally and physically during a 90-minute afternoon practice.

“It was different to be practicing instead of playing Adairsville Friday,” Moore said.
