Lake Oconee Academy currently plans to utilize mobile learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year unless the coronavirus outbreak largely subsides.
That much was certain as of press time this past Tuesday. Although a formal decision had not been announced regarding sports cancellations at the school, the decision to close the LOA campus likely indicates that the spring sports season is over.
LOA’s sports teams competed through last Thursday, when the Georgia High School Association recommended that its member schools suspend sports for two weeks. Among the final LOA teams to compete were its soccer programs.
The LOA soccer teams traveled to Washington-Wilkes last Thursday. They competed soon after the GHSA released its suspension recommendation.
The Lady Titans cruised to a 7-0 victory over the Lady Tigers. Although the boys game was more competitive, the Titans left Washington with a 3-1 victory.
LOA’s teams were scheduled to host First Presbyterian Day School last Saturday. The GHSA suspension forced those games to be skipped, though.
Should LOA elect to resume spring sports, the soccer team’s schedule would consist of two more games, which would be Region 7-A matches against Greene County and Crawford County, and any other non-region games they could fit into an abbreviated schedule.
The games against Greene County and Crawford County were rescheduled to April 10 and April 14, respectively. Follow Lake Country Sports on Facebook for all the latest updates regarding sports throughout the area.
