An impending winter storm has effectively pulled the plug on two games involving Wilson County’s largest public high schools. A directive was sent out from the Central Office Thursday morning to Lebanon, Mt. Juliet, Wilson Central and Watertown High Schools canceling all after school activities on Friday, Dec. 6 due to concerns over an expected Arctic blast Friday.
The Mt. Juliet at Lebanon games as well at the Wilson Central at Hendersonville doubleheaders have been postponed.
Watertown was not scheduled to play Friday night, but the Tiger teams are set to host Westmoreland on Saturday -- weather permitting.
As of deadline on Thursday, the Donelson Christian Academy games at Friendship Christian set for tonight were still on.
Mt. Juliet Christian Academy is idle tonight as well, but there is a twinbill slated for Saturday in Eagleville.
