All Class A-Public baseball games halted due to court injunction

COLUMBUS, Ga. - The Georgia High School Association has suspended all Class A-Public second round baseball games further notice due to a legal injunction.

Teams affected in the News 3 viewing area are #12 Taylor County and #1 Schley County.

The GHSA has the following statement on their website:

Because of a legal injunction placed on the GHSA Wednesday, all Class A-Public second round baseball series are being suspended until further notice. 

While we hope to have this matter resolved quickly, we do not anticipate it being finalized in time to start the series on the scheduled date of Thursday, May 3. All other second-round series are to proceed as scheduled.  

We will notify all participating schools and game officials as soon as we are notified by the court. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may create.
