High School basketball tips off for public schools

by Jamaar Hawkins, i64sports

The atmosphere in high school gymnasiums across Hampton Roads will look a lot different this winter due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But with winter sports finally scheduled to tip-off tonight, high school athletes in the 757 will take whatever provisions are in place in order to ensure a return to the hardwood.

Beach schools will play a district-only schedule this year with boys-girls doubleheaders most nights. As it stands, only the Beach District and Gloucester County schools will be participating among public schools. However, Gloucester will play an out-of-district schedule only as the school is a part of Newport News Public Schools which will not be playing winter sports this year.

Here is a look at tonight’s public school schedule:

Tallwood at Green Run, Girls @ 5:30pm, Boys @ 7:00pm

Salem at Landstown, Girls @ 5:30pm, Boys TBD

Kempsville at Princess Anne, Girls @ 5:30pm, Boys @ 7:00pm

First Colonial at Kellam, Boys @ 7:00pm

Grafton at Bruton, Girls @ 6:00pm

York at Poquoson, Girls at 7:00pm
