Colquitt County canceled next week’s game with Alcovy and won’t resume play until its Oct. 30 Region 1-7A opener against Camden County.

‘Colquitt County athletic director Greg Tillery made the announcement. "Due in part to several positive COVID-19 cases and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to cancel the Alcovy football game. We fully expect to resume the season against Camden County on Friday, October 30, 2020, at 7:30 pm. Also, the homecoming activities will coincide with the Camden County football game.’’

It’s the second interruption of Colquitt’s football season since games began Sept. 2. The Packers canceled their first two games with Brookwood and Marietta. They are 4-0 and ranked No. 3 in Class 7A.

Colquitt is the second highly ranked Class 7A to shut down this week. On Wednesday, No. 1-ranked Lowndes announced that it was shutting down practices until Oct. 26.
