The Crescent Construction MLK Bash has undergone another scheduling change.
COVID concerns moved the event from Eau Claire High School gymnasium to the arena at Brookland-Cayce High School, with more room for social distancing.
Then, on Friday, it was announced that all five varsity girls basetball games planned for Saturday were canceled.
On Twitter, event organizer Carey Rich said the decision was based out of "caution" due to the inclimate weather expected this weekend.
"This was a very tough decision to make," he said. "I talked with several local officials for their trusted input. In an attempt to stay consistent with Gov. (Henry) McMaster declaring a state of emergency, we think canceling was our best option, especially with him encouraging motorists to stay off the roads this weekend. "There's just too much uncertainty, a number of unknowns, and consequently, we'd rather err on the side of remaining safe.
There were originally six girls games planned for Saturday. With teams dropping out due to COVID-19 protocols, it was reduced to five games highlighted by a Top 10 Class 3A matchup between defending champion W.J. Keenan and Camden.
Fans will still be encouraged to wear masks.
"As of now, the boys portion is still on," Rich tweeted, "but we will monitor the weather very closely over the next 48 hours and make a decision that's consistent with choosing safety over sports, while also yielding to the decisions of the different school districts."
A total of six boys games involving three Chronicle Country schools (Lexington, Irmo and Gray Collegiate) are scheduled for Monday. For more information, contact William Hatten at (803) 728-3679.
