MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – Madison Academy confirmed their first game against Briarwood Christian Academy that was scheduled for August 21 has been canceled for precautionary reasons.
School officials said several factors led to this decision including travel issues, the size of the visitor stands and the locker rooms, in addition to general COVID-19 concerns.
No decision has been made at this time about rescheduling the game later in the season.
Fort Payne will now host Briarwood Christian to open their season on August 21. They were originally scheduled to face Athens, but that game was also cancelled.
