WGNS will be airing a special series of shows, concentrating on how the COVID-19 crisis has affected area teams and sports events.

Bryan Barrett and Jon Dinkins will talk to area coaches and school officials on how this unprecedented event has impacted the local sports scene.

WGNS is working to fill the sports void by looking back over some memorable high school sports games.

This Thursday night at 6PM, join Bryan Barrett and Jon Dinkins for the State Farm Retro Re-air of the Riverdale girls state championship victory over Houston from 2018.

Amid the concerns of COVID-19 and the recommendations being made by the CDC, we feel it is in the best interest of all involved to postpone the 2020 TSSAA Hall of Fame luncheon and induction ceremony.

The TSSAA's Board of Control voted to "suspend" the state basketball tournaments for at least eight weeks while Tennessee is in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. They're also still hopeful spring sports postseason competition can still happen.

The TSSAA Board of Control and Legislative Council will meet via conference call on Tuesday, March 17 and Wednesday, March 18, respectively. The Board of Control meeting will begin at 2:00 p.m.

Miss sports like we do? WGNS is here to help you through the withdrawal with a retro re-air of some memorable prep games.

This Wednesday at 6PM, we will re-air the 2014 Class AAA boys state championship game between Blackman and Oak Ridge.

The TSSAA addresses policies and concerns surrounding spring sports amid the COVID-19 crisis.


As the situation continues to evolve daily with COVID-19, we have received a number of inquiries from schools/school systems who are considering suspending classes and/or extracurricular activities for an extended period of time.

Like many other athletic associations and leagues throughout the country, TSSAA has decided that the health and safety of our student-athletes and spectators alike require that we limit fan attendance at our girls' and boys' state basketball championships.

The top girls and boys basketball players in five classifications of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association were honored by being named the winners of the Mr. and Miss Basketball Awards.

The Blackman boys will open up play in the 2020 Blue Cross Basketball Championships next Wednesday (March 18th) at 1:15pm with Mt. Juliet. All state tournament games will be played at MTSU's Murphy Center.
