Families of Rome High School athletes were invited to the school’s performing arts center for a special ceremony recognizing four athletes who signed commitments to attend college next fall. After the welcome, educators who coach the four signees spoke about their accomplishments not only in sports, but in the classrooms and hallways of Rome High School.
  • Head volleyball coach Katie Price spoke about Abby Payne. Payne will attend Maryville College on a scholarship to play volleyball. Price said that Payne was a leader, on and off the floor and was a huge part of the success of their team.
  • Jessica Hewitt serves as the head soccer coach for RHS, and she said that West Georgia College is lucky to have Janet Hartman join their team next fall. Hartman, according to Hewitt, led by example and taught her teammates the value of hard work.
  • Hogan Ingram will join Georgia Southern University’s golf program after his last rounds this spring. Head golf coach Kevin Davis sang Ingram’s praises and said that the support from his parents was key to his success. As for Ingram’s skill level, Davis said that all he had to do was, “feed him, drive him to the tournaments, and stay out of his way.”
  • Cross country coach Luis Goya spoke about Patrick Motes and his journey to being one of the best distance runners at RHS. Goya ran down a list of the future Augusta University runner’s accomplishments and he said that the list covered seven pages of text.

The Southeastern Conference will utilize Dec. 19 as a playing date for football games rescheduled during the 2020 season due to the impact of COVID-19 and has established parameters that allow for the adjustment of game opponents as late as five days prior to competition, SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey announced Friday.

  • As of Friday, all games planned for Nov. 21 will be played as scheduled. All games currently scheduled to be played after November 21 are subject to weekly evaluation in order to reschedule games that have been postponed during the 2020 season.
  • “It has been a goal of the SEC to play a complete football schedule provided we maintain a healthy environment for student-athletes and everyone around our football programs,” said Sankey. “The added flexibility of a December 19 playing date for teams that do not qualify for the SEC Football Championship and the ability to adjust opponents on five-day notification provide a greater opportunity for our schools to play a full schedule of games in 2020.”
  • Dec. 19 is the date of the SEC Football Championship Game to be played in Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Teams that do not qualify for the championship game would be eligible to play games on Dec. 19 that are rescheduled during the remaining weeks of the 2020 football season.
  • In addition, the Conference office may revise the weekly football schedule up to 9 p.m. on the Monday prior to Saturday games for the purpose of maximizing the number of games available to be played. The games subject to rescheduling would only be those on a team’s original schedule and against opponents that a team has not yet played.
