White County High School administration and athletic director Terry Crain released the school’s COVID-19 policy for viewing the high school basketball games this upcoming season. 

In summary, please note the following guidelines for each game at Roy Sewell Gymnasium, on the campus of White County High School.

  • No bottom floor reserved seating will be utilized this season.
  • There will be a limited number of tickets for upper level seating sold for each game.
  • No senior citizen pass cards will be honored this season.

Crain offered the official statement to the press this week.

“COVID-19 has caused many disruptions for schools, business, and our nation as a whole,” he said. “The 20-21 basketball season will also be affected unlike any year before. In order to keep our student athletes, cheerleaders, coaches, visiting teams, and officials safe, we will not be utilizing the bottom reserved seats this season. We will also limit the number of tickets available at the door for each game. We regret that we will not be able to honor senior citizens cards during basketball this year. Ben Lomand will continue covering our home games on Channel 6, with Warrior Media broadcasting on YouTube and Facebook. We want to thank our Warrior fans for their patience and understanding during these uncertain times.”

The basketball teams tip off at 6 p.m., Nov. 17, the Hall of Fame Game.  The Warriors and Warriorettes will play Christian Academy at Knoxville, at 6 p.m., Nov. 19, to finish off this week’s games.
