A fluid schedule allowed the Henry County High School baseball team to squeeze in a game Friday with South Gibson at Huntingdon.
The Patriots dropped a 4-2 decision to the South Gibson Hornets to slip to 2-2 on the season. Henry County will be out of action for the next two weeks after the school system announced Friday that it would suspend all athletic events for the next two weeks.
The suspension of games includes middle school sports in Henry County. The Paris Special School District followed suit on Sunday in announcing school would be closed and all school activities were suspended during that time.
The Inman Middle School Bulldogs baseball team did get in four games during the weekend in the Hulmes Classic at McNeill Park. On Friday, the Bulldogs beat Huntingdon 7-5 and blanked Obion County 4-0. Inman scored an 11-1 victory over Union City on Saturday before falling 6-0 to South Gibson. Inman heads into its break with a 6-2-1 record.
