On Wednesday, Tecumseh announced they're canceling their next two contests, citing unforeseen circumstances as the reason why. The Braves will return to the gridiron on Oct. 16.

Nort Posey also announced Wednesday that the Vikings are canceling their contest against Forest Park due to several players being in quarantine.

Both Tecumseh and North Posey joined Boonville, Mt. Vernon, and Pike Central as teams that won't be taking the field.

One team still searching for a game is Gibson Southern, due to the Wildcats sitting out because of contact tracing.

"It's definitely been overwhelming, no question about it," said Gibson Southern Athletic Director Jon Adams. "At the same time, we are willing to do that because we want to get these student-athletes on the field, on the court, whatever it may be, as quickly and as safely as possible."

Adams went on to say that the Gibson Southern Titans are still willing to play, even if the challenge were to arise as late as Friday morning.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
