Kylie Wade (23) of Roanoke Rapids clears a rebound during a Nov. 22 showdown with Northwest Collegiate and Technical Academy. Wade and the Jackets, undefeated on the season, return to the floor this evening as the host of Big East 2A/3A rival Rocky Mount.

The Roanoke Valley’s winter athletics slate will experience some alteration this week because of COVID-19.

Weldon City Schools, in step with rising case numbers in the area, nixed this evening’s basketball games versus Tar Roanoke 1A foe Wilson Prep, while officials at Northampton County have done the same with their rumble against Warren County.

“We will not play tomorrow or Wednesday. We are monitoring due to a couple of positive cases,” NHC athletic director George Privott said in a message to the Herald on Monday.

“If no one else contracts it we will resume on Friday (sic).”

Northeast Academy, forced to sack Monday’s varsity hoops tablet, will make its return to the floor tonight at home versus Terra Ceia.

Other coverage-area schools, including Halifax Academy, Northwest Collegiate and Technical Academy, Southeast Collegiate Prep Academy and Roanoke Rapids High School, are set for a business-as-usual week of competition. KIPP ENC, scheduled to play three times this week, did not respond to a message.
