MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. — Morgan County Schools on Monday canceled the 2020-21 Morgan County High School Basketball Tournament in an effort to keep students, players and the community safe from COVID-19.

"Dear Morgan County Athletic Fans,

On behalf of the administrators and coaches of our 5 high schools, I am sad to announce that we are canceling the 2020-2021 Morgan County High School Basketball Tournament.   

This decision was not made easily nor without thinking about the history and heritage of this great tournament.  However, in the end, the most important aspect of our decision was the safety and well-being of our students, parents, and communities.   

We look forward to continuing our great tournament during the 2021-2022 season. 

Thank you for your support," the district wrote on Facebook.
