Just 7 games are on the Gold division first-round schedule after word came Saturday that Lebanon would not be a participant in this year’s tournament due to quarantine from Covid-19 protocol. It’s the 2nd time the Yellowjackets have been idled by the pandemic; the first occurred during the pre-season in mid-November. This will be the first time in sixty-five years that Lebanon has not played in the Blue and Gold. The Yellowjackets January 5th game with Eldon is also a casualty with hopes of rescheduling sometime in the coming weeks…..Two of Saturday’s winners in the Blue division will play tomorrow on KJEL as Hartville will meet Ava at 1:00 and Camdenton will face Nixa at 5:00…
