Location of Class A state championship game moved

Wilcox County has moved Friday's GHSA Class A state championship game against ECI to the Cougar Den in Cordele, 20 miles west of Rochelle just off Interstate 75.

The move was confirmed on the GHSA Web site this afternoon after Wilcox County had requested a change of venue. The school already has sold more than 5,000 tickets for the game, which was originally set to be held at Wilcox County's 2,000-seat Donnie Clack Stadium.

The Cougar Den holds 6,000 people, and has significantly more standing-room viewing areas.

The game is still scheduled for an 8 p.m. start, with Wilcox County acting as host school. Tickets will be on sale at the gate.
