Multiple Teams · Basketball teams adjust schedule, game times because of warped floor in gym

The Akins basketball teams’ schedules and game times have recently been altered because of a defect in the small gym’s floor.

Water damage has caused the wooden floor to warp. Coaches and administrators are hopeful that the floor will be fixed as soon as possible, but they have rescheduled many of the games for the B teams because the small gym will not be useable for games for the rest of the season.

The revised schedule includes the following changes:

  • Wednesday, December 9th 6:00 Boys B vs. Anderson
  • Saturday, December 12th 12:00pm Girls B vs. Austin
  • Saturday, December 19th 12:00pm Boys B vs. Westlake
  • Wednesday, January 6th 6:00pm Boys B vs. Hays
  • Saturday, January 9th 12:00pm Girls B vs. Lake Travis
  • Saturday, January 16th 12:00pm Boys B vs. Lehman
  • Saturday, January 23rd 12:00pm Boys B vs. Austin
  • Saturday, January 30th 12:00pm Boys B vs. Bowie
  • Saturday, February 6th 12:00pm Girls B vs. Hays
  • Wednesday, February 10th 6:00pm Boys B vs. Lake Travis
  • Saturday, February 13th 12:00pm Boys B vs. Del Valle

The problems with the court also means that game start times will be different for all games with freshmen starting at 5:15 p.m., JV starting at 6:30 p.m. and Varsity starting at 8 p.m.
