Playoffs/Relay: The biggest playoff series in six seasons will be this weekend at Southside Field as Tallassee plays host to Trinity. The Tigers advanced to the second round for the first time since 2011 with last weekend's opening round win.

The Wildcats (23-6) were ranked No. 4 in the final ASWA Class 4A poll. Tallasseee (23-13) was No. 6.

The first game of the series is scheduled for 5:00 on Friday night. This is also the weekend of Tallassee's Relay for Life. The event begins at 5:00 on Friday night.

The American Cancer Society event is earlier on the calendar this year. It was in June last year.

Conflicts happen every year, but this is a big one.

Tallassee's Relay for Life started in 1994. The city has raised more than $2 million during that span. It's not just a fundraiser. It's a social event.

I attend the event annually and look forward to it. This year, I'll be at the ballpark.

I would drop by the new Relay venue (Tallassee City Hall) after the games, but the event has also been shortened for 2017. It will end at 8:00.

Team members and volunteers for Relay for Life will be a stone's throw across the Tallapoosa. We would like to have them cheering on the Tigers, but they'll be a part of something very big as well.

I'm sure the planners didn't forsee such a conflict. Similarly, many Tallassee band members missed the THS football team's quarterfinal playoff game last season. A Chicago trip that was set months in advance took precedent. It had been 17 years since a Tigers team had made such a run in the post-season.

1300 WTLS/106.5 FM will broadcast live on Friday night at Southside Field. Airtime will be 4:30. Audio is simulcast on Spectrum Cable Channel 97 and the TuneIn Radio App. Live video is not permitted during the playoffs.
