With this weekend’s winter storm passing through the region, a number of Saturday’s games were postponed in both boys and girls basketball.
The quadruple header of the New Boston Holiday Tournament headlines the list of games that were affected. The boys consolation game between East and the Ashland (Ky.) Rose Hill Christian Royals as well as the championship game pitting the host Tigers and South Webster has been moved to Wednesday night.
On the girls side, no makeup date has been set on how the finishing order of the tournament will take place. New Boston was scheduled to play Rock Hill in the third place game while Minford and Rose Hill Christian were set to battle for the girls crown.
This is the second game the Falcon girls basketball team will have to be made up. A Dec. 8 trip to Paint Valley was also postponed and has yet to be rescheduled.
The same fate fell upon the girls SOC I contest between Notre Dame and Western. It was slated as the final game before the second round of conference play for both schools. No date has been set on when it will be rescheduled.
The Titan boys also had their home game with Raceland (Ky.) postponed because of the weather. No makeup date either for that contest.
In a test against a traditionally-strong Division II girls team, Wheelersburg’s road meeting with Miami Trace also has to be played at a later date.
At this time, the Valley boys are still on schedule to play Unioto and the holiday tournaments in Pike and Adams County are planned as scheduled.
