Area teams adjust after snow cancels games
Thursday, February 21, 2013
Thursday’s weather has forced everyone back to the drawing board when it comes to scheduling.
Several area districts have been affected going forward:
• Action in the Class 3 District 8 Tournament has been moved to Friday, weather permitting. The semifinals feature Blair Oaks against Hallsville at 6 p.m. and Southern Boone against Eugene at 7:30 p.m. The girls championship game between Blair Oaks and California, originally set for tonight, has been shifted to 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
• It’s a similar story in Class 3 District 9, as both boys semifinals are now set for Friday. Fatima will play Dixon at 6 p.m. and St. James will face off with Cuba at 7:30 p.m. The title game, set for Saturday, will now be held at 8 p.m. as the girls championship game will shift from Friday to 6 p.m. Saturday.
• Ditto for the boys in Class 2 District 8. They’ll now play their games Friday — Cole Camp vs. Russellville at 6 p.m. and Tipton vs. Linn at 7:30 p.m. — forcing the girls title game between Russellville and Linn to take place at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
• And it’s more of the same in Class 1 District 9. Both boys semifinals will shift to Friday, pitting Glasgow against Prairie Home at 6 p.m. and Community R-VI against Chamois at 7:30 p.m. That will force the girls title game between Chamois and Glasgow to move to 2 p.m. Saturday.
In regular-season action, the Helias Lady Crusaders saw their season finale get moved. Their game against Owensville, originally set for Thursday, will now be played at 6 p.m. Friday, preceding the boys game between Helias and Rock Bridge set for 7:30 p.m.
The Lincoln women’s tennis team saw its season-opening matches set for Friday get canceled. The Blue Tigers were originally slated to play three matches this weekend at the Missouri Western Invite in St. Joseph, including a scheduled match with Maryville on Saturday that had already been postponed. Lincoln was also supposed to open Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association play with a match against tournament host Missouri Western Friday, and that contest will be rescheduled for later this season. There are no plans to reschedule a match with Newman, the Blue Tigers’ other scheduled opponent for Friday.
