Weather alters area sports school schedule
The snow in the area on Friday brought a lot of changes to the area sports schedules.
In New York the Section IV Wrestling Championships and the Section IV, Class Bowling Tournament were both postponed on Friday.
The wrestling will become a one-day tournament today at Broome County Arena. Weigh-ins will be from 9-10:30 a.m. and wrestling will begin at 11 a.m. Division I will wrestle on two mats and Division II will wrestle on four mats.
All preliminary-round losers will be out of the tournament as first-round wrestlebacks were eliminated. Wrestlebacks will be held to six places, starting with the quarterfinals.
The quarterfinals are set to begin at 1 p.m. with the semifinals scheduled for 3:30 and the consolation and championship finals at 7 p.m.
The boys class sectional finals for bowling were moved to Monday at 2 p.m. at Midway Lanes in Vestal, with the girls schedule remaining on track for today.
The IAC Swimming Championships will now begin finals at 1 p.m. today with diving to be held after the swimming finals at approximately 4 p.m., instead of before the swimming.
All high school basketball games on Friday were postponed with many of them moving their games until Monday.
A couple of key games which were moved to today are the Notre Dame and Waverly boys and girls matchups. The Notre Dame boys are at Waverly needing a win to force a playoff with Watkins Glen for the division title. The girls are at Notre Dame, a Waverly win gives them the division title, a Notre Dame win forces a playoff. Both of those games begin with a 1 p.m. JV start today.
Northeast Bradford at Canton boys was also postponed until today. The game will have a 6 p.m. JV start and Eddie Larcom of Canton enters the game needing 22 points to joining teammate Emmett Watson, who achieved the feat on Wednesday, in the school's 1,000-point club.
Among the boys' basketball games moved to Monday are Towanda at North Penn and Wellsboro at Williamson. For the Green Hornets a win on Monday would secure the NTL West title.
