Saturday’s Athletic Events Canceled Or Postponed Due To Snow Forecast

The News-Gazette

Thursday, Jan. 10 -- Because of the forecast for snow this weekend several athletic events for our local high schools that were scheduled for Saturday have been canceled or rescheduled. That includes the four games involving Rockbridge County and Parry McCluer in the sixth annual Rock the Ribbon Roundball Shootout basketball event at RC, the indoor track meet at Virginia Military Institute, and the Rockbridge County High School wrestling team’s tournament in Bristol, the Ed Cressel Classic. Friday’s Rock the Ribbon games, which don’t involve local teams, are on as scheduled. Saturday’s seven scheduled games have been rescheduled to Saturday, Jan. 26. That schedule will be modified slightly, but the game times will most likely remain the same. We will post the schedule when we receive it. At this point, there are no plans to reschedule the indoor track meet or the wrestling tournament. The PM wrestling team is scheduled to Staunton News Leader Tournament on Tuesday and Thursday, postponed from Saturday, starting at 6 p.m. on both nights. We will let you know if there are further schedule changes.
