Once again, Mother Nature has altered the local schedule for high school sports.
With nearly every school closed both in Centre County and the region, almost every scholastic event scheduled for Monday was postponed or cancelled. State College’s hockey game with Pittsburgh Central Catholic was the only varsity contest to be played as scheduled.
A few makeup dates were set Monday, with Bald Eagle Area now planning to wrestle at Penns Valley next Monday, Penns Valley’s visit to BEA for girls’ basketball reset for Thursday, State College’s girls’ basketball game at Williamsport moved to Feb. 11 and State College’s trip to Big Spring for a Mid Penn swim meet also moved to Thursday.
No makeup dates were set for Bellefonte girls’ basketball at Central Mountain or Philipsburg-Osceola’s boys’ basketball game at Bellefonte.
With more snow in the forecast for Tuesday night and Wednesday, this may not be the last time athletic directors will have to scramble to reschedule games, and time is dwindling to get games played, with the District 6 playoffs beginning Feb. 17.
